The clubs in League Two need to dust themselves down after a midweek programme. There were some eye-catching results in the week and that included an emphatic Forest Green win away to Harrogate. Rovers head to Boundary Park to face a relegation-threatened Oldham team, although it will be interesting to see whether Mansfield can continue their strong form.
Exeter City 15:00 Tranmere Rovers
Tranmere were fortunate to score a late winner at Oldham on Saturday. The Wirral side now make a long trip to St James’ Park to face an Exeter side who have been strong at home this season. They have won five and drawn four, with Matt Taylor’s side having played well against Northampton in the week despite losing.
Harrogate Town 15:00 Northampton Town
Northampton have now hit second in the table and the Cobblers are looking like automatic promotion material. They claimed a 2-1 win at Exeter in the week and now head to Yorkshire. We think there will be goals scored, with Harrogate having been handed a thrashing against Forest Green, although Town are generally a dangerous side.
Leyton Orient 15:00 Crawley Town
Kenny Jackett is a dab hand when it comes to League Two management. The former Wolves and Portsmouth manager has seen Orient really improve in recent weeks. They have won six of their ten games at home, scoring twenty-three goals and only conceding five. Crawley are unlikely to stop them landing another three points.

Mansfield Town 15:00 Salford City
There were Mansfield supporters calling for Nigel Clough’s head at the beginning of the campaign. However, the Stags have now won eight of their nine games played more recently. We fancy them to overcome a Salford team who are struggling under Gary Bowyer and there have been five defeats already on the road this season.
Newport County 15:00 Port Vale
Both of these sides have promotion claims based on current evidence. Newport might have recently parted company with Mike Flynn although they sit eighth in the table and played out a 3-2 win over Sutton during the week. As for the Valiants, they enjoyed a 2-1 win at Bristol Rovers and it seems logical to go for the scoring angle.

Oldham Athletic 15:00 Forest Green Rovers
It’s hard being an Oldham fan right now. Keith Curle recently left Boundary Park and they were beaten 1-0 at home to Tranmere on Tuesday despite creating plenty of chances. They will now face the best team in the division and it’s hard to see how they can stop a Forest Green side who have been racking up the wins to propel them towards automatic promotion.
