League Two Round-Up: 26/01/2019

Port Vale vs Carlisle United

Neil Aspin will be preparing his side for a tough game this weekend when Carlisle United arrive at Vale Park for matchday 30 in League Two. Vale have had little to cheer about this season as their efforts have earned them a spot down in 18th where they have taken eight wins, eight draws and 12 losses from their allotted games. The hosts took on Bristol Rovers in the EFL Trophy in their last match and suffered a 3-0 defeat. Carlisle are in much better form this season and currently sit up in fourth place. Over the last eight games, they have secured seven wins and lost just once. SkyBet has the hosts priced at 7/4 and Carlisle sit with odds of 6/4.

Grimsby Town vs MK Dons

Paul Tisdale will be expecting his side to pick up three points against Grimsby Town this Saturday as his side looks to push for an automatic promotion spot. The Mariners are in need of three points as their last win came six games ago and following their recent loss to Forest Green have picked up five consecutive defeats. MK Dons are having a much more successful season with them currently sitting up in fifth, but find themselves in a run of bad form which has seen them pick up back-to-back losses. The hosts are huge underdogs for this fixture with odds of 16/5 with Betway, while the Dons sit at 17/20 with SkyBet.

With two wins in their last three, the Robins find themselves up in eleventh place. Gabriele Cioffi finds his side falling down the table due to their recent poor form which has seen them secure just two wins from their last nine matches.

Stevenage vs Forest Green Rovers

One League Two game that should provide 90 minutes of entertainment will be held at the New Lawn Stadium as Forest Green Rovers takes on Stevenage. Stevenage sit in ninth place currently where they trail their upcoming opponents by three points making this a huge game for either side. United arrive in good form with them securing six points in their last two matches against Crawley Town and Morecambe. Dropping three points in this fixture would see their opponents draw level in the table so Mark Cooper will be desperate not to lose. Rovers put an end to their winless run with a 3-0 win over Grimsby Town. Betway has the hosts priced at 13/5 and their opponents at 1/1.

Mansfield Town vs Tranmere Rovers

David Flitcroft will be aiming to secure another three points this weekend against Tranmere Rovers as they look to continue their chase on Bury and Lincoln who sit above them. The hosts sit up in third place and remain in a good position to secure an automatic promotion spot. Following their 3-2 win over Colchester United, Mansfield have now won back-to-back games and look in good shape to secure another three points. Rovers have lost just one of their last five games showing their defensive strength and they will need another strong performance to see off Mansfield Town.
