Odds: 11/5 @ Bet365
For Neil Aspin’s Port Vale side, the Valiants now find themselves in a battle to avoid back to back relegations. Without a win since the turn of the New Year Port Vale will welcome a playoff hopefuls Exeter to Vale Park.
For the hosts on Tuesday night, Neil Aspin knows that his side are firmly looking at the chance of dropping out of League football come the end of the season. Now sat 19th in the table, the Valiants only hold a two-point buffer over the relegation zone. After dropping out of League One last season, Port Vale know that they must dramatically turn around their recent form if they intend to avoid the drop. Since the start of 2018, Aspin’s side are yet to register a single win in their last 11 outings. While the Valiants may have drawn their last four matches on the bounce, Port Vale have only recorded one clean sheet in their last seven. With Forest Green playing also on Tuesday night, Vale could drop into the relegation zone if they leave Vale Park empty-handed.
While the hosts might be in a battle at the foot of the table, the Grecians know that they still a good chance of booking a second consecutive playoff position. For Paul Tisdale, the Exeter boss will know that while his team currently sit eighth in the League Two table, they are just a single point away from jumping into the top six. With a game in hand over their fellow playoff hopefuls, a win for Tisdale’s side could see them jump as high as fifth. Boasting the third best defensive record in England’s fourth tier, Exeter have now only lost one in their last five and have also won three of their last four away matches.
