Just five points separate fourth and seventh in League Two – the smallest gap between the sides still in contention for promotion from any division.

So it should come as no surprise that these play-offs are the most difficult to call.

That is reflected in the prices, with Exeter – who finished highest in the table – as long as to go up.

Paul Tisdale’s side go into their semi-final in poorer form than their opponents, having won just two of their final five matches of the regular season.

That dip saw the Grecians beaten to automatic promotion by Wycombe, who finished four points ahead of them.

And, while their possession-based football has taken them this far, it is likely to be undone by Lincoln’s more direct approach.

The Imps’ aggressive style of play, embodied by bustling striker Matt Rhead, who has scored nine goals and collected 11 yellows this season, has been hugely effective in knock-out football.

Danny Cowley’s side reached the FA Cup quarter-final last season while still in the National League, and beat Shrewsbury in the Checkatrade Trophy final at Wembley last month.

So Lincoln ought to fancy their chances of negotiating the first hurdle at .

The seventh-placed side has gone on to win promotion in five of the last seven seasons and, given the Imps’ recent successes, they look a good bet to continue that trend at .

The other semi-final is between Coventry and Notts County, who finished just two points apart after trading victories this season.

With so little to split them, the tie could rest on the performances of two key players.

Nottingham Forest loanee Jorge Grant has netted 15 league goals for their cross-town rivals so far this term.

But, having scored just one in his last 20 matches, Grant is coming into the play-offs cold.

The Sky Blues, meanwhile, boast one of League Two’s form strikers in Marc McNulty.

The 25-year-old scored 23 league goals this season, just two shy of Golden Boot winner Billy Kee, and finished with five in his final four appearances.

Given that Notts County are away in the first leg and have recorded just two victories from their last 11 on the road, their position as the least-fancied of the four sides at is understandable.

A McNulty-inspired Coventry are well worth backing to reach the final at , even if is too short to represent value for promotion.
