Sky Blues? Chairboys? Magpies? Grecians? League 2 Hots Up

Sky Blues? Chairboys? Magpies? Grecians? League 2 Hots Up

Despite their midweek defeat at the hands of Wycombe Wanderers, Luton Town still maintain a healthy eight-point advantage at the top of the League Two table.

Underneath the Hatters, however, the battle for the other two promotion spots is a contest in which the entire top-half of the table will still feel that they have a stake in.

Wycombe's Kenilworth Road triumph pushed them into second place but the distance between themselves and Crawley in 12th is just nine points.

As the Sky Blues have seen themselves in recent weeks, one win can see you jump into the promotion places and a single defeat can leave you outside the play-off spots.

While City head for struggling Forest Green Rovers on Saturday, Exeter (one point and one place above City in the table) will look to emulate Wycombe's win at Luton.

A full house at Meadow Lane, where all tickets have been priced at £2, will expect Notts County to see off Crewe Alexandra and just along the road Mansfield are clear favourites to down rock-bottom Barnet.

But the nature of the division is that the only predictable aspect is its unpredictability and the Sky Blues have found themselves on the wrong end of some surprise defeats so far this season, the home game against Forest Green being an obvious example.
