League Two opening day preview

The first day of the league season is an exciting time for all football fans. Ambitions vary, but most supporters start with optimism, aware that there is plenty of time for realism in the long slog of a 46-match league season.

Opening day defeats are therefore felt more keenly than others and this is particularly true for followers of recently relegated clubs. A loss on the first day of the season quickly dispels the belief that life will be easier in a lower division and that a quick return can be relied upon.

Two relegated teams meet at Roots Hall as Southend United take on Stockport County in a game that nPower League Two betting is finding tough to call. This is also battle between clubs mired in financial difficulty, but whilst there will be general concern at their team’s plight, supporters will be concentrating on on-field matters.

New Southend boss Paul Sturrock will not expect instant success from his team, as the squad has been overhauled in the summer. Much like those involved in nPower League one betting, the manager will want to see some promise from his new signings, led by captain Craig Easton, but County are perhaps even more in disarray and their new boss Paul Simpson will be happier with a point.

Wycombe Wanderers were also relegated last season and will get an instant idea of their promotion prospects. Morecambe filled the top play-off place last season but their season ended on a sour note as they were hammered 7-2 on aggregate in the semi finals by Dagenham and Redbridge.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

However, everything is in place for another promotion challenge under Sammy Mcllroy and a good start at Adams Park will help extinguish the memories of the Dagenham debacle. The permanent signing of Phil Jevons after an impressive season on loan last year provides an early boost and the Shrimps should be backed not to lose in this curtain-raiser.
