Lincoln City vs Exeter City: Preview and Predictions

Lincoln City v Exeter City-League Two play-off 12th May 2018 by LeagueLane

Lincoln City vs Exeter City
English League Two
Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Sincil bank Stadium, Lincoln.

Electrifying atmosphere in and around Sincil Bank Stadium will no doubts be of a huge help for the Imps who are looking for the back-to-back promotions having played the National League football last year. They are probably the least pressured of four playoffs contestants which could also benefit Danny Cowley and his side to continue showing impressive displays on the home patch on Saturday afternoon when Exeter City come to visit Lincolnshire in the first leg of their semi-final tie.

The hosts ended up barely catching a spot in the top seven, but they will be anything but heavy underdogs here, particularly in the first match at Sincil Bank Stadium. The Imps lost just once on last 18 occasions on the home patch (in all competitions) and they have full right to hope for the best here having only shipped two goals in last four games in front of the home crowd in League Two.

Lincoln City vs Exeter City: Head-to-head

Teams snatched a win apiece in the regular season, both clinching the spoils in home outings.

Prior to this term’s clashes, it’s been eight years since these two have locked horns, and back then they were also battling it out in the fourth tier of the English football.

Overall, the Grecians lead the tie by a single win, but they only won 3 and lost 6 of 10 matches at Sincil Bank Stadium.

Lincoln City vs Exeter City: Prediction

Exeter’s defensive line has been anything but reliable throughout the season, particularly on travels. This is why we would not be surprised to see Cowley send out three strikers on the pitch, s strategy he used in each of last three league ties). Matt Rhead, Matt Green and Ollie Palmer destroyed Coventry 2-4 away at Ricoh Arena recently and they definitely have what it takes to damage the Grecians’ defense, meaning we’ll try with Lincoln City to bag two or more goals as the main betting option at 1.90.

Also, following Lincoln’s fine spell of form at Sincil Bank Stadium, the home win looks sweet at 1.80 as Exeter shipped two or more goals in three of last four away matches.
