Luke Harris: Exeter City loanee can add more goals to his game

Exeter City's Fulham loanee Luke Harris needs to add more goals to his game says Grecians boss Gary Caldwell.

The 19-year-old Wales Under-21s player scored just his second senior goal in 2-1 win at Cheltenham Town on Monday.

The Jersey-born forward got Exeter's equaliser at Whaddon Road as City consolidated 15th place in League One.

"He's a brilliant player. I think he's developing all the time, I think he's a player that still needs games at this level," Caldwell told BBC Radio Devon.

"But his play from box-to-box has been brilliant, it's just goals that he needs to add to his game.

"He's done that recently with a goal at Shrewsbury and a goal today, but he's another young player that is developing with us and really improving every game."

The win extended Exeter's unbeaten run to five matches in League One as they continue to put to bed any relegation fears after overcoming a bad run at the end of last year.

Their only loss in the last seven games came away at promotion-chasing Peterborough United and they have taken 10 points from the last 12 available after wins over Shrewsbury Town and Burton Albion, as well as a draw with Charlton Athletic.

"I think we can still improve," added Caldwell, after his side came from a goal down to record an eighth away win of the season.

"We have to get better in those moments when we are on top where we can be more ruthless and kill games off.

"But the players were brilliant - to concede a goal and with Cheltenham shooting down the hill into their own fans it was always going to be a test.

"I thought we defended the box brilliantly at times in that period and then slowly grew back into the game and deserved to win from the whole 90 minutes."
