League 2: Matchday 16

League 2: Matchday 16

League Two this week offers an action packed weekend. There are top of the table clashes, bottom of the table clashes, games for new managers, so expect a good weekends worth of football.

Free-scoring Lincoln find themselves going to the County Ground to play a recently unsettled Swindon side after the departure of their managing duo of Wise and Poyet to Leeds, earlier this week. So, keep your eyes on this game as it will provide answers for Walsall fans as to who is the main threat in the League Two title race.

Walsall face a tough home clash with MK Dons, who currently lie in sixth place. Expect goals in this match, as Martin Allen sides like to attack despite being away from home. The Saddlers will have Darren Wrack and Alex Nicholls available for this one, which will be good news to the ears of Richard Money, after recent injuries and suspensions to key players, such as Martin Butler.

The other big game this weekend is Macclesfield, who appointed Paul Ince as their manager this week, against Mansfield, who are looking to extent their unbeaten run after beating Wrexham 3-0 last week. This will mark Paul Ince`s debut in the managerial scene, so all eyes (not just from the media and Wolves fans) will be on Moss Rose come 3pm tomorrow.
