Lincoln vs Exeter predictions and betting tips for the League Two play-off match on Saturday afternoon with a goals tip and match prediction included.
With their penchant for knock-out football, Lincoln were probably the side that everybody wanted to avoid in the League Two play-offs. Danny Cowley’s men have been excellent this season and they have already wrapped up the EFL Trophy. They will host the first leg at Sincil Bank. Exeter have been here before and although this is a slightly shorter journey than 12 months ago, this will be far from easy. Paul Tisdale’s men picked up a win on the final day of the season which helped regain momentum and striker Robbie Simpson says there is a ‘good vibe’ around the squad. Something hasn’t been right at the club recently but they need to stick together here. The Imps are unbeaten at home since February 24th and they beat the Grecians 3-2 here earlier in the season. This should be a fascinating battle between two very contrasting styles as both sides eye up a place in League One. See our Lincoln vs Exeter betting tips and predictions in the article below:
Lincoln have an excellent home record and they will be raring to go here. The Cowleys play the percentages and it is mightily effective. Exeter haven’t been bad on the road but they’ve already been defeated here and may have to rely upon the second leg to turn this tie around. The Imps should be able to use the vocal home crowd to their advantage as well. The first of our Lincoln vs Exeter betting tips is Lincoln Win which is priced at 5/6 with Bet Victor.
