Sky Bet League 2: Matchday 7 preview

11 September 2015

Sky Bet League 2 resumes for its seventh round of fixtures this weekend, with 12 games kicking-off simultaneously on Saturday.

Leyton Orient's perfect start to the season was finally brought to an end last time out when they lost to Exeter City, but there are still unbeaten records being defended by Wycombe Wanderers, Oxford United and Portsmouth heading into this weekend.

Here is the full schedule for Saturday's Sky Bet League 2 games (all games are 3pm kick-offs):

Saturday 12th September

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

Table-toppers Leyton Orient have the chance to bounce back from last week's defeat to Exeter with a trip to Cambridge United. The O's saw their five-game winning streak brought to a halt on the south coast, and visit the 13th-placed U's at R Costings Abbey Stadium.

There's also a clash between second and third in Sky Bet League 2, as undefeated Wycombe Wanderers host Plymouth Argyle at Adams Park in their first meeting since last season's Play-Off semi-final double header.

Luton Town finally posted their first victory of the season on Matchday 6, beating Cambridge 3-1, and they face a trip to an out-of-sorts Notts County in their bid for another three points.

Exeter, fresh off the back of their 4-0 triumph against Orient, are at home again, this time to Hartlepool United, while Bristol Rovers play Accrington Stanley and Mansfield Town face Crawley Town.

Elsewhere, York City go to Stevenage, winless Newport County host Morecambe at Rodney Parade, and Yeovil Town and AFC Wimbledon cross paths for the first time in history.
