Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Exeter will look to build on back-to-back wins over Carlisle and Reading when they face Stevenage in the EFL Cup round 2. The Grecians have been making progress week by week and, as a result, the bookies see them as favourites to beat Stevenage on home soil. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but midfielder Reece Cole should sneak into the starting XI.
The Boro, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Portsmouth in their last League One game. Considering that Stevenage will be without suspended midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey in the midweek clash, we are tempted to put our money on Exeter. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team. You should bear in mind that in their last meeting at St James Park Exeter defeated Stevenage 2-1. We predict that history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Team (Exeter):
Nicknamed the Grecians, Exeter City are a professional football club that welcome their rivals at St. James Park. The stadium was opened in September 1904, and it can hold up to 8,696 spectators. Exeter City play their homes in white jerseys with red stripes, and black shorts, while violet and yellow are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Grecians made it to the FA Cup quarter-finals on two occasions (1930/31, 1980/81), with the team advancing to the FA Trophy semis in the 2005/06 season. The likes of Harry Gee, Cliff Bastin, Maurice Setters, Dick Pym, Fred Whitlow, Arnold Mitchell, Tony Kellow, Fred Binney, Darran Rowbotham, Lee Sharp, and David Pleat are one of the most notable footballers who played for Exeter City in the past.
Plymouth Argyle, Torquay United, Bristol Rovers, and Yeovil Town are considered the club’s fiercest rivals. The Grecians currently compete in the League Two.
