Sky Bet League Two: Matchday 29 preview

3 February 2017

All 24 teams get under way at 3pm this Saturday in what promises to be another fine weekend of Sky Bet League Two action.

At the top, Doncaster Rovers are going for a sixth consecutive win when they welcome Morecambe to the Keepmoat. Meanwhile, closest chasers Plymouth Argyle travel to Cambridge United.

Third-placed Carlisle United are without a win in five and travel to struggling Leyton Orient, while the battle for Play-Off positions continues to heat up.

Exeter City, Luton Town and Portsmouth all sit tied on 45 points, with Wycombe Wanderers just behind on 43. This weekend, Exeter host Crewe Alexandra, the Hatters go to Grimsby Town and Gareth Ainsworth's Chairboys take on Pompey at Adams Park.

Five facts

1. Cheltenham and Newport have met just five times in the past – they’ve won a seldom match each having played out three draws, including the 2-2 earlier this season.

2. It’s the 20th league meeting between Crawley and Stevenage this weekend, with Boro winning 10 to Crawley’s six so far. The other three have been drawn.

3. Exeter City currently sit on six straight league wins – the first time they’ve achieved the feat since 1977. Their form since mid-November has seen them climb from bottom to fourth.

4. Grimsby lost Omar Bogle on Deadline Day, whose 19 league strikes and five assists this season account for more than half of the Mariners' goals – they've scored 35.

5. Wycombe and Plymouth can’t be separated, both claiming seven league wins each against each other, and nine in all competitions. Excluding Play-Off fixtures, the home side in this encounter has not won since 2004 in the league.

The #DeadlineDay arrival believes that a play-off position is the aim for the side between now and the end of the 2016/17 campaign.
