A quick view of League Two


This week in League Two we’ve seen Morecambe come close to top spot, Crewe continue their revival and the ‘Paolo Di Canio show’ rumbles on.

On Saturday Jim Bentley’s surprise package Morecambe took on Phil Parkinson’s underachieving Bradford. With it looking like The Shrimpers would take all the points Bradford snatched a draw at the death, which still keeps Morecambe in the top three.

Crewe’s youthful side won comfortably at The Alexandra Stadium 3-1 over a poor Oxford side that still hasn’t found their form this season.

With no Premier League action the Sky camera’s visited the County Ground to witness an action packed game with Swindon coming out on top over Rotherham 3-2 with sub Alan Connell scoring his first goals for Swindon.

In other selected results, Wimbledon’s Christian Jolley scored a 95th minute winner against Port Vale to secure their first ever Football League home win.

Crawley put last week’s defeat behind them with an impressive 4-1 home win against Bristol Rovers, and Torquay put 3 past a hopeless Macclesfield at Plainmoor.

Plymouth’s nightmare season continued at Burton Albion with the home side winning 2-1. Jamie Pitman’s Hereford had a big home win against Dag & Red.

Phil Parkinson takes charge at Valley Parade for the first time against a Bristol Rovers team who haven’t won in 3 League Two games and need to get back on track.

Third place Morecambe entertain League Two leaders Crawley at the Globe Arena in a top of the table clash. Plymouth will be aiming for their first win of the season against Port Vale.

And finally Paul Sturrock returns to his former club Swindon in big game for Paolo Di Canio who needs to continue his winning run in Wiltshire.
