Sky Bet League 2: Matchday 11 preview

2 October 2015

Sky Bet League 2 is back with a full schedule for the third time in a week, with 12 fixtures taking place at 3pm this Saturday.

First place has changed hands three times since last Saturday, with Portsmouth knocking Leyton Orient off top spot, before Wycombe seized the chance to reach the summit in midweek.

Here are all the the Matchday 11 fixtures taking place in Sky Bet League 2 this weekend:

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

Wycombe are at home for the second game in succession, and the new league leaders come up against a Northampton Town side in good form.

The Chairboys have won two and drawn once in their last three, while the visiting Cobblers are unbeaten in four. They've recorded two victories and, most lately, two draws in that time.

Portsmouth surrendered top spot in a 2-1 defeat to Exeter in midweek, which happened to be their first defeat of the campaign. This time around, Pompey host Yeovil Town, who are currently outside the relegation places on goal difference only.

Exeter, meanwhile, face a trip to Wales and Newport County. The Exiles registered their first win of the season against Carlisle United a week ago, but were brought back down to earth with a 3-0 defeat to Crawley on Tuesday - a result which sealed manager Terry Butcher's fate - and he was replaced by John Sheridan on Friday morning.

High-flying Plymouth Argyle are up next for Crawley, and the Pilgrims could become the fourth side to top Sky Bet League 2 in eight days with victory at Home Park, providing other results go their way. 

Luton Town, who are in search of their fourth successive win, make the trek to Hartlepool United, while Stevenage, who have lost in each of their last three, play Carlisle.

Following a five-game winning run at the beginning of the season, Leyton Orient are now without victory in five, and welcome Notts County to the Matchroom Stadium.

Elsewhere, Accrington Stanley face Oxford United, AFC Wimbledon host Barnet, Dagenham & Redbridge play Mansfield Town and Morecambe clash with Bristol Rovers, while York City and Cambridge United meet at Bootham Crescent.
