Foggy weather put paid to Forest Green’s chances of extending their league at the top of the 2021/22 League Two table on Tuesday night.
Will things look clearer for the leaders at the summit as they host improving Carlisle Utd this weekend?
We’re here with our next set of League Two predictions…

With a healthy buffer back to their nearest rivals, it’s probably a case of taking things game-by-game for Forest Green in their quest for League One football, avoiding unnecessary slip-ups on what has so far been a procession towards promotion.
Recovering Carlisle Utd could throw up a potential banana skin in that bid this weekend.
The Cumbrians still aren’t quite out the woods yet in their battle for safety, but a surprise victory in leafy Gloucestershire would surely give Keith Millen’s men enough breathing space to start plotting another campaign in the fourth tier next season.
Having flirted with the relegation zone as recently as early December, Utd could move a hefty 11 points clear of trouble come the final whistle on Saturday afternoon.
Sutton Utd are once again making a mockery of their status as EFL first-timers having moved up to third following a 3-2 thriller with Colchester Utd in midweek.
While a 20/1 price in the League Two outright betting is indicative of the nine-point deficit they have to eat into to catch Forest Green, it’s only the two teams directly above them who can really match them for consistency of late.
The Us will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to 2022 at home to a Northampton Town side they managed to at least temporarily leapfrog in the automatic promotion fight with that Tuesday night win.
It’s increasingly looking like it’s two from three in the bunfight to avoid relegation to the National League, with Stevenage and Barrow easing away from immediate trouble with a couple of battling performances over the last month.
Therefore, it’s the form of Colchester Utd that will be giving the two sides currently sat in the danger zone hope all is not lost heading towards the business end of the campaign.
It was late heartbreak for Hayden Mullins on Tuesday night as he witnessed his side surrender a handy point away at Sutton.
A last-gasp winner from the hosts condemned the Essex outfit to a fifth league defeat in a row, form that has now cost Mullins his job.
Wayne Brown takes temporary charge this weekend as they look to turn the tide at a Salford City side seeking a late play-off charge.
However, Col U could be saved simply by process of elimination this term.
Scunthorpe Utd and Oldham Athletic are still struggling to hit on any sort of form to suggest they can climb out of trouble.
The Iron host play-off chasing Newport County this Saturday, while the Latics will be looking to benefit from the current mid-season collapse by Harrogate as they travel to North Yorkshire
