Exeter Double Chance
Exeter have yet to fully hit their stride this season, though The Grecians have at least been tough to beat. City have avoided defeat in each of their last four League Two fixtures and having beaten Scunthorpe home and away last term, Exeter should arrive at the Sands Venue Stadium with plenty of confidence. With that considered, we’re tipping them in the double chance market this weekend.
Under 2.5 Goals
Scunthorpe’s clash with Exeter could struggle to get pulses racing in Lincolnshire however. 100% of The Irons’ last five league matches produced under 2.5 goals, while Exeter have notched just once in three away assignments this season. With chances expected to be in short supply on Saturday, backing under 2.5 goals to hit the net again could be a smart manoeuvre.
Half Time Result: Draw
Remarkably, five of Scunthorpe’s first six League Two fixtures this term were all square at the interval, while 50% of Exeter’s first half a dozen games were level at the break. Both teams have struggled to get going early doors in their matches, and that in turn suggests that backing the half time draw could prove profitable again.
Scunthorpe vs Exeter: Match Preview
Scunthorpe have won only once in six attempts in League Two this season and their miserly haul of just four goals highlights where the crux of their issues lie. To make matters worse, manager Neil Cox has a glut of injuries to contend with and Ryan Loft, Jordan Hallam, Alex Kenyon and Tom Billson will likely to miss out again on Saturday.
Exeter came through a tough recent gauntlet of fixtures against Bristol Rovers, Harrogate and Forest Green with their pride intact and some points in their pocket, and though The Grecians have recorded just one victory this term, the four draws in their middle column shows how tough a nut they are to crack. City are averaging less than a goal per game this season however, and they must improve their output in the final third to kick on.
