Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tuesday’s football match at Sands Venue Stadium pits together Scunthorpe United and Exeter City, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Iron occupy 17th position in the standings, but, as things stand now, they should not find it hard to secure the League Two survival. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Abobaker Eisa, who scored his seventh goal of the season in the 1-1 draw with Salford City.
The Grecians, on the other hand, aim to climb to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will go for a win in the midweek clash. The visitors want this win more than the mid-table hosts, and we predict that Matt Taylor’s men, who crushed Leyton 4-0 on Saturday, are going to pick up all three points from the match. Matt Jay scored a hat-trick at the weekend, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
