League Two Round-Up: Weekend Saturday 30/1/2016

Well, what a pleasure it is that, after last week’s awful performance, I am now commenting on a second consecutive away win for Notts under Jamie Fullarton’s leadership. Also this time by all accounts it was a thoroughly deserved win.

Here are the League Two results for the weekend:

Saturday 30th January 2016

Accrington 1–0 Bristol Rovers
Wimbledon 2–3 Yeovil
Crawley 0–1 Mansfield
Dagenham & Redbridge P–P Carlisle
Hartlepool 0–2 Exeter
Leyton Orient 1–3 Cambridge
Luton 0–2 Notts County
Morecambe 1–2 Newport
Plymouth 0–1 Wycombe
York 2–1 Stevenage

Today there were 2 home wins, 7 away wins, 0 draws and 1 postponement.

League Two Update

Northampton had no game but remain top of League Two with 58 points from 27 games.

Plymouth could have gone top due to Northampton's inactivity but lost at home 0–1 to Wycombe and stay in 2nd place with 56 points from 29 games. Wycombe move up to 8th on 43 points from 27 games.

Oxford lost 3–0 at home to Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup but remain 3rd with 51 points from 27 games.

Bristol Rover stay 4th on 47 points from 29 games despite losing 1–0 away at Accrington who move up to 5thwith 45 points and still have games in hand, having played only 25.

Portsmouth put in a very plucky performance in the FA Cup losing 2–1 at home to Premiership side Bournemouth but drop to 6th with 44 points from 26 games.

Mansfield's 1–0 win away at Crawley lifts them into the final play off place at 7th with 44 points from 29 games, with Crawley dropping to 17th on 34 points from 29 games.

There are no positional changes below Crawley at the basement end of the League Two table with York, although beating Stevenage 2–1 remain 24th and bottom with 20 points from 27 games.

Notts County win leapfrogs them over Morecambe, Luton and Crawley and up 3 places to 14th with 36 points from 27 games.

The gap between 6th and 7th placed Portsmouth and Mansfield, who are both on 44 points and 14th placed Notts County with 36 points is now down to 8 points. 

Portsmouth have played a game less than Notts County but Mansfield have played 2 more.

Notts County's cushion from the bottom end has increased to 16 points.
Upcoming fixtures

League Two – Tuesday 2nd February 2016

Luton v Yeovil
Morecambe v Portsmouth

Notts' next game is at home on Saturday 6th February 2016 against Hartlepool United with a 3:00pm kick off.

Hartlepool at 21st are 7 places and 12 points worse off than Notts and will host Notts in the return League Two fixture on Tuesday 16th February 2016.

The sacking of Ricardo Moniz and surprise appointment of Jamie Fullarton has created concern, unrest and to a degree a split amongst the Notts faithful. A win with a good performance will go a considerable way to restoring Notts fans belief and hopes for the future. 

This season could still turn out to be memorable for the right reasons.
