Exeter vs Lincoln
Sky Bet League Two Play-Offs Semi-Final
7:45pm Thursday 17th May
St James Park
EXETER 3-1 LINCOLN (AGG 3-1)
FULL-TIME! Exeter are going to Wembley! For the second-straight season the Grecians are into the Sky Bet League Two play-off final.
Jayden Stockley put them in front in the first half and two absolute crackerjacks from Hiram Boateng and Ryan Harley put the game beyond Lincoln. They pulled one back via Matt Green late on but it was nothing more than a consolation.
Paul Tisdale, now the longest-serving manager in English football, will take his side back to the home of English football, where they'll face either Notts County or Coventry.
90+6: Green gets into the box but there's some more superb last-ditch defending from Exeter to deny him. Moore-Taylor has been a rock at the back for the home side.
90+3: YELLOW! Moxey goes into the book for time wasting for Exeter.
90+1: SEVEN minutes of added time. This isn't quite over yet...
WATCH: LINCOLN'S PENALTY SHOUT
Should Lincoln have had a penalty and a way back into this game after this challenge by Moore-Taylor on Rhead?
89: The ball just hasn't quite dropped for Lincoln tonight at crucial times. A corner comes in and Rhead knocks it back into the danger area with his head, it could go anywhere but ends up bouncing through everyone.
YELLOW! Stockley goes into the book for Exeter.
85: SUB! Another change for Exeter as Robbie Simpson makes way for Lloyd James.
84: YELLOW! Poor challenge from Bostwick on Taylor and the Lincoln man goes into the book. Bit of frustration building.
WATCH: LINCOLN PULL ONE BACK
Here's how Matt Green got Lincoln back into the game...
82: Break in play as both men get patched up here. Bandages all over the shop.
80: PENALTY SHOUT! Lincoln have a big shout for a penalty as Moore-Taylor absolutely clatters into the back of Rhead as they both go up for a header, but the referee waves any appeals from the away side away.
"For me that's a penalty," says Don Goodman in the commentary box.
GOAL! EXETER 3-1 LINCOLN (Green, 78)
Well, well, well. It's not quite over yet. A long ball into the box is nodded on by Rhead and Matt Green gets onto the end of it to prod the ball past Pym.
Now, Lincoln, what have you got?
EXETER 3-0 LINCOLN (AGG 3-0)
76: SUB! First change for Exeter sees Troy Archibald-Henville come on for Hiram Boateng.
WATCH: HARLEY'S THUNDERBOLT
Here's how Ryan Harley put this tie to bed in thunderous fashion...
73: SUB! Lee Frecklington makes way for Tom Pett in another change for Lincoln.
72: Lincoln still pushing forward but surely it's all in vain now. This would be the mother of all comebacks if they couldn't get anything here.
GOAL! EXETER 3-0 LINCOLN (Harley, 69)
If you know what Ryan Harley's left peg is capable of then you shouldn't be giving him any space at all, even 30 yards from goal. The Exeter midfielder controls the ball then thunders home an absolute beauty on the half-volley. Allsop couldn't get near it.
What a goal! Exeter are surely heading to Wembley.

EXETER 2-0 LINCOLN (AGG 2-0)
65: CHANCE! Great play from Whitehouse as he turns his man on the byline and gets the ball into the box, it comes off about six Lincoln heads and falls for Rhead, but he can only nod the ball right into the hands of Pym.
62: Another high ball into the Exeter box which Whitehouse manages to get onto the end of, but he's flagged offside before he can knock it down for a team-mate. Little bit sloppy from him, which sort of sums up Lincoln's night so far.
58: Lincoln having a bit of a spell here as they push for a way back into this tie. Exeter have been superb defensively though and don't look like being broken down.
55: SUB! First change for Lincoln as Ollie Palmer replaces Harry Anderson.
WATCH: BOATENG ADDS SECOND
What a fantastic goal this was from Hiram Boateng. Well worth a watch I assure you...
50: Lincoln will be feeling all the more aggrieved now following the goal that was ruled out just before half-time. They need to respond quickly now to have any chance here. As it stands it'll be Exeter on their way to Wembley.
GOAL! EXETER 2-0 LINCOLN (Boateng, 47)
Wow, just wow. Absolutely stunning from Hiram Boateng to hand some daylight to Exeter here. He picks the ball up inside his own half, charges forward to the edge of the area, maybe gets a bit of luck as he bundles the ball past a defender, but then looks up and curls the ball precisely off the post and in.
Mountain for Lincoln to climb now.
EXETER 1-0 LINCOLN (AGG 1-0)
SECOND HALF! We're back under way at St James Park...
WATCH: LINCOLN'S DISALLOWED GOAL
Should Elliot Whitehouse's effort have been ruled out? Take a look for yourself...

HALF-TIME! A far better game so far than the first leg last Saturday. Exeter lead in the game and the tie thanks to Jayden Stockley's strike after 27 minutes, while Lincoln may feel slightly aggrieved to have had an equaliser ruled out a few minutes before the break.
It's still very tight at St James Park and you wouldn't rule the Imps out here at all.
45+1: Two minutes added on at the end of the first half.
44: Exeter still leading thanks to Stockley's goal as we approach half-time...
40: GOAL DISALLOWED! Ball is in the back of the net and Lincoln think they have the equaliser! Whitehouse is the man celebrating after smashing the ball into the back of the net but it's been ruled as by the officials after the linesman saw Rhead handballing it in the build-up.
WATCH: EXETER TAKE THE LEAD
Here's how Jayden Stockley fired Exeter in front a short while ago...
33: Exeter looking confident now as they go in search for a second. Harley trying to pull the strings in the middle but an attempted through pass ends up rolling out of play.
30: What do Lincoln have in their locker now? They've got plenty of time to find an equaliser, but you'd have to fancy Exeter from here.
GOAL! EXETER 1-0 LINCOLN (Stockley, 27)
We have a goal! It's the first one of the tie and it's come to the home side at St James Park. It's a poor attempt at a headed clearance from Wilson as he sends the ball straight back into the danger area. Exeter get it back into the box and eventually drops for Jayden Stockley, who doesn't make any mistake with the low finish across Allsop.
EXETER 0-0 LINCOLN (AGG 0-0)
24: Pause in play after Woodyard goes down following a flying arm from Simpson. Looked accidental but it was a bit of a nasty one.
22: Boateng causing problems again as he charges into the box from the side following a corner and puts a dangerous ball across the six-yard box, which Lincoln just about manage to flick clear. Looks like Frecklington who got the key touch.
Back Matt Green to open the scoring as a live Sky Bet Price Boost at odds enhanced from 7/1 to 8/1!
18: YELLOW! Eardley into the book for Lincoln for a late challenge on Taylor.
15: Lincoln come close as Rhead causes all kinds of problems for the Exeter defence. A ball comes into the box and the Imps striker wins a header which is heading towards goal, but the Grecians just about manage to smuggle it clear.
14: Another free-kick in another good position for Exeter, it's Boateng over it this time but he lofts it right out of play.
10: BIG CHANCE! Exeter have a great chance to score. Boateng charges forward and feeds Stockley, his pull-back then deflects into the path of Simpson in the six-yard box, who turns well but then pokes the ball wide. Should have done more there.
8: Harley looks up and tries to lift the ball in behind for Taylor's run in behind, but Lincoln goalkeeper Allsop anticipates it well and rushes out to avert the danger.
Home side have started better here.
5: Exeter win a free-kick in a good area and there are three standing over the ball. They try something far too clever, however, and the chance is wasted.
3: The pitch is not in great condition to be honest, so the ball might spend quite a bit of time in the air tonight. Should suit big Matt Rhead up top for Lincoln.
KICK-OFF! We're under way at St James Park!
