What 3 things do we need to do to beat Exeter City tomorrow afternoon?

1. An all-out attack in the home leg, for two reasons:

a) Exeter have conceded 40 goals in their 25 away games this season, which is a lot for a side chasing promotion; 35 of those came in their 23 league games, which is the worst away record in the top half of the table for goals conceded. Compare that record to Lincoln’s: 29 in 27 away games, or 25 in 23 league games.

They are flaky when attacked – get after them!

b) Exeter are very strong at home, although they have had a lot of one-goal wins (9). We need to win the tie at Sincil Bank if we are going back to Wembley.

2. Keep Stockley out of the game:

Exeter’s main man has scored 24 goals in 45 games this season including 7 in the last 8. Warning given.

3. Keep the midfield very tight:

Hiram Boateng and Jake Taylor have 6 assists each. If we control the Boateng>Taylor>Stockley axis, we give ourselves the best chance of winning the game.
