Sky Bet League Two: New Year preview

30 December 2016

2017 kicks off with a bang with two full Sky Bet League Two schedules either side of the clock striking midnight.

Sky Bet League Two: Matchday 23

Three matches take place on Friday night, including away trips for Wycombe Wanderers, who are eight games unbeaten, and fourth-placed Portsmouth.

On Saturday, Cambridge United are bidding for a sixth straight away win when they go to Leyton Orient for an early kick-off, while Doncaster Rovers face Mansfield Town at 12:15pm looking to stay top of the division.

Should they slip up, then Plymouth Argyle can take advantage at home to Crawley Town, while Carlisle United are just two points further back and visit a Notts County side who have lost seven on the bounce.

Sky Bet League Two: Matchday 24

As we enter 2017, perhaps the most eye-catching match of the opening schedule is Portsmouth versus Luton Town. Both teams are going well in the table, but there is plenty of pressure coming from the chasing pack below.

At the opposite end, Accrington Stanley and Hartlepool have found points hard to come by, and they meet at the Wham! Stadium. Bottom side Newport County head to Wycombe, and fellow strugglers Cheltenham take on the improving Colchester United.
