Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Port Vale and Exeter take on each other at Vale Park in what is expected to be a close League Two encounter. The Valiants are eager to stay in automatic promotion berth, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. The bad news for the hosts is that important defender Dan Jones is banned for Saturday’s clash.
Exeter, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous four league fixtures. The Grecians are two points behind top three, and seeing that they will go for a win in the Vale Park showdown as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Both Sweeney and Caprice are pushing for a start as Exeter duo Hartridge – Coley failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Tranmere at the weekend.
