Monday's League Two predictions including Stockport County vs. AFC Wimbledon

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's League Two fixtures, including Stockport County vs. AFC Wimbledon.

Relegation-threatened Grimsby Town take on Bradford City, who reside in mid-table, at Blundell Park on Monday afternoon in League Two.

The hosts are 21st in the table with a three-point gap over the relegation zone, holding a game in hand on those around them, while Bradford City are 14th, 17 points clear of the bottom two and seven away from the playoffs.

We say: Grimsby Town 0-1 Bradford City

Grimsby have failed to beat Bradford City in any of the last 20 meetings between the two, with their last victory coming as a 2-0 home victory in October 1998, and we expect that long barren spell to continue.

Bradford comfortably won 2-0 in their last outing against Tranmere Rovers, and we expect them to build on that victory with another three points at Blundell Park.

Crewe vs. Forest Green (Monday, 3.00pm)

Two sides who could do well with all three points go head to head in round 42 of the League Two as Crewe Alexandra play host to Forest Green Rovers at the Mornflake Stadium on Monday.

A run of three consecutive defeats has seen the Green Army plunge to the bottom of the league standings and they will head into the game looking to kickstart their quest for survival.

We say: Crewe Alexandra 2-0 Forest Green Rovers

While Crewe have suffered a slump in form in recent weeks, they will be backing themselves against an out-of-sorts Forest Green side who have lost their last three games. Bell's men have been rock-solid at home this season and we fancy them to come away with maximum points here.

Gillingham will be looking to complete the double over Harrogate Town when they journey to the EnviroVent Stadium in round 42 of the League Two on Monday.

In September's reverse fixture, 37-year-old Shaun Williams grabbed the headlines at the Priestfield Stadium as he netted the only goal of the game in the fourth minute of stoppage time to hand the Gills all three points.

We say: Harrogate Town 2-2 Gillingham

With Harrogate and Gillingham in contention for a playoff spot, we anticipate an action-packed contest at the EnviroVent Stadium, with both sides going all out for the result. However, we predict they will cancel out each other's efforts and settle for a share of the spoils.

Mansfield vs. Accrington (Monday, 3.00pm)

Mansfield Town will be looking to return to the top of the League Two standings when they play host to Accrington Stanley at the One Call Stadium on Monday.

Having failed to win any of their last three outings, the Owd Reds will head into the game looking to stop the rot and resume their quest for a top-half finish.

We say: Mansfield Town 2-1 Accrington Stanley

While Mansfield Town has suffered a drop-off in form of late, they will be backing themselves against a floundering Accrington side who have managed just one win in their last nine outings. That said, we are backing Clough's men to come away with all three points in front of their home supporters.

Morecambe vs. Barrow (Monday, 3.00pm)

Barrow continue their push for automatic promotion on Monday when they take a trip to the Mazuma Mobile Stadium to square off against Morecambe.

Having suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat in October's reverse fixture, the Shrimps will head into the game looking to get one over the visitors and move into the promotion playoff places.

We say: Morecambe 1-2 Barrow

Buoyed by their win over Accrington, Morecambe will head into Monday's game with renewed confidence as they look to return into the playoff places. However, Barrow have hit their stride at the business end of the season and we see them coming away with a narrow victory.

Newport vs. Crawley (Monday, 3.00pm)

Crawley Town will travel to Rodney Parade on Monday to face Newport County in the first of three successive away contests for the West Sussex side in League Two.

Newport failed to hang onto a 1-0 half-time advantage on Friday, losing 2-1 to Colchester United, while the Red Devils suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Doncaster Rovers.

We say: Newport County 1-1 Crawley Town

There should be plenty of urgency from both sides given that each are still in the hunt for a playoff berth, but we do not believe either team will have a decisive edge on Monday, seeing as only four points currently separate them in the standings.

Notts County vs. MK Dons (Monday, 3.00pm)

MK Dons can potentially close the gap between themselves and the top three teams in League Two when they travel to Meadow Lane on Monday for a match with Notts County.

On Friday, the Magpies dropped to 16th in the table with a 2-1 defeat to Swindon Town, while the Dons crushed Walsall 5-0 to remain in fourth, just three points behind Wrexham and Mansfield Town for one of the three automatic promotional places next season.

We say: Notts County 1-2 MK Dons

Defensively, Notts County have struggled to hold it together throughout the year, and they are catching MK Dons at a bad time, with the visitors fresh off an emphatic victory last week, while the Dons have the added motivation of being in the thick of the race for a spot in League One.

Stockport vs. AFC Wimbledon (Monday, 3.00pm)

Stockport County can maintain their narrow advantage atop the League Two table with a victory on Monday versus AFC Wimbledon at Edgeley Park.

The Hatters moved into first place thanks to a 3-0 win over Forest Green Rovers, while the Wombles are eighth following a 1-1 draw with Harrogate Town.

We say: Stockport County 2-0 AFC Wimbledon

Stockport County ended the month of March in sparkling form, looking strong across the board in their last two convincing triumphs.

Therefore, we believe they will have the upper hand against a Wimbledon side that have not been quite as consistent over 90 minutes and are not nearly as sharp in front of goal as the league leaders.

Sutton vs. Swindon (Monday, 3.00pm)

Securing a fourth win on the bounce will be the major objective for Sutton United when they welcome Swindon Town to the VBS Community Stadium on Monday in League Two.

Meanwhile, the visitors head to London aiming to secure consecutive victories for the first time this year, having returned to winning ways last time out.

We say: Sutton United 2-1 Swindon Town

The hosts are on a better run of results heading into this one, and coupled with the added advantage of playing on home turf, we are backing them to come out on top at the sound of the final whistle.

Tranmere vs. Colchester (Monday, 3.00pm)

Round 42 of the 2023-24 League Two season sees Tranmere Rovers and Colchester United go head-to-head at Prenton Park on Monday afternoon.

The teams head into this one off the back of contrasting results in their most recent outings, but a close encounter is expected here nonetheless.

We say: Tranmere Rovers 2-1 Colchester United

Given the defensive records of both teams so far, we can hardly see either coming away with a clean sheet from this one. We also fancy the home side to just about get the job done in the end.

Walsall vs. Salford City (Monday, 3.00pm)

Walsall and Salford City will both be looking to bounce back from respective defeats last time out when they lock horns at the Bescot Stadium on Monday.

The hosts will also be looking to complete a league double over their visitors following a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in September.

We say: Walsall 2-0 Salford City

Walsall retain a slim chance of making the playoffs, but there is little margin for error from here on out. We can see the home side coming away with maximum points here.
