Exeter vs Colchester Betting Tips

Colchester will be looking to capitalise on their first leg lead and secure their spot in the League Two play-off final when they travel to Exeter this Monday evening.

A late goal in the opening encounter of this play-off semi-final has moved Colchester a step closer to Wembley. Nevertheless, we’re only at the half way mark and Exeter will have home advantage in this second leg.

Incredibly, the Grecians are unbeaten at St James’ Park in 18 straight competitive fixtures. In fact, their only home defeat this season came back in October when they lost 3-1 to Grimsby.

With regards to this particular fixture, in their last seven head to head games Exeter have managed four wins and three draws. Colchester have not managed to win any of those games away at St. James’ Park.

However, let’s not forget that Colchester don’t have to win this game in order to progress. Their one goal lead from the first leg means that they have a lifeline in this second contest.

Looking at the betting, it’s no surprise to see Exeter as the favourites. Their home record speaks for itself and it does seem that Colchester will have a tough job on their hands despite coming into this game with a lead.

Our recommendation is to back the hosts to progress at the price of 7/4. Our second bet is to back the correct score of 2-0 at 9/1. Two of Exeter’s last three wins over Colchester have seen the Grecians score two or more goals. All three, meanwhile, have been to nil.

    Ryan Bowman’s extra-time strike sends Exeter to Wembley

    Date published: 6/22/2020 11:33:31 PM

    Exeter finally came out on top of their League Two play-off semi-final with Colchester as Ryan Bowman’s goal deep into extra-time sent the Grecians to Wembley with a 3-2 aggregate win.

    After the hosts went 2-1 up in the tie, Colchester levelled things up in the 78th minute and as both teams looked dead on their feet, Archie Collins played a superb through ball to Bowman, who made no mistake with a clinical finish to secure a 3-1 victory on the night.

    Exeter, trailing 1-0 from the first leg, made a promising start to the game and went in front after 10 minutes.

    A Randell Williams cross found Alex Fisher, whose shot was well saved; Jake Taylor’s follow-up was blocked and as the ball fell to Aaron Martin, 15 yards out, he drilled a fine shot past Dean Gerken and a host of defenders and into the net.

    Colchester’s Cohen Bramall was penalised for a handball, jumping for a high ball with Williams, giving Exeter a free-kick just outside the penalty box.

    The Colchester man picked up a yellow card for his misdemeanour and Gerken had to be at his best to keep out Williams’ fine effort, that dipped over the wall and towards goal.

    Colchester rarely threatened in the first half and the closest they came was when Luke Norris glanced a header goalwards, but recalled goalkeeper Jonny Maxted was equal to it.

    The second half started in cagey fashion, but Exeter went 2-0 up on aggregate after 58 minutes. Bowman headed against the upright from a delightful Nicky Law cross, Fisher picked up the loose ball and teed up Jayden Richardson and his shot squeezed under Gerken and into the net.

    Exeter were having opportunities to attack, but their poor final ball let them down and with 12 minutes remaining, Colchester levelled the tie.

    Bramall’s cross was palmed away by Maxted and straight to Courtney Senior, who made no mistake with a simple tap-in.

    Maxted made amends with a great save in the 90th minute as he denied Kwame Poku in a one-on-one and another counter ended with Theo Robinson seeing an effort deflect off Pierce Sweeney and go behind.

    Both teams struggled at the start of extra-time as tiredness kicked in and chances were very much at a premium. Bowman did have an opportunity as Brennan Dickensen crossed from the left, but he could not adjust his body and get a shot away.

    Nigel Atangana was off target from distance for Exeter as they began to get on top of a game that had ebbed and flowed from the first whistle. But the longer it wore on, the more tiredness became apparent for both teams.

    Then, in the 112th minute, Bowman put Exeter in front after a superb driving run through midfield and pass by Collins to finally win the tie and send the Grecians to a third Wembley final in four years.
