Preview: Sky Bet League One & League Two

15 November 2019

The International break moves the spotlight to Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two this weekend with 15 fixtures to whet your appetite...

League One NEW.png

With League leaders Ipswich Town not in action this weekend, second placed Wycombe Wanderers have the opportunity to return to the summit in League One against Tranmere Rovers.

Gareth Ainsworth's side trip to Prenton Park will only be 13th meeting between the sides, however in those first 12 there has been a winner on 11 occasions. That run includes Wycombe coming away from Tranmere victorious in two of the last three encounters. For the home side, Rushian Hepburn-Murphy has scored three goals in three starts, as Tranmere look to improve on their inconsistent home form.

Occupying the last Play-Off place as things stand, Coventry City host Rochdale this weekend on a bit of a barren run against Dale. They have failed to score in four of their last six league encounters, suffering defeats in three of those fixtures.

However, Rochdale have lost their last three League One fixtures and face a tough task of turning around their current form against Mark Robins' side.

Blackpool have only lost one of their last eight fixtures in League One, although four of those have been draws. Combining the Seasiders' consistency, with the fact that no team have won fewer points or lost more games away from home than AFC Wimbledon, form would point to a home victory.

Elsewhere, Accrington Stanley make the trip to Yorkshire to face Rotherham United, Bolton Wanderers host MK Dons in a battle between 23rd and 21st, whilst Gillingham welcome Lincoln City. 

League Two NEW.png

Two of the form teams in Sky Bet League Two meet this weekend, as Salford City host Swindon Town in what will be their first-ever EFL meeting.

Swindon will be aiming to win four consecutive League victories for the first time since March 2016, whilst League Two top scorer Eoin Doyle has twice as many League goals than anybody else this campaign. However, Salford come into this one with just one loss in their previous six.

League leaders Forest Green Rovers are in action against Plymouth Argyle in another first-meeting between the pair in the EFL. 

Rovers have lost just one of their previous 10 League games, whilst Plymouth will be looking to respond to their heavy defeat last time out to local rivals Exeter City.

A battle between 5th and 6th place at St James Park pits Exeter against Cheltenham Town. Riding the wave of their victory against Plymouth, the home side have also impressed defensively, keeping back-to-back clean sheets.

Consistency in defence is something Cheltenham can equally lay claim to, only conceding 14 goals across their 15 League games so far, a record they have only previously bettered once.

Elsewhere, Crawley Town host Morecambe in a fixture between two teams needing points at the rear of the table, whilst Carlisle United travel to Port Vale and Leyton Orient welcome Scunthorpe United.
