Today we are looking at League Two and Plymouth Argyle are leading the way as we go into 2016, 3 points clear after winning at, of all places, Ewood Park! They were playing at Blackburn Rovers ground as Carlisle United, whose home game it was, have had flooding issues and therefore played this particular fixture at Ewood. A good crowd watched the game, of which there were over 800 Plymouth fans, and they were rewarded for their long trip north by seeing their team win 2-0.
Northampton Town are having a fine season and are just 3 points behind Plymouth with a game in hand after beating Barnet comprehensively at home 3-0. In the other promotion place a further point behind are Michael Appleton`s Oxford United who also had a good win, 4-2 at Notts County, so the race is really hotting up.
In 4th are probably the biggest club in League Two, Portsmouth, who are by far the best supported team in the Division, and they also had a fine 3-0 win at home to Crawley. They are currently 4 points from the automatic promotion spots and the pressure is surely on manager Paul Cook to gain promotion this season, either automatically or through the play-offs. Bristol Rovers have made a welcome return to the Football League and they are looking for two consecutives promotions, going into 5th place after a 2-0 win at home to Luton Town.
Wycombe Wanderers were the only team in the current top 7 to taste defeat, losing 2-0 at home to a Morecambe side who will still entertain thoughts of getting a run at the play-offs. The final spot in the play-off places goes to Accrington Stanley who have a terrific away record, and they won away again defeating Mansfield Town in an entertaining match 3-2. John Coleman`s side have as many as 3 games in hand on many of their promotion rivals and will be still looking at getting into an automatic spot come the shake up in May.
In 8th position just outside the play off positions are Leyton Orient, who drew 2-2 with Stevenage. Teddy Sheringham seems to be making progress with Stevenage, as after a very poor start to the season they have picked up well and are heading in the right direction.
York City are propping up the table after the other team in a relegation spot, Yeovil Town, beat them 1-0. Check out the latest table below:
