LEAGUE TWO PREDICTIONS

COVENTRY CITY vs ACCRINGTON STANLEY

Two team that harbour automatic promotion hopes meet at the Ricoh with just five points separating them in the league. Accrington will be hoping to continue their decent run that has seen them lose only once in the last five games. Their away form is not so great having lost three of the last five outings.

Coventry need to keep the home form going and have won the last five at the Ricoh but have only won once in the last five on the road which is where they have struggled. I think the home advantage will make the difference in this one.

Prediction home win

 

CREWE ALEXANDRA vs YEOVIL

Big relegation battle and one that Crewe need to win more than their opponents. They have been in poor form having lost the last four but they have won two of the last five at Gresty Road which should give them hope coming into this one. They have lacked consistency all season and have not drawn a game since the opening two fixtures of the season. The Alex defence is particularly concerning having conceded 12 goals in the last four games.

Yeovil did a lot of business in the loan market during the transfer window and have improved slowly, winning the last two games, scoring five and not conceding. The Glovers away form is not great reading and they lay 22nd in the away form table which could be a decisive factor.

Prediction home win

 

EXETER CITY vs WYCOMBE WANDERERS

Exeter will need to utilise their brilliant home form if they are to beat a Wycombe side that are on a roll at the moment. The Chairboys have the third best away form in League Two while Exeter have the third best home form so it will be an intriguing encounter.

Wycombe score plenty of goals with only Luton outscoring them in the division but their defence is the leakiest in the top half of the table. Exeter haven’t lost at home since October when Port Vale grabbed all three points from St James park but I have an inkling that Wycombe will take the points in this one.

Prediction away win

 

STEVENAGE vs LUTON TOWN

If ever a defeat needed revenging then it is the humiliating 7-1 reverse that Boro were handed out at Kenilworth Road when the two last met. Luton have shown a vulnerable side of late but have a brilliant and most importantly deep squad that should see them through the run in. The Hatters are easily the top scorers in the division and have a squad that would be the envy of many in League One but they will still need to show they can do a professional job in this derby.

Three defeats in the last 15 games is a decent record for the hatters but those defeats have all come in the last seven games. Stevenage are not doing badly at home having only lost once there in the last five games but overall three wins in 17 games is a poor record for a side that harboured play-off ambitions at the start of the season. Whether Stevenage have done enough in the transfer window to have a late push remains to be seen.

Prediction away win

 

MORECAMBE vs CHESTERFIELD

What a huge game this one could turn out to be for both sides. Chesterfield need to get on a good run if they are to pull away from a relegation fight that is increasingly looking like it will be between the bottom five teams in League Two. Morecambe face some tough challenges off the field but on it they have an ability to fight and pick up important results when needed. They have lost just twice in the last seven games but still find themselves deep in the mire.

Chesterfield were very busy in January and will need to get the new players bedded in quickly if they are to start playing like a team with belief. A bitter blow came with defeat at home to both Crawley and Stevenage in the last two but they did win in their last away game at Yeovil. That away win was a rarity as the Spireites have the worst away form in the entire division having won just two of their 15 games on the road.
