Exeter to Win
Exeter are in the midst of an impressive seven-match unbeaten surge in League Two and their return of two wins from their last three assignments suggests they are close to shaking off their drawing habit. The Imps could enjoy more success on Saturday against a Walsall side that has already lost three out of four away fixtures this term and The Saddlers’ poor record on the road means they are worth opposing again this weekend.
Under 2.5 Goals
Both of Exeter and Walsall’s league encounters last season finished 0-0 in a pair of uninspiring stalemates and we expect Saturday’s latest skirmish between the teams to be similarly low-scoring. Four of The Imps’ last five games in League Two produced under 2.5 goals, while Walsall have only hit the net twice in four away tests in the division since the summer.
Half Time Result: Draw
Exeter City are unbeaten at St. James’ Park in League Two this term, though they quite often take time to get up to speed in front of their own supporters. Three of their first four matches on home soil were all square at the interval, though it’s also worth noting that City have yet to concede a first-half goal on their own patch this season. With that pattern set, we recommend backing City and Walsall to go in at level pegging at the break this weekend.

Exeter Team News
Jack Sparkes and Sonny Cox are expected to miss out for Exeter this weekend, while Sam Stubbs, Archie Collins and Josh Coley are all rated as doubtful. City followed up successive victories over Scunthorpe and Sutton with a useful point at Hartlepool last time out and The Imps are handily placed in sixth spot after nine matches of the new campaign.
Walsall Team News
Conor Wilkinson and Rory Holden are expected to be absent from Walsall's ranks this weekend, though captain Joss Labadie returns having served the final game of his three-match suspension in last week’s defeat to Bristol Rovers. After a small spike in result, back-to-back defeats have knocked The Saddlers back again, and Walsall are just one place clear of the dreaded drop zone.
