Sky Bet League 2: Matchday 19 preview

24 November 2015

Sky Bet League 2 is back with a full midweek programme on Tuesday, with 12 games taking place up and down the country.

Matchday 18 produced 30 goals in total, with three coming at a sold-out Home Park where Exeter City upset the odds to defeat leaders Plymouth Argyle in the Devon Derby.

Here's a look at all of the Sky Bet League 2 Matchday 19 fixtures, which all kick-off at 7.45pm:

Accrington Stanley v Hartlepool United
AFC Wimbledon v Dagenham & Redbridge
Bristol Rovers v Stevenage
Crawley Town v Northampton Town
Luton Town v Carlisle United
Mansfield Town v Exeter City
Morecambe v Cambridge United
Notts County v Barnet
Oxford United v Newport County
Plymouth Argyle v Leyton Orient
Portsmouth v York City
Yeovil Town v Wycombe Wanderers

This time around, it's Leyton Orient that Plymouth welcome to the south coast and, for the first time since early October, the lead of the Sky Bet League 2 table could change hands.

Anything but a win for the Pilgrims could see second-placed Oxford United pounce and take top spot. The U's won their third game on the spin last time out, and face Newport County at the Kassam Stadium on Matchday 19.

It's been over a month since Northampton Town last tasted defeat, and the Cobblers made it four wins from their last five to maintain third place on Saturday - defeating Notts County 2-1. On Tuesday, they go to Crawley Town, who've picked up 10 points from their last 12 available on League duties.

Accrington Stanley's solid form has continued of late, and they host the stuttering Hartlepool United, while fifth-placed Portsmouth are seeking a first win in six, and play a York City side that haven't won in 12 games, since the opening weekend of September.

Rising up the table and unbeaten in five are AFC Wimbledon, who host bottom club Dagenham and Redbridge, and Carlisle United - locked on points with the Dons - visit Luton Town.

Elsewhere, Mansfield Town can confirm their return to form when they welcome Devon Derby winners Exeter City to the One Call Stadium. The Stags got back to winning ways against Hartlepool at the weekend, following three games without a triumph.

Notts County play at home for the second time in four days, hosting Barnet, while Bristol Rovers lock horns with Stevenage and Cambridge United visit Morecambe. At the foot of the table, Yeovil Town take on Wycombe Wanderers at Huish Park, with the home side looking to halt a streak of 10 matches without victory.
