Around League Two

13 February 2020

It has been another busy week around Sky Bet League Two - here are some of the main stories.

Swindon Leave It Late At Northampton 

Joe Lyden ensured Swindon Town remained top of the League Two table on Tuesday night, after his goal secured all three points against Northampton. 

In a match of few chances, Lyden headed in a cross from Eoin Doyle with little over ten minutes remaining. 

The result means The Robins are two points above second-placed Crewe Alexandra, having played a game more. 

Meanwhile, The Cobblers stay in sixth position-  so remain in the play-off places but have now lost their last two home fixtures. 


Plymouth Score Last-Minute Winner At Salford 

Ryan Hardie scored in stoppage time to give Plymouth Argyle a dramatic victory away to Salford City on Tuesday evening. 

Byron Moore opened the scoring in the 19th minute and the away side led until mid-way through the second half. 

Then, former Manchester United strikerJames Wilson scored twice in the space of seven minutes, on his debut for Salford. 

In between Wilson’s two strikes, Antoni Sarvecic netted and so, the game stayed at 2-2 until Hardie’s late winning goal.  


Newport Manager Flynn Has Injury Worries 

Newport County boss Michael Flynn is fearing the worst for his squad, as full-backs Ash Baker and Daniel Leadbitter could have potentially serious injuries. 

Leadbitter tore his hamstring during his team’s 0-0 draw with Walsall ,while Baker has been suffering with a groin injury. 

Ryan Haines and George Nurse, who are also full-backs, are currently injured too and goalkeeper Nick Townsend has strained his calf. 

"Leadbitter has got a tear so that could be his season and Ash could miss the rest of the season.” 

"It's unbelievable, if you lose two right-backs and two left-backs you are in a bit of trouble" said manager Flynn.


Wilcox To Stay At Scunthorpe 

Caretaker-manager Ross Wilcox is to remain in charge of Scunthorpe United for at least the rest of the 2019/20 campaign. 

He managed the club’s Under 23s outfit before taking over as boss of the first team when Paul Hurst was sacked last month. 

Chairman Peter Swann told the club website -

"A decision on the full-time position of manager will be made after the season has finished.”
