Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Exeter City and Swindon Town go head to head at St. James Park in what is expected to be a close League Two encounter. Exeter City aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Mansfield Town, with the team eyeing a spot in top seven, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Both Diabate and Brown continue to miss out with injuries, while all Nombe, Zanzala, and Hartridge are pushing for a start after the trio recovered from their respective injuries.
Josh Coley is a major doubt. As for the visiting side, loanee Louie Barry remains in the recovery room, while both Joe Tomlinson and Akim Odimayo are major doubts. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the horizon as the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment.
Highlighted Player (Nicky Ajose):
Nicky Ajose is an English footballer who started his youth career at Manchester United. Despite signing a professional deal with the Red Devils, Ajose did not see any game action for the English giants at the senior level. After spending the 2010/2011 season on loan at Bury, the 168-cm tall forward signed a contract with Peterborough United in the summer of 2011.
Nicky Ajose played for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Chesterfield, Crawley Town, Bury, and Swindon Town on loan before joining Leeds United on a three-year deal in August 2014.

Nicky Ajose played for the likes of Charlton Athletic, Bury (loan), and Mansfield (loan) before moving to his current club Exeter City. The Grecians attacker was born in Bury, England, on October 7, 1991, and his preferred foot is right.

The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
