In our League Two betting preview we look at the best possible bets from the two selected fixtures.

Accrington v Grimsby

High flying Accrington take on Grimsby at the Crown Ground looking to continue their fast start to the season

Stanley going for their third win in as many games

It’s been a fantastic start to the season for Accrington Stanley and they look like they’re carrying on from exactly where they left off last term. Their terrific end to the campaign almost saw them back into the play-offs and that upward trajectory certainly hasn’t left them. John Coleman has continued to work wonders with the Lancashire based outfit on a shoestring budget. He’s one of the best managers in the Football League at getting the best out of what he’s got & the results so far have been fantastic, putting them up in second position after six games. Attacking football is what Stanley are built on, and they were at their brilliant best on Saturday.

Goals from Billy Kee and Sean McConville (brace) sealed a comfortable 3-0 win over a good Carlisle side at the Crown Ground which sent out a big statement to their rivals that they mean business. Midfield supremo McConville was the star of the rout, scoring two fantastic goals and epitomising everything good about his side. Now they’ll be looking to back it up against an opponent they’ve struggled against in recent seasons. They took a point from the two meetings with Grimsby last season with the most recent clash a 1-1 draw in April. One man will be fired up for this more than most, with Kayden Jackson facing his former club for the first time. The pacey forward has been a revelation since joining on a free transfer in the summer and he’ll be itching to prove his worth.

John Coleman’s side are on fire at the moment

Inconsistent Grimsby looking to bounce back

The mood in the opposition camp couldn’t be much more different at the moment, with Russell Slade’s Grimsby struggling to get going this season. The Mariners have picked up just six points from their opening six games and it’s seen the former Coventry boss receive a bit of stick from the clubs supporters. It’s Town’s second season back in the Football League and the chairman made it clear he has ambitions to challenge towards the top of the table, but for whatever reason it hasn’t come to fruition. Like Stanley they were in action on Saturday when they produced a shocking performance which resulted in them getting thumped 4-1 by Mansfield.

They actually began quite well, matching their big spending opponents for the opening half an hour but a controversial penalty completely changed the contest. The Mariners’ heads went down and they folded in drastic circumstances. It was a tough afternoon for their sell out 1600 away support and they’ll be demanding a response here, but it won’t be easy. Stanley are excellent at home but this is a big opportunity for them to get back on track, and they certainly have the personnel to get something. The likes of Sam Jones and Siriki Dembele are capable of making something out of nothing and they’ll be the visitors’ biggest threat here in what should be an entertaining ninety minutes.

Forest Green v Lincoln

Last seasons National League promotion winners meet at The New Lawn

Three defeats on the bounce for FGR

This is a historic season for Forest Green as they embark on their first ever Football League campaign. The big spending Gloucestershire outfit overcame Tranmere at Wembley in May to secure promotion and they had high hopes for the upcoming year. But they’ve discovered first hand what an unforgiving place the Football League can be, with Mark Cooper’s men winning just one of their opening six league games. FGR are scoring goals but sloppy errors at the back have cost them fatally and it’s something that they need to eradicate from their game very soon. No side has conceded more goals in the fourth tier than their 18 and it’s a serious concern at the moment.

On the weekend they delivered another performance and result typical of their season so far. They went down 3-1 to table toppers Exeter, with two of The Grecians’ goals coming in the opening 18 minutes which ultimately ended the game as a contest. A late Shamir Mullings consolation goal was the only thing that the home support had to shout about on a disappointing afternoon and we’re expecting them to struggle here. FGR don’t look like the same organised outfit that won promotion just yet with them looking like a cert for BTTS & lose each week, which is something we’re predicting again here.

Christian Doidge has been one of the main positives for FGR this season, netting four goals

Solid return to the Football League for The Imps

Lincoln joined Forest Green in winning promotion from the National League term following their title success and it’s pretty safe to say that they’ve adapted to their new surroundings much better. Led by Danny & Nicky Cowley, The Imps have made an assured start to the season and many people are tipping them as dark horses for promotion. The former Braintree management duo have built something special at Sincil Bank and they’ve managed to carry through that feel good factor from last year into this one. They’re getting 9000 home fans through the turnstiles at home and huge crowds are following them away, with their supporters’ energy obviously influencing matters on the pitch.

After six games City have been beaten just once and they’ve shown what a difficult side they are to face. They’ve recruited well over the summer bringing in established Football League players who’ve added that extra bit of cutting edge to their ranks and once they settle in you really feel they could go on and achieve something special. On the weekend they picked up arguably their result of the season, becoming the first side to beat Stevenage. They come out 2-1 winners courtesy of efforts from Sean Raggett and Ollie Palmer and what made it even more impressive was that they did it with ten men after striker Matt Green was dismissed. Those battling qualities will take them far this season and we’re expecting them use them here to good effect.
