Competition: League Two
Market: Exeter to beat Lincoln
Odds: 31/20 @ Bet365
With Exeter and Lincoln battling out a close fought 0-0 draw at the Sincil Bank Stadium on Saturday afternoon, the pair are now just 90 minutes from booking their spot at Wembley later this month.
For Paul Tisdale’s Exeter side, after doing well to halt a late second-half push from Lincoln on Saturday, The Grecians will fancy their chances at St. James Park in the second leg. Conceding under a goal per game at home this year, Exeter have now only been beaten once at home in League Two since November 2017. For the hosts, Exeter will be looking for forward Jayden Stockley to carry on his impressive form this season. The 24-year-old now has 24 goals in all competitions this year and also has seven in his last nine.
As for Danny Cowley’s Lincoln side, The Red Imps have had another historic year after being promoted to the Football League last season. After breaking into the playoffs at the first attempt, Lincoln have also tasted victory at Wembley this year when they beat Shrewsbury 1-0 to lift the Checkatrade Trophy. While the hosts were the stronger side in the first leg, they will travel to St. James’ park as the underdog. Cowley’s side have now failed to win any of their last six matches away to The Whites and they have also lost their last three visits on the bounce.
