Around League Two

31 October 2019

Ahead of the next round of fixtures, we take a look at some of the stories around Sky Bet League Two.


Colchester Into Carabao Cup Quarter-Finals

It was Colchester United who came out on top in the all-League Two Carabao Cup last 16 clash, beating Crawley Town 3-1.

Crawley took the lead in the game thanks to a stunning long-range effort from Dannie Bulman, but were ahead for little over a minute.

Luke Norris equalised, then after the interval, an own-goal from Town goalkeeper Michael Luyambula and Luke Gambin’s strike ensured the U’s passage to the last eight.


EFL'S Longest Serving Manager Resigns

Jim Bentley, who had been the Morecambe manager for eight and a half years left his post on Monday to join National League side, AFC Fylde.

The club have won just two league games this season and are bottom of the standings after losing away at Stevenage 1-0 on Saturday.

Until a replacement is found, Shrimps forward Kevin Ellison and goalkeeper Barry Roche will take charge of the club on a caretaker basis.


Hussey Signs New Robins Deal

Left-back Chris Hussey has signed a contract extension with Cheltenham Town to keep the 30-year-old at the League Two club until at least 2021.

Hussey signed for Cheltenham in the summer of 2018 and is highly rated in Gloucestershire.

"In my opinion he is the best left-back in the league" said boss Michael Duff.

"He helps us with his quality and delivery going forward - [he has] a number of assists already from dead balls and open play."


Crewe Sign Defender Mbulu 

Christian Mbulu has joined league-leaders Crewe Alexandra on a short-term deal after leaving Scottish Premiership side Motherwell – who he played for six-times last season.

Mbulu will look to tighten up Crewe’s backline, with the team keeping just three clean sheets across nineteen matches in all competitions this term.

The Railwaymen have conceded seventeen goals in fifteen league games but top the table on thirty points with a record of nine wins and three losses.
