League Two Preview

League Two Preview

This week in League Two: Walsall travel to Bristol Rovers, Swindon are at Notts County, while the game of the day being at Adams Park, where Wycombe entertain an in-form Lincoln City side.

First of all, we will look at the mighty Saddlers who will go to the Memorial Ground full of confidence, despite losing to Bolton in the Carling Cup on Tuesday. Alex Nicholls is back in action, after he made his return for the reserves at West Brom on Wednesday. Martin Butler will also be looking to score the goals to get the points in a bid to rise to the top of the league with his club and with his goals. Make any sense? Didn`t think so. He currently has six goals to his name (or seven this season) in the league and could rise to the top of the goal scoring charts. The game will be played on a ground where one of the greatest ever Walsall games was played. The score ended up 4-3 (after being 3-2 down at half-time) in the 98/99 promotion season, and hopefully, this will be a good omen for tomorrow`s game.

The massive game of the weekend is the clash of the league two titans, Wycombe and Lincoln. Wycombe`s midweek win at Fulham in the Carling Cup was a confidence booster, in what could be a very good season for Wanderers. Lincoln will be looking for a much needed win to put themselves back in the title race, after their 3-2 home defeat to MK Dons. This match will either be a tight affair, a boring or exciting draw, or the most open game anyone has ever seen. My prediction is a home win, but a close one.

Other fixtures this weekend includes a trip to Lincolnshire for Rochdale to play Boston, while Bury play Barnet. Grimsby face Stockport, Macclesfield play Torquay, Mansfield host Accrington Stanley, MK Dons face Chester, and Notts County play Swindon. The Posh people, or Peterborough, have the pleasure of playing lowly Hartlepool, while Darlington face a tough trip to Shrewsbury. Should be a good weekend then!
