Tip Reasoning

  • Port Vale have only failed to score once in their last 17 league games, while it has been 15 league matches since Exeter failed to find the net.
  • Exeter have kept one clean sheet in 18 games, in an FA Cup replay which was nullified after the Grecians used too many substitutes.
  • While both teams remain in promotion contention, Port Vale have lost three of their last five league games, and Exeter have lost three on the spin.

Wounded promotion-chasers meet in the Potteries

Although Port Vale and Exeter City sit third and fifth, respectively, in League Two, as they chase promotion, neither have found things easy recently. Port Vale have lost three of their last five league games, with manager Darrell Clarke lamenting the effects of a recent injury crisis, while Exeter have lost three on the spin.

Exeter boss Matt Taylor berated his ‘leaky’ side after a 1-0 defeat to Tranmere last week, also noting that his team have become an ideal outfit to back for both teams to score punters. The Grecians have one clean sheet in their last 18 competitive matches, and even that was wiped from the record books, after Exeter fielded too many substitutes in an FA Cup replay with Bradford City.

Both teams to score the safest play?

Port Vale have only failed to score once in their last 17 league games, despite their injury woes, and Exeter have found the net in each of their last 15. With both sides going through difficult periods, it may be advisable to steer clear of backing either, and to do as Taylor suggested, and back both teams to net in Staffordshire.

In terms of a correct score prediction, Exeter have managed five draws in their 10 away matches in League Two this season, and it could be prudent to back another, in what is likely to be a tense and nervous affair between two out-of-sorts sides with lofty ambitions. 1-1 could, therefore, be a solid play.
