Stevenage vs Crewe

Stevenage welcome Crewe as they look to bounce back from a crushing defeat to Newport County last time out. The Boro conceded a 98th minute equaliser at Rodney Parade to come away from South Wales empty-handed. That result left Stevenage in 7th position and they’ll be hoping to improve on that against fellow strugglers Crewe this weekend. Crewe head into this one just one in lowly 18th. Last time out Crewe gave up a one-goal lead to draw 1-1 at home with Bury. Stevenage are favourites for this one, priced at 19/20 with Bet365.

Recommended bet: Stevenage to win and both teams to score 11/4 with Ladbrokes – BET HERE

Oldham vs Port Vale

Mid-table Oldham welcome strugglers Port Vale to Manchester as they look to move closer to the top half. Oldham aren’t finding things easy in their first season in League Two following relegation, despite being tipped for a play-off spot at least this season. Last time out, Oldham beat Bradford 4-1 in the Checkatrade Trophy, but they were beaten 3-1 by Carlisle at home in their last league outing. Port Vale head to Oldham currently in 16th position and last time out they also picked up three points in the Checkatrade Trophy, beating Middlesbrough under-21s 2-0. Last time out in the league, Port Vale lost 6-2 to quick starters Lincoln City. Port Vale are clear winners to win this one with most bookmakers. Sky Bet have them at 10/11 to come out on top.

Crawley vs Newport County

Newport County head to Crawley as they look to continue their excellent start to the season. The Exiles are proving to be the surprise package in League Two this season, currently sitting in third place after 13 games, level on points with Exeter in second. Last time out, Newport beat Stevenage at home with a 98th minute winner. Crawley welcome the Welshman currently in 10th position, eyeing up the play-offs. The Red Devils are just two points outside the top seven and a 3-1 defeat to Colchester last time out didn’t help that statistic. Newport are the favourites to win here and they are 11/8 with Bet365.

Yeovil vs Tranmere

Tranmere Rovers head to the South West to face Yeovil Town as they look to continue their play-off charge. The White Army have transitioned perfectly back into League Two life following promotion last season. Tranmere sit fifth in League Two after beating Macclesfield 1-0 last time out. Yeovil, meanwhile, are struggling in the lower end of the table, currently occupying 15th position. Last time out, Yeovil lost to Bristol Rovers in the Checkatrade Trophy, but prior to that, the Glovers drew 2-2 at home to high flyers Exeter City. Yeovil are actually favourites to win this one at 7/5 with Bet365.

Grimsby vs Exeter City

Exeter City look to continue their excellent start to the season as they head to Grimsby. The Grecians are only four points behind leaders Lincoln City as things stand, but perhaps more importantly, they are three points ahead of MK Dons in fourth. Grimsby head into this one on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Doncaster in the Checkatrade Trophy, but last time out in the league, Grimsby beat Port Vale 2-0. That win offered them some hope, moving up to 21st in the league. Exeter City are unsurprisingly favourites to win this one at 6/5 with Ladbrokes.

Recommended bet: Exeter City -1 handicap at 3/1 with SkyBet – BET HERE

Morecambe vs Colchester

Strugglers Morecambe welcome play-off chasing Colchester United as they look to get their season up and running. Morecambe go into this one placed 17th after a 2-0 away win over Carlisle United. Colchester United, meanwhile, have enjoyed a successful season so far, climbing to sixth place. Last time out, the Essex club beat 10-man Crawley Town 3-1. Colchester are favourites to win at 11/10 with Bet365.

Recommended bet: Colchester to win and both teams to score at 10/3 with Betfair – BET HERE

Lincoln City vs Cambridge

Lincoln City look to continue their near-perfect start to the season as they welcome Cambridge United this weekend. Lincoln head into their latest home clash sat top of the table with a four-point gap over nearest challengers Exeter and Newport. Last time out, City continued their table-topping form with a 6-2 win over Port Vale. Cambridge head into this game in disastrous form, picking up just eight points from 13 games. The U’s are one point from safety in 23rd position. Cambridge lost 1-0 to high flyers MK Dons last time out. Lincoln are inevitable favourites in this one, priced at 1/2 with Bet365.

Recommended bet: Lincoln -2 handicap at 15/4 with Bet365 – BET HERE

MK Dons vs Northampton

MK Dons host Northampton Town as they look to close the gap on the top three. The Dons are currently in fourth place, just three points behind Newport and Exeter in third and second respectively. Last time out, MK Dons beat strugglers Cambridge United 1-0 thanks to a Chuks Aneke goal. Northampton head to Milton Keynes in lowly 19th. Last time out, however, they did manage a 2-1 win over Forest Green Rovers. MK Dons are favourites to win this one at 3/4 with Sky Bet.

Bury vs Notts County

Bury welcome Notts County as they look to take steps towards the play-offs following a decent start to the campaign. They currently sit in 9th, just two points from the top seven. Bury beat Leicester City under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy in their last outing. Last time out in the league, Bury drew with Crewe. Notts County have found things tough this season and they are just two points and positions above the drop. The Magpies lost against the ‘other’ Magpies under-21s, Newcastle, last time out in the Checkatrade Trophy. Prior to that, they beat fellow strugglers Macclesfield Town 1-0. Bury are favourites at 3/4 with Bet365.

Recommended bet: Bury -2 handicap at 5/1 with SkyBet – BET HERE

Forest Green vs Cheltenham

Play-off chasing Forest Green take on strugglers Cheltenham Town in Gloucestershire this weekend. Forest Green head into this weekend’s fixture placed in eighth, just one point outside the top seven and they will be hoping to climb into the play-off spots with a win. Last time out, Forest Green lost 2-1 to strugglers Northampton and that will have been seen as a disappointing result. Cheltenham head into this one all the way down in 22nd position, just a point above the drop zone. The Robins head to Forest Green on the back of a 3-0 defeat to MK Dons. The home side are favourites here at 7/10 with Bet365.

Macclesfield vs Carlisle

Macclesfield Town welcome Carlisle United as they look to secure their first win of the season after 13 games. The adjustment to League Two is proving difficult for the Silkmen who sit rock bottom and five points from safety. Last time out, Macclesfield lost 1-0 to fellow newly promoted club Tranmere Rovers. Carlisle head to Cheshire on the back of a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Morecambe. That’s a result that left United in 11th spot, four points outside the top seven. Carlisle are favourites here at 5/4 with Sky Bet.

Recommended bet: Carlisle -1 handicap at 3/1 with SkyBet – BET HERE

Swindon Town vs Mansfield

Two of League Two’s mid-table teams go head-to-head as Swindon Town welcome Mansfield to Wiltshire. Swindon have endured a below average season so far, occupying the 13th position, four points off the top seven. They will be looking to close that gap this weekend. Another team looking to close that gap is Mansfield. The Stags sit one position and one point below Swindon, but they do have two games in hand. Last time out in the league, Mansfield drew 2-2 with Bury, while Swindon lost 2-0 to high flyers Exeter. Mansfield are slight favourites at 11/8 with Sky Bet.
