Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Following back-to-back wins over Bristol Rovers and Barnsley, Exeter will look to return to winning ways in the League One when they take on Bristol Rovers for the second time in just ten days. The Grecians proved their worth in the triumph over the Tykes, but it has to be noted that Kenya defender limped off with injury. Alex Hartridge is widely expected to replace him in the starting XI.
The Pirates, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Oxford United and they managed to get one. Bristol Rovers did well to put an end to their four-game losing run in all competitions, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Matt Taylor’s troops aim to give fans yet another reason to celebrate, but beating Exeter on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
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.
