Exeter City 17:15 Colchester (Agg 0-1)
Cheltenham 20:00 Northampton (Agg 2-0) 
Due to Covid 19, England's second division will not play 46 rounds.  Instead, the current results will be taken to calculate the final results.  Therefore Colchester will face Exeter in the first leg of the promotion match to League One.

The rules for League Two are that there are 3 direct promotions for the top 3 teams.  And the positions from Wednesday to Saturday will play off the first leg and compete for the 4th ticket. Colchester in 6th will face Exeter in 5th. Currently after 37 rounds, the host has 58 points  7 points behind the away team.  However, that doesn't make much sense in a play off and on.

Colchester had a lower ranking, so they had to play at home in the first leg.  And the whole team is ready for the 2 most important matches of the tournament.  Coach Mcgreal will have certain calculations.  After a long break, Colchester had friendly matches for the players to get used to the pitch.  They will kick to attack to take advantage before the return leg away.  Will still be a familiar 4-2-3-1 diagram in the reception of Exeter.

The away team should be playing the second leg at home.  This is considered an advantage, but in the context that Covid 19 banned the audience from the field, that does not mean much.  Experts say there were times when Exeter took so many advantages to be in the top 3 on the rankings.  But then the form of decline before the Covid 19 push them down to fifth place. And now it's the playoffs off the first leg.

A very important match for both teams.  Exeter is led by English coach Taylor.  He and his students have carefully prepared for the upcoming trip.  In terms of the professional force, Exeter judges that it is stronger.  Their play is also much more varied and evolved.  Just play the right ability, the army of coach Taylor will get the advantage after the first leg.

Past confrontation between the two teams in the past is somewhat in favor of the away team.  Specifically, in the last 6 meetings, Exeter won 2, drew 3 and lost 1. Asian Handicap gave the guests the ratio of 0.25 hosts - Over / Under 2.25.  The dealer is leaning towards Colchester in this match.  However, according to the soccer experts, the visitors are the name with many advantages.  As analyzed above they have more powerful forces.  The players have regained their good form after a long break.  It is very difficult for the host to beat Exeter.  It is likely that the two teams will be inconclusive in the match of 0 goals.  Catch Exeter and follow the Under Door.
