Ups and downs: Final day League Two permutations

4 May 2018

The race for automatic promotion has already been run in League Two, but five Play-Off contenders must be whittled down to four while there is the chance of a last-gasp survival at the bottom. Read up on all the permutations for matchday 46 here…


Accrington Stanley, Luton Town and Wycombe Wanderers have already sealed first, second and third respectively ahead of the final day of the season. 


Exeter City, Notts County, Coventry City and Lincoln City currently hold the four play-off places. The former pair are guaranteed a spot, while the latter two have to fend off Mansfield Town, in eighth.

Coventry are at home to Morecambe, and Lincoln host Yeovil Town. Both have to lose for Mansfield to have a chance – and the Stags must win.

Due to the current goal difference and goals scored situation, victory for Mansfield at home to Crawley Town combined with a loss for either Coventry and Lincoln would move the Stags into sixth.

If that scenario occurs, but both Coventry and Lincoln lose, the Sky Blues currently boast a one-goal advantage over the Imps. Therefore, Lincoln would need to lose by a smaller margin to grab seventh spot.

Should goal difference and goals scored match by the close of play, Lincoln would qualify for the play-offs due to a superior head-to-head record this season.


Barnet have once again given themselves a shot at survival, but they need to beat the already-relegated Chesterfield at home to remain in the EFL.

If Barnet win and Morecambe lose at Coventry, the Bees survive. Should Morecambe get a point at Coventry, Barnet would need to put seven past the Spireites to stay up on goal difference.
