Who will be playing league football next season?

Following their 17th win of the season, Burton Albion look set for automatic promotion. The question remains on who will join them in League Football Two?
Torquay United’s automatic promotion chances were dealt a cruel blow yesterday when they suffered their first defeat in twelve games.

The Gulls have an impressive record against the top five including two resounding wins over Histon and Stevenage earlier in the season. They also boast the best away record in the league with twelve wins and four loses.

Kidderminster Harriers are currently in top form with an unbeaten run of ten games, and striker Matthew Barnes-Homer also has an impressive goal scoring record with 19 goals so far this season. With upcoming fixtures against play-off contenders Histon and Stevenage, Kidderminster are in for a challenging final weeks.

Cambridge United are back to winning ways after two straight loses. With upcoming games against mid-table teams Cambridge have the best fixtures on paper, they look for their second consecutive play-off final.

After two loses and a draw Histon are suffering from a slump in form, but with the advantage of games at hand and the second best goal scoring rate after Burton Albion, Histon are still in contention.

Stevenage Borough are positioned just out of the play-offs on goal difference and with the FA Trophy final approaching Stevenage look to secure their first silverware for the season. Stevenage’s Steve Morison is third top scorer in the Blue Square with 21 goals to his name and they also have a balance of equal wins at home and away, similar last years performance. Upcoming games against Torquay United and Kidderminster may decide their playoff chances.

With only a few games to go it’s tight at the top and as Aldershot and Exeter City have shown, there’s still everything to play for.
