Vital Preview - League 2 Play-Offs, 18th May 2017

The 2016-17 season continues with the play-off semi-final second leg games. This will see us among those involved with a win of course the aim.

Previous results

Sunday 14th May 2017 - LEAGUE TWO
Blackpool 3-2 Luton Town 18:30
Carlisle United 3-3 Exeter City 18:30

What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment come the full time whistle.

Fixtures

Thursday 18th May 2017 - LEAGUE TWO
Exeter City v Carlisle United 19:45
Luton Town v Blackpool 19:45

Goals have been scored in all of the Exeter-Carlisle meetings this season and another six were seen at Brunton Park on Sunday - if there's not more at St James' Park it'll be a major surprise.

Obviously this is the case when it comes to an aggregate tie, but who can score the most will determine who comes through this semi-final, finely poised after a 3-3 draw, as Carlisle came back from three one down to take the momentum with them to Devon.

Luton came from behind to lead at Blackpool before eventually losing Sunday's first leg at Bloomfield Park 3-2. There's likely to be goals seen at Kenilworth Road in the second leg, which could go either way with Pools' slender lead giving them a marginal advantage.

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.
