Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Tuesday’s football game at the Super 6 Stadium pits together Hartlepool United and Exeter City, the two teams who played out a 2-2 draw in the FA Cup round original fixture. The Pools have been scoring goals for fun in the FA Cup, with the team netting seven goals in total in the process. The hosts are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Exeter City, and seeing that the away team’s main goal is to secure promotion to the League One, we are tempted to put our money on Gime Toure’s charges.
The Grecians did well to beat Crawley Town and Northampton in the last two games in the League Two, but we believe that the visitors head into the FA Cup replay with the lack of motivation. In their last meeting at the Super 6 Stadium Hartlepool United defeated Exeter City 3-1.
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.
