League Two Preview: Saturday 13th February 2016

There are quite a few stand out games this coming week. From Saturdays fixtures I've chosen three from the top end of League Two Leyton Orient at home to Northampton, Plymouth against Mansfield and Portsmouth versus Bristol Rovers.

Then on Tuesday Oxford United host Northampton.

I've also picked out three games on Saturday featuring teams playing catch up Accrington, Carlisle and Hartlepool have all played only 26 games. They also play on Tuesday.

Notts have only played 27 games and still have an outside chance of making the playoffs so I've made both their Saturday and Tuesday fixtures my key games.

*Important Game ** Key Game

Saturday 6th February 2016

*Newport v Carlisle – Kick Off 1:00pm – Score Prediction (1-2)
*Accrington v Crawley – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (2-0)
Wimbledon v Luton – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (2-1)
Dagenham & Redbridge v Barnet – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (1-0)
*Hartlepool v Yeovi l– Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (1-0)
*Leyton Orient v Northampton – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (1-1)
Morecambe v Oxford United – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (1-3)
*Plymouth v Mansfield – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (2-0)
*Portsmouth v Bristol Rovers – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (2-2)
Stevenage v Cambridge – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (0-2)
Wycombe v Exeter – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (2-0)
**York v Notts County – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (0-2)

Leyton Orient are at 7th and on 46 points, will be hoping to recover from their last game when they lost 0-1 at home to fellow play off hopefuls Portsmouth. Their opponents on Saturday are runaway leaders Northampton who have 61 points.

Second placed Plymouth have 56 points and also lost their last league game at home 0-1 to Wycombe, entertain 4th placed Mansfield on 48 points who drew 2-2 midweek against 3rd placed Oxford.

Portsmouth are 8th and have 45 points, will want to return to winning ways as will their opponents Bristol Rovers who are 5th place on 47 points.

Newport are relatively safe at 20th with 27 points and they host 12th placed Carlisle playing only their 27th game and hoping to add to their 42 points.

Accrington are at 9th and on 45 points, could climb into the play off places if they beat 15th placed Crawley who have 37 points on Saturday.

Hartlepool in 22nd place will hope to see their games in hand lift them up the table starting against 21st placed Yeovil.

Tuesday 16th February 2016

*Accrington v Carlisle – Kick Off 7:45pm – Score Prediction (1-0)
**Hartlepool v Notts County – Kick Off 7:45pm – Score Prediction (0-1)
*Oxford United v Northampton – Kick Off 7:45pm – Score Prediction (1-2)
York v Exeter – Kick Off 7:45pm – Score Prediction (0-2)

Accrington against Carlisle on Tuesday depending on results could become a very important game.

Oxford 3rd and 1st placed Northampton play each other on Tuesday night.

My thoughts on Notts v York & Hartlepool

On Saturday Notts visit bottom club York who were beaten 1-0 at Meadow Lane back in September.

On Tuesday Notts are again away this time at lowly Hartlepool who Notts should have played last Saturday.

At the moment Notts are 10 points away from a playoff place but must make the games in hand count.

I hope I'm correct with my forecast and 2 wins sees Notts climb up the table.
