A quick view of League Two

This week in League Two we’ve had Oxford win against Swindon at the County Ground in the A420 Derby for the first time in 38 years, Crawley Town winning away in the English Riviera and Gillingham adding to Plymouth’s woes.

In 1973 the Sydney Opera house was opened, the Watergate scandal kicked off in the USA and until Sunday, it was the last time Oxford won in Swindon.

Crawley continued their good start to the season with an impressive away win at Torquay, with many pundits tipping Crawley to be the team to beat this season. They’re proving them right so far.

The Gills joined Crawley in the top three with another home win against Plymouth, in a game which was short of incident until the last 15 minutes of the game.

Danny Kedwell scored his first goals for Gillingham since his summer move from Wimbledon from the penalty spot, and Luke Rooney made his case for a start in the next game with a great goal from a tight angle.

Plymouth, who are currently in the progress of a takeover, desperately need a deal to go through soon so they can add to the small squad of players Peter Reid has to pick from.

In other selected results Port Vale beat Accrington after taking a 4-0 lead into half time, Shrewsbury won their first game of the season against struggling Crewe and Cheltenham won a five goal thriller at the Sixfields after going 2-1 down.

Team of the Week

GK. Ross Atkins – Burton Albion

RB. Paul Caddis – Swindon Town

LB. Dean Howell – Crawley Town

CB. Michael Duberry – Oxford Utd

CB. John McCombe – Port Vale

MR. Nicky Wroe – Shrewsbury

ML. Rashid Yussuff – AFC Wimbledon

Upcoming Fixtures (key games in bold, with added predictions):

Accrington (1) v Burton (1), Bradford (2) v Barnet (0), Bristol Rovers (3) v Hereford (1), Cheltenham (0) v Crawley (2), Dag & Red (0) v Torquay (0), Macclesfield (1) v AFC Wimbledon (2), Northampton (1) v Morecambe (0), Oxford (2) v Aldershot (1), Plymouth (0) v Crewe (0), Port Vale (3) v Southend (0), Rotherham (3) v Gillingham (2), Shrewsbury (1) v Swindon (1)

Bradford who have had another awful start to a season take on Barnet at home in a must win game for Peter Jackson who has failed to lift spirits at the underachieving club.

After poor starts in the league Plymouth take on Crewe in Devon, in a big game for both clubs.

In a top of the table clash Rotherham take on Gillingham in Sheffield, with both teams performing as people expected I think it’ll be a close game with Adam Le Fondre being the key man for Rotherham again and Curtis Weston the key cog in Gillingham’s wheel.

There you go, another short summary of a league many don’t know about!
