Exeter Double Chance
Hartlepool’s bright start to the campaign seems to have burned out and Pools have won only once in their last five matches in league and cup. In contrast, Exeter seem to be on the up and The Imps took seven points from the last nine on offer without conceding a single goal. City certainly have the edge in terms of form ahead of Saturday’s skirmish and they are available at a price worth pursuing in the double chance market as a result.
Under 2.5 Goals
The spark has visibly fizzled out of Hartlepool’s football of late and they have hit the net just once in their last four fixtures combined. With Pools looking a little blunt, they could struggle to make an impact against an Exeter team that has gone three League Two games without conceding. The teams’ records suggest that a game of slim margins could unfold on Saturday and the under 2.5 goals line appeals with that in mind.
Half Time Result: Draw
Hartlepool have been every inch a second-half team this term and remarkably, six of their first eight League Two matches of the season were level at the break. That run of first-half stalemates included three of their four home tests since the summer and Pools’ habit of keeping things tight in the opening 45-minute period could be worth backing again when they face in-form Exeter.

Hartlepool Team News
Hartlepool could be without key striker and top scorer Tyler Burey again this week, which would be a major blow to their chances of success. Gavin Holohan and Mark Shelton are also in a race to bit fit for the weekend and their absences would leave a couple of big holes to fill in midfield.
Exeter Team News
Exeter are expected to be without injured midfield pair Jack Sparkes and Sonny Cox this week, while four players – Sam Stubbs, Colin Daniel, Archie Collins and Josh Coley – are all rated as doubtful. The Imps have been performing well without their walking wounded however, and they could jump up to as high as second spot if results are favourable this weekend.
