Fixtures

Sunday 14th May 2017 - LEAGUE TWO
Blackpool v Luton Town 18:30
Carlisle United v Exeter City 18:30

Blackpool, thanks to a final day win, secured seventh-place to earn, if that's the right choice of words, a semi-final meeting with Luton, likely to be most people's favourites to go up via the play-offs?

Pools, beaten in three of their final 10 games, will have to be at their very best to overcome the Hatters, at Bloomfield Road, let alone in the tie overall, as the visitors have lost only once in the last 10, for what it's worth when it comes to the end of season play-offs.

It's a case of 'we'll meet again' as Carlisle and Exeter met to round off the regulation League 2 season, a game that saw the Cumbrians triumph in Devon last weekend to secure a play-off spot, finishing behind the Grecians, fifth, on goal difference.

With a brilliant away record Paul Tisdale will want to make this count to boost his sides' chances when they return to St James' Park, avenging that season finale defeat, not that it made too much difference.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We'll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we're looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don't just look also have a say. We don't just want your vote, which you can do to the right, we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
