League Two Preview

League Two Preview

Last week was a good weekend for League Two football; if you are a Walsall fan. Even though Lincoln beat Wycombe, their midweek loss at Boston reassured top-spot was occupied by the Saddlers going into this weekends fixtures. However, it should be as intense; in fact, it probably will be for the rest of the season.

The game of the week will be at Plainmoor, where Torquay host Notts County, who are 7th and 6th respectively. The Gulls will want to return to winning ways after their 3-2 loss at MK Dons, with Notts County looking to extend their unbeaten run to seven games. This lays the path for an exciting encounter.

Walsall will play host to Mansfield, which will be a tribute to the late Matt Gadsby, who played for both clubs in his short career. However, this will not take away the passion and desire from both teams, as the Saddlers will want to extend their lead at the top of the table, with Mansfield aiming to knock Money`s Men off cloud 9. This will be a game to watch.

The rest of the fixtures include:

Accrington Stanley v Wycombe
Barnet v Milton Keynes Dons
Chester v Bristol Rovers
Hartlepool v Wrexham
Hereford v Macclesfield
Lincoln City v Bury
Rochdale v Shrewsbury
Stockport v Peterborough
Swindon v Boston Utd
