Who are favourites to win League Two?

Leyton Orient

The O’s have made an exceptional start to the season under Richie Wellens with the east Londoners currently setting an early pace atop the table after a near-flawless opening nine matches, which has seen them drop points in only one contest, a 1-1 draw with Swindon. The likes of former West Ham academy graduate George Moncur, Paul Smyth and Basildon-born American Charlie Kelman have been working wonders to give Orient such a promising start.


This is Salford’s fourth consecutive season in League Two and the Class of ’92-owned club are once again being tipped to climb up the ladder as outright winners. Using their ties at Carrington, Gary Neville, David Beckham and Co appointed former Manchester United U23 head coach Neil Wood to replace Gary Bowyer at the Peninsula Stadium earlier this year, giving the 39-year-old his first taste of senior management. A highly-regarded tactician, Salford will be hoping the appointment proves inspired and he can guide them up to League One next season. It’s certainly been an encouraging start with the club currently in sixth.

Jon Brady guided the Cobblers to fourth in League Two last season, just coming up short in the play-offs to Mansfield Town, and bookies appear confident the East Midlands club will once again be in and around the upper slopes this term. Eleven new faces pitched up at Sixfields Stadium in the summer, including Sam Sherring from Bournemouth and Lee Burge from Sunderland, so there is an optimistic mood at the club with the Midlanders currently in third.


Having knocked Northampton out of the play-offs last campaign, Nigel Clough’s men are naturally being backed to have a pop at the title alongside their East Midlands neighbours. The Stags scraped seventh last term but managed to reach the play-off final, where Port Vale ultimately triumphed 3-0. Clough will now be determined to go one better and seal promotion outright.


Managed by former Manchester City, Southampton and Wales boss Mark Hughes, Bradford appear in capable hands with the experienced Premier League coach. Hughes joined in February, so this is his first full season at Valley Parade, and he made wholesale changes to his squad over the summer, bringing in no fewer than 18 new players, including Jamie Walker from Hearts, 20-year-old Jake Young from Forest Green and Emmanuel Osadebe from Walsall.
