Around League Two

24 January 2020

After another busy week around Sky Bet League Two, we take a look at some of the stand-out stories -

Orient and Northampton Brawl After Draw

Leyton Orient and Northampton Town both had a man sent-off with ugly scenes taking place following a late penalty equaliser from Josh Wright.

Ryan Watson gave the visitors the lead just before half-time but Wright denied them the victory by converting his 85th minute spot-kick.

Minutes later, the Cobblers’ Scott Wharton was sent-off along with James Dayton, after a mass brawl took place involving 14 players from both sides.

The hosts moved up a place in the table, to 19th place, on 28 points, while Northampton remain 6th, with 46 points.


Colchester and Bradford Share Spoils

Colchester United and Bradford City played out a goalless draw on Tuesday evening at the JobServe Community Stadium.

The away team could have gone into the top three with a victory but instead, sit 5th on 46 points, with the U’s in 7th, a point below.

Bradford went closest to breaking the deadlock with little over ten minutes of the match to go, when Chris Taylor’s long-range strike hit the bar.


Walsall Sign Midfielder Sheron

Nathan Sheron has agreed to join Walsall from Fleetwood Town on-loan, in a deal that will last for the rest of the season.

He spoke to the club website and said: "I like to get stuck in, I like to win the ball and then get us moving.”

The 22-year-old played 33 times for Fleetwood in 2018/19 but has made just one appearance for the club this campaign.


Stevenage Complete Jackson Deal

Former Norwich City striker Simeon Jackson has signed for League Two side Stevenage for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

The Canadian had been a free agent after he left Scottish Premier League club Kilmarnock in December once his contract had run out.

The 32-year-old played for the Canaries for three years and has also had spells at Rushden and Diamonds as well as Gillingham.
