Cambridge vs MK Dons

Cambridge will look to end their recent miserable run when they host Paul Tisdale’s improving MK Dons this weekend. Cambridge are sat 23rd in the table, having lost five of their last six matches including their 2-0 defeat to Crawley last time out. Their opponents appear to be building some momentum under Tisdale, having won each of their last two games, going unbeaten in four in total. As such, they are favourites heading into this one with Bet365 pricing them at 5/4, while Cambridge can be backed at 23/10 with SkyBet.

Carlisle vs Morecambe

Carlisle will be looking to end a poor streak of form at home when they face strugglers Morecambe this Saturday. Carlisle have lost each of their last three games in a row at home in League Two, going down to both Tranmere, Stevenage and Grimsby. They should feel confident of doing so against a Morecambe team that currently sits 20th and has won just three of their 12 games so far this term, taking a point from their previous two games. Carlisle are best-priced to win at 5/6 with Bet365, while Morecambe are 15/4 with the same bookmaker to take three points.

Recommended bet: Carlisle win and both teams to score at 11/4 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Colchester vs Crawley

After such a strong start to the League Two season, Colchester will be looking to get back on track this weekend after winning just one of their last four games. Such form has seen them drop out of the play-off places, with the team losing 3-1 away to Stevenage last time out. As for Crawley, they have been prolific at home but have struggled on the road, losing four of their last five games. Colchester are fancied at 8/11 with Betfair, while Crawley can be backed at 4/1 with Bet365.

Recommended bet: Ollie Palmer to score anytime at 12/5 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Crewe vs Bury

Struggling Crewe will welcome Bury to the Alexandra Stadium as both sides look to secure an important three points. Crewe have been in poor form, winning just one of their last five matches which places them 18th in the League Two table. As for Bury, they have lost just one of their previous seven and will be buoyed by the fact they have taken seven points from their last three matches on the road. As such, Bury are favourites at 21/20 with Ladbrokes, with Crewe being the outsiders at 14/5 with SkyBet.

Recommended bet: Bury win at 21/20 with Ladbrokes – BET HERE

Exeter vs Swindon

Currently breathing down the necks of leaders Lincoln City, Exeter will be looking to continue their recent strong form against Swindon. Winning four of their last six games, drawing the other two and on a three-match win streak at home, the Grecians look in very good condition coming into this one. Swindon meanwhile have had a real drop off, having won just two of their last nine outings in League Two, seeing them drop to 13th. Exeter look a good price to win here at 21/20 with Coral, while Swindon are the underdogs at 5/2 with Paddy Power.

Recommended bet: Exeter win at 21/20 with Coral – BET HERE

Newport County vs Stevenage

Third meets fifth at Rodney Parade this weekend in one of the standout games in this round of League Two fixtures. Newport have taken eight points from their last four matches in League Two, but have suffered back-to-back draws against both Macclesfield and Forest Green. Stevenage have been in great form in the league, winning four of their last six and have lost just the one game during that time, though they were embarrassed with an 8-0 loss to Charlton in the Checkatrade Trophy in midweek.

Recommended bet: 2-2 draw at 14/1 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Port Vale vs Lincoln

Finally, league leaders Lincoln City travel to 16th-placed Port Vale on Saturday afternoon as they look to extend their lead at the top of the League Two table. Port Vale have taken just a point from their last three matches in the fourth tier, having suffered a damaging 2-0 loss away to Grimsby last time out. As for Lincoln, they have been relentless this season, winning nine of their 12 games in League Two so far, form which was improved with a 1-0 victory at home to Crewe last time out. Lincoln are best-priced to win at 6/5 with Betway, with Port Vale available to be backed at 14/5 with Bet365.

Recommended bet: John Akinde to score first and Lincoln to win at 6/1 with Bet365 – BET HERE
