League Two Preview: 22 August

Games are coming thick and fast in League Two after the full set of fixtures on Tuesday night, and we go again this Saturday. It’s still very early days but we have already had a number of shocks and surprise results. Will that be the case this weekend?

Here is your League Two Preview:

Newport County vs Leyton Orient

League leaders Leyton Orient will be looking to consolidate their fourth straight win when they visit Newport County. The O’s have made a strong start to the season as Ian Hendon looks to guide them back to League One, whilst it’s been the opposite for Terry Butcher’s side, having only picked up one point from their opening three games.

Wycombe Wanderers vs Dagenham and Redbridge

The the previous match preview, Wycombe will be looking to maintain their 100% record when facing a team that hasn’t managed a win yet. Worse still for the Daggers, they haven’t even managed a point, suffering three successive defeats.

Stevenage vs Hartlepool United

Hartlepool make up the sides in League Two with a perfect record, and this weekend they travel to Stevenage, with manager Teddy Sheringham still looking for his first win of the season. Ronnie Moore’s Pools have began the campaign well, and will be looking to add another three points.

Cambridge United vs Crawley Town

Unbeaten Cambridge welcome winless Crawley to the Abbey Stadium, with both sides in search of all three points. The U’s, helped along the way by five goals from new signing Barry Corr, will be looking to continue their strong start to the season, whilst the Red Devil’s will be looking for their first victory back in League Two.

Portsmouth vs Morecambe

Portsmouth will be hoping to keep up the early pressure when Morecambe visit Fratton Park. Pompey are unbeaten, and Paul Cook’s side look strong in these early stages, whilst Morecambe have already began to show a similar inconsistency as they did last season, missing out on the playoffs.

Northampton Town vs Plymouth Argyle

These two sides are neck and neck in the table, with both having win twice and losing just one. Cobblers defeat came on Tuesday at the hands of Bristol Rovers, whilst the Pilgrims came last weekend against Portsmouth. These two sides could certainly end the season in the playoffs.

Bristol Rovers vs Barnet

The two competitors from last season’s Conference League meet at the Memorial Stadium where Bristol Rovers host Barnet. The Gas, who lost their opening game, have won two on the bounce, leaving them in the top half, whilst the Bees, who have recorded just one win, will be looking to put a little run of form together.

Exeter City vs York City

Paul Tisdale’s Exeter have made an average start to the season, winning twice, but by the won goal, with their only defeat coming in the shape of a hiding at Northampton. That said, the Grecians sit just off a play-off spot, whilst York, who’ve won just once so far, are in the bottom half, something that Russ Wilcox will be looking to amend.

Mansfield Town vs Oxford United

Oxford United will be looking to extend their unbeaten run and record back to back wins when they travel to Mansfield. The Stags have already lost twice and they’ll be looking to avoid a third defeat.

Notts County vs Accrington Stanley

Notts County have made a good start to the season, but suffered a setback on Tuesday night after losing at Oxford. Stanley won at Luton in the week, and they’ll be looking to build on that impressive victory.

Carlisle United vs AFC Wimbledon

AFC Wimbledon will be relieved their playing away this weekend having already lost twice at Kingsmeadow. The Cumbrians last home game was an enthralling 4-4 draw against Cambridge, and they’ll be looking to consolidate a victory.

Yeovil Town vs Luton Town

Two sides that have been tipped for promotion this season have made a poor start to the campaign. Yeovil have suffered three successive defeats, whilst Luton are still in search of their first win after two draws and Tuesday night’s defeat.
