Sky Bet League 2: Matchday 44 preview

22 April 2016

There's a full schedule of games in Sky Bet League 2 on Matchday 44 with matters to resolve at both ends of the table as the season reaches its climax.

Four teams are battling away for the two remaining automatic promotion places, with Accrington Stanley now best placed to clinch one of them.

They are currently second on 78 points and this weekend host York City, who will be relegated if they fail to win.

Here's a full list of the fixtures being played in Sky Bet League 2 on Matchday 44. All are 3pm kick-offs:

Saturday 23rd April 2016

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

Oxford United have slipped to third but will maintain their position if they pick up all three points against Hartlepool United, who haven't won in their last three games.

Plymouth Argyle and Bristol Rovers are fourth and fifth in the table respectively, separated by just one point. The Pilgrims are at home to already-relegated Dagenham & Redbridge while Rovers host Exeter City.

Portsmouth have slipped into the clutches of the chasing pack after losing their last two games, and they play one of the chasers, Wycombe Wanderers, on Saturday at Fratton Park. 

AFC Wimbledon remain in the final Play-Off place, four points clear of Wycombe, but face a tricky trip as they travel to Leyton Orient. 

Cambridge United stuck seven goals past Morecambe during the week to keep their hopes of a top-six finish alive - this weekend they are away to Notts County, who have lost their last two.

Champions Northampton Town are now unbeaten in 21 and travel to Huish Park to play winless in four Yeovil Town.
