Exeter City v Middlesbrough Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 7.45pm UK Time, Tuesday 31st October 2023

 

As one of the three lowest ranked sides still in this season’s EFL Cup, Exeter City dumped Premier League side Luton Town out of the competition and will be confident of seeing off Championship outfit Middlesbrough this evening.

Exeter City got their 2023/24 EFL Cup campaign off to a decent if uninspiring start with a 2-1 win over Crawley Town and a penalty shoot-out victory over Stevenage in the first two rounds of the tournament. Nevertheless, things came alive when the Grecians disposed of Premier League opposition in the form of Luton Town in the third round, despite the Hatters playing with an extra man for the final few moments of the match. This win sent Exeter through to the last sixteen of the competition for the second time in their long history and while they are currently languishing in the bottom half of the League One table, they will be more than happy to turn their minds to this midweek EFL Cup clash with Middlesbrough at St James’ Park.

Middlesbrough had been enjoying an excellent seven-game winning run prior to the weekend visit of Stoke City who managed to keep the home side at bay in a 2-0 win at the Riverside. This was the first time in nine outings that ‘Boro had failed to find the back of the net and we envisage them making up for this when they head to deepest Devon tonight. All three of Middlesbrough’s EFL Cup victories have been away from home this season and while the visitors will be rotating their injury-plagued resources tonight, we envisage them getting the better of an Exeter City side which are being held back by attacking shortcomings and a frail defensive set-up.

 

Back Middlesbrough to win-to-nil at best odds of 17/10
