Around League Two

20 February 2020

It has been another busy week within Sky Bet League Two, here are some of the stories from elsewhere -

EFL Investigate Stevenage Postponement

Stevenage’s request to have their match with Oldham postponed back in November is now being looked into by the English Football League.

The club made the plea as a result of international call-ups and the fixture was later played on 14th January.

It is understood Oldham have complained to the EFL and the case has been referred to an independent disciplinary commission.

Chairman Phil Wallace said: “We will use the full resources at our disposal to protect the reputation of the club and avoid the imposition of financial penalties."


Exeter Knocked-Out Of EFL Trophy

Exeter City suffered heartbreak in the semi-final of the Leasing.com Trophy on Tuesday night as Portsmouth scored twice in injury time to win the game 3-2.

The match started slowly and unbelievably it wasn’t until the 79th minute that the deadlock was broken, through Exeter captain Jake Taylor.

Marcus Harness equalised soon after, before a Christian Burgess own-goal in the final minute of normal time looked like it was going to be enough for The Grecians.

But Pompey levelled courtesy of Cameron McGeehan two minutes later and the incredible comeback was completed in the 96th minute when John Marquis headed home.

 

Westley Leaves Stevenage For The Fourth Time

For the fourth time in his career, Graham Westley has parted ways with Stevenage - with the 51-year-old being unable to turn the side’s form around.

The Boro have lost their last six matches and are bottom of the League Two Table, eight points behind Morecambe who are a place above them.

Former Stevenage striker Alex Revell will become the team’s fourth manager this season following Dino Maamria, Mark Sampson and Westley.

"We are uncomfortable making another change as Graham has worked tirelessly for the club since the day he arrived,” Chairman Phil Wallace told the club website.

"Alex knows the players’ strengths and weaknesses and we are hoping his energy, dedication and enthusiasm will bring us the wins we need to survive” he added.
