Intelligent Punters Should Back Cambridge United For League Two Glory

It has been a long summer without football in our lives but it finally explodes back into life this weekend with League Two the focus of our attention today. The 4th tier of English football is always a competitive league with several teams expected to be in the running for promotion, and we have taken a closer look at the main runners and riders...

Tips Cambridge United to win League Two    Best Bet @ 20 / 1  
Carlisle to be promoted @ 4 / 1  

The Favourites...

All the talk during the off season has surrounded Mansfield Town with Steve Evans set to embark on his first full season in charge of the club. Evans has previous in the lower leagues at gaining promotion and the signs last season were good as he took the reins midway the campaign and they have been busy in the transfer window.

At the time of writing, 13 players have arrived at Mansfield including Paul Anderson, Jacob Mellis and Will Atkinson the headline names. All three have experience in the Championship and that strength ensures they are 11/2 favourites with Paddy Power.com to win the League Two title.

Luton (7/1) suffered play-off heartbreak last season and will be hoping to bounce back this season, but that will be a tough ask given the departures of Jack Marriott and Cameron McGeehan.

Coventry (10/1) are the big name in the divisor following their latest relegation and it will be fascinating to see how the 1987 FA Cup winners fare. Manager Mark Robins did steady the ship last term which is encouraging, but it is very hard to arrest a slide as countless teams have shown over the years.

Outsiders...

It has been a terrible spell for Swindon Town (14/1) recently, and that culminated int heir relation to League Two. Tim Sherwood has thankfully left the club and it is David Flitcroft who is in the hot-seat for the former Premier League team, and he will be hoping to do what he did with Bury and gain promotion to League One.

There aren't too many better lower league Managers than Paul Tisdale and he will once again be charged with leading Exeter (17/1) to a good season. They went close last season before falling short in the play-offs, but concerns for them exist following the departures of key men Joel Grant and Ollie Watkins.

Carlisle will hope new man Hallam Hope can fire them to League One football after their play-off exit last term, whilst Cambridge United are also of interest having narrowly missed out on the play-offs last term. David Forde has arrived from Portsmouth to add quality, and they are attractive at 20/1 with Sky Bet.com to win League Two.

Who's Going Down?

Morecombe (9/4) struggled last season and are likely to be up against it again this term, whilst Harry Kewell has a tough first managerial role on his hands at Crawley (4/1), especially given that their top scorer from last season has jumped ship to Luton over the summer.
