Sky Bet League Two preview: 9 February

8 February 2019

There's a host of fantastic fixtures lined up in the Sky Bet League Two this weekend, with important games at both ends of the table.

Hunt for the Play-offs

Carlisle United and Exeter City are pushing their rivals all the way as we edge ever-closer to the end of the season in Sky Bet League Two.

The Cumbrians are currently fifth, while the Grecians lie seventh, and the sides meet at Brunton Park this weekend.

The visitors are unbeaten in their last three League Two encounters against the hosts.

League double on the cards for Forest Green Rovers?

It has been an incredible season for Forest Green Rovers, who currently find themselves in fourth position and hunting an automatic Play-Off spot.

League Two bottom club Notts County are the visitors at the weekend, and Rovers will be looking to complete a league double over their counterparts after running out 3-1 winners in September’s reverse fixture.

This will be only the second time that the Magpies will have visited the New Lawn, and they will be looking to make it two wins from two, having run out 2-1 victors last season.

Imps to see off resolute Cobblers?

Lincoln City are two points clear of second-placed Mansfield Town, as we move into the business end of the League Two season.

The league leaders entertain Northampton Town at Sincil Bank, looking to continue their 10-match unbeaten run at home in the league.

After their 2-1 win at Tranmere Rovers in midweek, the Cobblers are hoping for back-to-back away wins in the league for the first time since November 2017.

Bury to close the gap on Mansfield?

After dropping points at home to Crawley Town last weekend, January’s Manager of the Month, Ryan Lowe, will be wanting to get back to winning ways.

They head north to take on Morecambe at the Globe Arena, who are looking to continue their fight against relegation.

The Shakers are looking to make it 10 games unbeaten across all competitions, while the Shrimps have only lost one of their last six home league matches against this weekend’s opponents.

Around the grounds

Mansfield travel to Newport County, hoping for three points and a slip-up from Lincoln City.

MK Dons entertain Swindon Town at Stadium MK, having won five of their last six home league games against the Robins.

Stevenage travel to Prenton Park to face Tranmere Rovers; a win for Dino Maamria’s men could see them pull level on points with Exeter in the final Play-Off place in League Two, depending on results elsewhere.

Elsewhere, Play-Off chasing Colchester United host Cheltenham Town on the back of a 4-0 win last time out. Oldham Athletic, who are still without a permanent manager, travel to Crawley.

Grimsby Town head south to take on Yeovil Town - the Mariners are looking for their first-ever win at Huish Park in the EFL.

Finally, Cambridge United host Port Vale and there’s a Cheshire derby as Crewe Alexandra travel to Macclesfield Town.
