Midweek draws for Forest Green and Harrogate means it’s pretty much as you were at the top of the 2021/22 League Two, but Swindon fans could have plenty of excuses for feeling excited this weekend with the Robins perched in third after Tuesday’s action.
Can they close the gap on leaders Forest Green this weekend?
We’re here with our next set of League Two predictions…
EFL League Two Predictions | Weekend Games
Clem Morfuni, few Swindon fans would have expected their club to in with a chance of an instant return to League One at the start of this season.
However, the appointment of Ben Garner and some smart late recruitment have quickly seen any fears of an expected relegation fight recede.
Town are instead looking down on most of the division after propelling themselves into the automatic promotion spots with three wins in four and could fancy their chances of pulling off another big win against a Bradford City side struggling for consistency under Derek Adams.
Leaders Forest Green will be striving to keep their West Country rivals at an arm’s length as they welcome Salford City to the New Lawn. The visiting Ammies started the campaign as one of the favourites in the League Two outright betting but have drifted out to 16/1 after picking up just four wins from their opening 13 games.
One bright spot for Gary Bowyer is the fact he has made his Salford side tough to beat in recent league outings, slipping to just one defeat in their last five. A win in Gloucestershire could be a sign his side are upwardly mobile in their bid to play catch-up with the pacesetters.
An early promotion six-pointer could also be on the cards at Prenton Park. Both Tranmere Rovers and Northampton look to have the resilience required to secure a top-seven berth as they trade blows in Birkenhead, with the hosts out to preserve their six-game unbeaten run.
Scunthorpe Utd finally managed to stem the bleeding in their battle to avoid a spell in the National League next season with a battling point away at Barrow.
However, the Iron will be rueing the late Robbie Gotts equaliser that quashed their hopes of only a second league win of the campaign.
Neil Cox will be hoping his charges can bring some of that fighting spirit from Holker Street to their home clash with Crawley, who already look destined for yet another mid-table finish as they blow hot and cold from one game to the next.
Finally, while we still wait for some white smoke to emerge from Carlisle in their new manager search, Gavin Skelton will lead out the Cumbrians for a third successive game as they travel to fellow strugglers Oldham Athletic.
The caretaker boss could bring some much-needed joy to Brunton Park if he can steer the hosts to just a second home league win of the season.
Better Odds Mean Bigger Winnings.
