The latest midweek round of fixtures in Sky Bet League 2 take place on Tuesday evening with all 24 sides looking for three valuable points to take into the weekend. The heart of the table remains quite tight but either end of it is starting to get stretched so it will be interesting to see how these matches play out.
Tuesday’s fixtures are as follows:
Accrington Stanley v Wycombe Wanderers
Cheltenham Town v Cambridge United
Chesterfield v Forest Green Rovers
Colchester United v Lincoln City
Crawley Town v Exeter City
Grimsby Town v Swindon Town
Luton Town v Carlisle United
Morecambe v Crewe Alexandra
Newport County v Barnet
Port Vale v Mansfield Town
Stevenage v Coventry City
Yeovil Town v Notts County
The two form sides in the division meet on Tuesday night when Luton host Carlisle at Kenilworth Road while the leaders Notts County will be looking to repel a charging Hatters when they head to Yeovil Town. Accrington in third host Wycombe in sixth in what is another big match in the division. Exeter in fourth make the journey to Crawley while Swindon in fifth head to Grimsby.
Best of the Rest
Improving Port Vale host the pre-season title favourites Mansfield while Colchester United host Lincoln with both sides having their eye on promotion. Two more teams with eyes on going up are Stevenage and Coventry and they meet at the Lamex. Cambridge head to Cheltenham looking to bounce back after their 7-0 mauling at Luton on Saturday.
After picking up a winner on Saturday and with another round of matches to come this Saturday I’m taking just two in the division on Tuesday night. My winner on Saturday involved taking on Crewe and given that they agonisingly lost so late to Forest Green I’m going to take them on again. Morecambe have shown signs of improvement of late and it is never an easy place to go at the best of times let alone on a Tuesday night. I think they have the beating of a Crewe side who are now seven straight defeats on the road.
Swindon have a wonderful record away from home this season. They have won at Luton, Mansfield and Carlisle among others and of their two road defeats one was at the leaders Notts County. The Robins now head to Grimsby to take on a Mariners side who have not scored a goal at Blundell Park in their last four outings. David Flitcroft sides generally get going around this time of year and there are signs Swindon are doing just that. I’ll take them in this one.
