League Two Preview (MD17)

League Two Preview (MD17)

This week, new League Two leaders Lincoln travel to a mid-table Stockport side, who will be looking to upset the odds with a shock victory over the inform side. The Imps have scored 22 goals in their last ten games, with striker - and ex-Saddler - Jamie Forrester rising to the top of the scoring charts with an impressive 12 goals, including three hat-tricks. County will look to continue an impressive home record by repeating their 5-2 performance from their match against Wrexham, earlier in the season.

The Saddlers will go looking for three points against a strong and well organised Torquay side, who have somewhat underachieved under Ian Atkins. The Gulls will go to Bescot on the back of a 0-0 draw at Shrewsbury last weekend. The Reds will be looking to stop the Devonshire side from being the first team to score at Bescot in League Two for over ten years. Darren Wrack is set for a starting place after playing against Chippenham Town in a mid-season friendly, during the last week.

Another match to look out for this week is Paul Ince`s first away match as a manager, with his Macclesfield side travelling to Wrexham, who have only lost two in eight games at home this season. The Silkmen will need to be at their best if they are to claim their first win of the season and climb off the bottom of the table.

Forthcoming fixtures for match day 17 are:

Friday 3rd November
Darlington v Chester

(Match is a 7:45pm KO)

Saturday, 04 November
Boston Utd v Notts County
Bristol Rovers v Mansfield
Grimsby v Milton Keynes Dons
Hartlepool v Barnet
Peterborough v Accrington Stanley
Rochdale v Bury
Shrewsbury v Wycombe
Stockport v Lincoln City
Swindon v Hereford
Walsall v Torquay
Wrexham v Macclesfield

(All matches a 3pm KO)
