Exeter vs Lincoln predictions and betting tips for the League Two play-off second leg on Thursday evening with a goals tip and match prediction included.
This League Two play-off encounter is nicely poised with both sides cancelling each other out on Saturday afternoon. It was an absorbing goalless draw which saw the Grecians have the better of the first half followed by a significantly improved second half display from the Imps. Lincoln have been excellent this season and Danny Cowley is once again planning meticulously for this fixture. The game is sold-out and there will be a great atmosphere around St.James’ Park. Exeter will be hoping to bounce back from their disappointment in the League Two play-off final last season and although there has been some animosity between Tisdale and the fans this season, everyone appears to be pulling in the same direction at the moment. The hosts haven’t lost at home since February 17th and have won four of their last five matches and will be confident of keeping Lincoln at bay for the majority of this game.

Lincoln have failed to score in four of their last seven away games but they are also incredibly difficult to break down. They kept it tight in the FA Cup and took advantage of the limited opportunities that came their way. Danny Cowley says his side are ready for extra time and penalties and backing the Imps to qualify is probably the best way of playing this tight tie.The first of our Exeter vs Lincoln betting tips is Lincoln to Qualify which is priced at Evens with Betfred.
Both sides appear to have the measure of one another and with so much as stake, risks are unlikely to be taken here. HT Score – 0-0 is priced at 6/4 with William Hill and is the second of our Exeter vs Lincoln predictions.
Matt Rhead was well-shackled by Jordan Storey throughout the first leg and he will need to find another route to goal.

Troy Brown could potentially return for this tie and Paul Tisdale will have a decision to make. Jordan Storey was excellent in the first leg and he could keep his place in the side. Lee Holmes is the only definite absentee.
Lee Frecklington is back in training but this game may come too soon for the midfielder. Michael Bostwick was described as 80% fit during the first leg but he should continue in the side.
