Around League Two

6 March 2020

It has been another busy week around Sky Bet League Two and here are some of the stories which dominate the headlines -

Bassini Interested In Oldham

Former Watford owner Laurence Bassini has visited League Two side Oldham Athletic as he looks to buy the club.

The Latics must visit the High Court on March 18, due to a winding-up petition from HM Revenue & Customs.

Oldham sit 17th in the table - nineteen points above the sole relegation spot, but face a 12-point deduction should they go into administration.

Bassini has met with board members and will be hoping that the deal will go through in a timely manner.


Exeter And Crewe Share Spoils

Exeter City and Crewe Alexandra played out a hard-fought 1-1 draw at St James Park on Tuesday evening.

The visitors had a goal ruled out little over ten minutes into the match when Paul Green was adjudged to be offside.

Exeter took the lead on 32 minutes - largely against the run of play when Will Parkes slotted home past Alex goalkeeper Will Jaaskalainen.

That lead lasted until the hour mark, when Michael Nottingham’s shot found its way into the bottom corner.

The Railwaymen stay second on 66 points, with Exeter a point behind in fourth as both aim to gain automatic promotion to League One.


Plymouth See Off Grimsby

Plymouth Argyle moved up to third by comfortably beating Ian Holloway’s Grimsby Town, 3 - 1 on Tuesday night.

First-half goals from Tyreeq Bakinson, Ryan Hardie and Luke Jephcott ensured that the game was put to bed before the interval.

Argyle look set to mount a serious title challenge, while Holloway will be wanting more from his players, as his team lie 14th with ten games remaining.


Doyle Double Defeats Scunthorpe

Swindon Town have opened up a three-point lead over Crewe at the top of League Two table, following a 2 - 0 victory against Scunthorpe United in midweek.

The match at the County Ground was Swindon’s first for ten days as a result of postponements caused by weather, but there still only ever looked like being one winner.

Their brilliant season continued and so did striker, Eoin Doyle’s, who netted his 24th and 25th goals of the campaign to give his team all three points.
