Exeter vs Lincoln | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
With the regular league season complete in England, the playoffs take centre stage and on Thursday night we will know which team will progress to Wembley for the League Two playoff final. Exeter City welcome Lincoln City to St. James’ Park for the second leg of their League Two playoff semi-final and there is all to play for in a closely matched tie. The first leg ended 0-0 at Sincil Bank and both teams will believe they have what it takes to make it to the final and possibly earn promotion to League One.
Exeter City will be pleased to come into this second leg at home with the score at 0-0 following the first leg. The second half of that game proved tough and Exeter City were forced to withstand pressure from Lincoln City but escaped with a 0-0. The draw means Exeter City have lost only 1 of their last 8 League Two games and the defeat came away from home at Stevenage. On home soil, Exeter City have won 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5 matches and have lost 1 of their last 11 at St. James’ Park.
They have been in good goal scoring form in-front of their own fans and netted at least 2 or more goals in 4 of their last 5 home games. Exeter City won this match between the two teams 1-0 during the regular league season but that was back at the start of the campaign.
Lincoln City can be pleased with the way they approached the second half of the first leg but it wasn’t enough to see them take a lead into this game. The draw means they have failed to win any of their last 3 League Two games and their form has dipped a little at just the wrong time. The Imps have won 2 of their last 7 League Two matches and have won only 3 of their last 10 on the road. However, they are undefeated in their last 2 League Two away games, winning one and drawing one and have scored at least 1 goal in 4 of their last 5 away matches.
Lincoln City will want to forget about their previous trip to St. James’ Park and know if they can keep a clean sheet, they have a chance of reaching the final.
Head to Head
Exeter City are hoping central defender Troy Brown will return to fitness in time for this game but he may struggle to get back into the starting XI following a good display from youngster Jordan Storey. No major changes are expected from the first leg.
Lincoln City have doubts over the fitness of Sam Habergham and Lee Frecklington but are confident they will both be part of the match day squad.
