Exeter haven’t gone two games in Sky Bet League 2 without winning yet – every time City have had a set-back, they have responded with a win.  And City are priced generously to do the same once again as they travel to Glanford Park.

Sky Bet are offering odds of 3/1 for the Grecians to take a third away win on the bounce, following the maximums at Northampton and Fleetwood.  City were 2-1 winners at both Sixfields and Highbury, and there might be value at odds of 11/1 for another repeat of that scoreline.

John O’Flynn injury-time goal was an important facet in that victory in Northampton, and he is 11/4 to find the net anytime in the 90 minutes against the Iron.  Scot Bennett, meanwhile, has had the last say twice already this season – netting late against Fleetwood and Plymouth – and he is 9/1 to score the game’s final goal again.  You can even back the pair to both score at 18/1, whilst there are also odds of 18/1 on returning striker Sam Parkin to score along with O'Flynn.

The last four meetings have been low-scoring affairs (a 1-0 Scunthorpe win, a 0-0 draw and two 1-1 draws) so if you fancy the trend to keep up, odds are favourable at 10/11 for there to be Under 2.5 Goals in the game.

But if you have the feeling that the game might start at a frantic page, there are odds of 3/1 for the first goal to come within the first ten minutes of the game.
