Top Teams In League Two

Four teams will escape League Two next summer.

These four sides are the current pacesetters and favourites to gain promotion:

  • Newport – The Welsh side have hit their stride early this season and look good for a jump up to League 1. The last time Newport County were in the third tier was in 1987.
  • Cheltenham – Cheltenham lost in last year’s play-off semi-finals and will be looking to go one, or two, better this season. Matty Blair is their marquee signing and “The Robins” have made a fast start this season.
  • Carlisle – Carlisle have been a top-half team for the last few seasons, with last year’s 18th finish a minor blip. They are scoring for fun this campaign and look like genuine contenders. 
  • Forest Green – “Rovers” finished 10th last season and will be eyeing up a playoff spot as a minimum this season. They’ve tightened up their defence and are winning games that they would have lost twelve months ago.

Top Goalscorer Contenders In League Two

Eoin Doyle became the first Irishman to scoop the League Two golden boot last season netting 25 for Swindon Town. Port Vale’s Tom Pope still holds the record in the division for 31 in the 2012-13 season but there are a few contenders looking to break that this season:

  • Paul Mullin – The 26-year-old is rattling them in for Cambridge United and is a clear favourite for this season’s award. With only four from the penalty spot the Englishman is lighting up the division.
  • Danny Johnson – Johnson is already well into double figures for Leyton Orient and looks a constant threat.
  • Ryan Bowman – Bowman – along with Matt Jay – are the firepower in the Exeter attack. Bowman netted 14 last campaign and is set to eclipse that total.
  • Eoin Doyle – Doyle scored 25 for Swindon Town last season and is looking to repeat that feat for Bolton Wanderers this time around. Doyle is coming to the end of his career but is a born finisher. 

What Happened Last Season?

Last season saw League Two suspended indefinitely on April 3, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This suspension saw a points-per-game average taken to decide the table, with the play-offs being allowed to go ahead in the summer.

Swindon Town, Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle were the beneficiaries by gaining automatic promotion, with Cheltenham Town, Exeter City and Colchester United losing out to Northampton Town in the play-offs.

Macclesfield Town were the only side that faced the drop out of the football league, with Stevenage given a reprieve.
