Port Vale vs Exeter City
England – League Two
Date: Tuesday, 20-March-2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Vale Park (Stoke on Trent).
Exeter seek three points to climb back into the play-off zone after a poor showing at Morecambe on the weekend. Moreover, the team has not tasted victory in the last three games, core reason why they are sitting just outside the top seven. Yet, they have a game in hand than the four teams above them, which means a win is vital on Tuesday night.
Port Vale on the other hand are in the worst possible as they haven’t won a league game in calendar year 2018. Their most recent four are stalemates though, including the weekend’s home game against Stevenage. However, the win-less streak of 12 games could have an adverse effect on team morale while going up against a team like Exeter, who are in the top half of the table.

Port Vale vs Exeter: Prediction
Both Port Vale and Exeter will be looking for a win on Tuesday night to make their positions better at the opposite ends of the table. However, my money is on Exeter, who will be in a better mindset than a team like Port Vale who haven’t won in 13 league games. Besides, the hosts do not have the stability in defense, which could be the key factor that decides the final outcome of this League Two fixture.
