First of the month: Sky Bet League 2 sides make long-awaited return to action

20 November 2015

Three weeks is a long time in the life of a football fan, but the wait to see their side will come to an end on Saturday.

Four clubs, Wycombe Wanderers, Morecambe, Notts County and Dagenham & Redbridge, have not featured in the League since the last weekend of October, but are back in action this weekend.

Wycombe Wanderers

The Chairboys' results were just starting to pick up at the end of last month, following a run of three consecutive defeats.

A draw against Carlisle United and a 2-0 win away at Mansfield Town had put Gareth Ainsworth's men back on track, pushing them back up to 12th before the break.

Wycombe did have one run-out a fortnight ago, in the FA Cup, and they made the most of their time on the pitch to beat Halifax 4-0. They now visit AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Unlike Wycombe, Morecambe's lay off couldn't have come at a better time. After three straight wins in the first part of October, the Shrimps fell to back-to-back defeats at the hands of Leyton Orient and leaders Plymouth Argyle.

In all competitions, that run of losses is now three, after Dagenham & Redbridge prevailed 4-2 in their midweek FA Cup replay at the Globe Arena.

Jim Bentley's men have the chance to end that streak this weekend, when they visit Barnet.

Notts County

The Magpies have been in a rich vein of form recently, despite their standing of 15th in the Sky Bet League 2 table.

Ricardo Moniz's side are unbeaten in their last four, with their latest game resulting in a 2-1 win over Portsmouth. County entertain another top-four side this weekend, in the form of Northampton Town.

Dagenham & Redbridge

A three-week absence from League duty would only have come as a welcome break for Dagenham & Redbridge manager Wayne Burnett, whose side currently prop up the division.

They've won just one game all season, but none have come in their last 10. The Daggers' last Sky Bet League 2 fixture came against Luton Town, where they lost 2-0, but a 4-2 FA Cup triumph over Morecambe in midweek provided a little solace.

A home match awaits them on Saturday, and it couldn't be much tougher. Second-placed Oxford United are the visitors, and the U's are among the top scorers in the division.
