7 March 2019

There are some huge games in Sky Bet League Two this weekend! Here's what's coming up...

LINCOLN TO EXTEND LEAD AT THE TOP?

Danny Cowley’s side have been relentless this season losing only four games out of the 35 fixtures they have played so far in Sky Bet League Two.

The Imps entertain Yeovil Town on Friday night looking to record their first-ever EFL double over the Glovers.

Darren Way’s side have won back-to-back league games in the lead up to this win, and could make it three on the bounce for the first time since the opening months of this season.

BURY TO KEEP THE PRESSURE ON?

Hot on Lincoln’s tail are Ryan Lowe’s Bury, the Shakers have won four of their last five League Two fixtures which has seen Lowe nominated for February’s Manager of the Month.

Stevenage will be the team looking to spoil their, near perfect, run in the league, and if they pick up three points, it will be their first league win over Bury since May 2012.

Bury’s Jay O’Shea clearly enjoys playing against the Boro, having been directly involved in four in three EFL starts, scoring three and assisting once

STAGS TO SEE OF VALIANTS?

Mansfield Town currently occupy the last automatic promotion place, and will be looking to strengthen their hold on it with a win over struggling Port Vale.

The Valiants are winless in their last three EFL games against Mansfield, with the Stags winning 4-0 in this exact fixture last time out.

Mansfield boss David Flitcroft has only lost one of his seven previous managerial meetings with Port Vale.
