League Two Odds: Promotion and Relegation Candidates
League Two has once again proven to be hugely competitive with many sides still in the hunt for automatic promotion to the third tier and a handful of strugglers battling against dropping down to the National league.
Stockport County have been setting the pace in League Two since the early stages of the 2023/24 campaign and while they failed at the 2022/23 play-off final, there’s every chance that they will win automatic promotion less than twelve months later. At the opposite end of the division, the chances are that Sutton United and Forest Green Rovers will be in a two-way battle to avoid finishing bottom of the pile.
1/14 for promotion
13/8 for the title
Stockport County remain in pole position in the League Two table, however their lead is down to just a single point following some disappointing results. The Hatters went down 1-3 at home to Crewe Alexandra last week and followed this with a hugely disappointing 4-0 defeat away to Tranmere Rivers on Saturday afternoon. While they still ride high in the League Two table, County need to turn things around should they wish to remain at the summit of the division although they remain favourites to clinch the title and win promotion to the third tier at odds of 13/8 and 1/14 respectively.
1/12 for promotion
7/4 for the title
Having demolished Harrogate Town to the tune of 9-2 last week, Mansfield Town failed to take advantage of Stockport County’s slip-up by losing 2-1 away to Walsall at the weekend. The Stags will doubtless have been hugely disappointed by their failure to take all three points and leapfrog the Hatters into pole position but they are still regarded as one of the sides most likely to make the jump to the third tier at the end of the campaign.
2/7 for promotion
16/5 for the title
Few League Two sides have been more talked about than Wrexham this season and they were the only one of the top three sides to post a win at the weekend, a 1-0 victory over Notts County lifting them to within two points of second-placed Mansfield Town and three from leaders Stockport County. The Welsh side also enjoy a game-in-hand over each of the top two and as such, they too are regarded as one of the main contenders for promotion.
1/8 for relegation
Sutton United’s winless run was extended to ten league games when they lost 1-0 away to Bradford City at the weekend and the South London side remain firmly at the foot of the table with one point separating them from 23rd-placed Forest Green Rovers who enjoy a game-in-hand.
Forest Green Rovers
1/4 for relegation
It was a third straight defeat on the bounce for First Green Rivers when they went down 2-0 at Crawley Town in their last outing. The Gloucestershire outfit sit just one point above Sutton United as things stand although they enjoy a game-in-hand over the South Londoners.
The race for promotion from League Two is hotting up and it remains to be seen who makes the jump into the third tier at the end of the campaign.
Stockport County have been the dominant force in this season’s League Two campaign and they deservedly sit at the summit of the division as we fast approach the business end of the season. Mansfield Town, Crewe Alexander, Wrexham and Barrow remain hot on their heels and these sides will be hopeful of hauling themselves into League One at the end of the season while at the opposite end of the division, Sutton United and Forest Green Rovers are battling hard to escape the relegation zone.
1/16 for promotion
6/5 for the title
Stockport County failed to win promotion at the play-off final stage at the end of last season, losing on penalties to Carlisle United at Wembley. Nevertheless, they have been a dominant force in the fourth tier this season and currently sit at the summit of the League Two table after 31 rounds of fixtures. The Hatters slipped up when losing 1-3 at home to fellow promotion-hopefuls Crewe Alexander on Tuesday evening however and their lead at the summit of the division is now just a single point.
1/16 for promotion
2/1 for the title
Mansfield Town enjoyed their biggest league win in their history when they demolished Harrogate Town to the tune of 9-2 on Tuesday evening, this result lifting them to within a single point of League Two leaders Stockport County who lost to Crewe that same evening. This victory has thrown the League Two title race wide open and the Stags are now level in the market with the Hatters on the promotion front and just 2/1 to finish in pole position.
4/11 for promotion
6/1 for the title
Wrexham are almost certainly the most talked about League Two side at the moment thanks to their connection to actor Ryan Reynolds. The North Wales side hauled themselves out of the National League at the end of last season and are flying high in fourth position in League Two right now, the side two points behind third-placed Crewe Alexander but with two games-in-hand over the Cheshire side. The bookmakers go a best price of 4/11 that Wrexham win promotion and 6/1 that they make it into the third tier as champions at the end of the season.
1/7 for relegation
Sutton United sit at the foot of the League Two table after 32 rounds of league fixtures and thus far they have only managed four wins during this time. The South London side are relative newcomer to the Football League but as things stand, they are odds-on favourites at a best price of 1/7 to drop back down to the fifth tier of the English game at the end of 2023/24.
Forest Green Rovers
1/3 for relegation
Forest Green currently reside in 23rd position in the League Two table and as things stand they are just a single point and one position above bottom side Sutton United with one game in hand. They have only managed five wins whilst on league duty this term and the leading betting sites go a general 1/3 that they find themselves plying their trade in the National league next term.
The 2023/24 season is about to get underway and we take a look at the main contenders for promotion and relegation in League Two..
Wrexham and Notts County lifted themselves up from the National league while Forest Green Rovers, Morecambe, Accrington Stanley and MK Dons came down from league One.
National League champions Wrexham were immediately installed as 4/5 favourites to make it two successive promotions at the end of 2023/24 while last season’s beaten play-off finalists Stockport County are second in the betting at a best price of 2/1.
Crawley Town managed to avoid the drop at the end of 2022/23 but they have installed as one of the favourites for relegation this coming season, along with newly-relegated side Morecambe.
5/6 for promotion
7/2 for the title
Wrexham lifted the 2022/23 National League title in impressive fashion, the North Wales outfit having amassed 111 points from their 46 league outings. The Robins lost just three times whilst in league action last season and they have immediately been installed as firm favourites to storm right through League Two and into the third tier at the first time of asking, most firms going just 7/2 that they go up as champions.
11/8 for promotion
13/2 for the title
Despite taking the lead at Wembley two months ago, Stockport County lost their play-off final against northern rivals Carlisle United with penalties being needed to separate the two sides. The Hatters finished fourth in the final League Two table after a strong finish to the campaign and the leading UK betting sites make them second favourites for promotion in 2023/24 at general odds of 2/1.
7/4 for promotion
7/1 for the title
Notts County amassed 107 points from their 46 league games last season but amazingly this still wasn’t enough to secure for them the National League title, four points separating them from winners Wrexham at the close of play. Instead they were forced to negotiate the play-offs which they successfully achieved and having lost just three times whilst in league action in 2022/23, they are third favourites to make another leap at the end of the new season.
3/1 for relegation
Crawley Town managed to avoid relegation last season with just three points separating them from the bottom two at the close of the campaign. The West Sussex outfit won just 11 of their 46 league outings throughout 2022/23 with 22 defeats during that time and they have been installed as 3/1 favourites (some bookies going as low as 2/1) to drop down into the National League at the end of 2023/24.
4/1 for relegation
Morecambe hauled themselves into League via the play-offs at the end of the 2020/21 campaign and while they managed to avoid the drop the following season, they succumbed to relegation at the end of 2022/23 having finished just a single point away from safety. The Shrimps managed just 10 wins from their 46 League One outings last term and they are fancied to suffer a second successive relegation in 2023/24, the bookies going best odds of 4/1 that this p[roves to be the case.
9/2 for relegation
Harrogate Town lost just one of their last ten games last season and thus ensured their survival in the Football League for another season, however this solid run came on the back of what was a disappointing season for the North Yorkshire side. Town lost 18 of their 46 league games throughout 2022/23 with just 12 wins during that time and they are general 9/2 third favourites to drop down into the National league at the end of the season.
