Sky Bet Promotion Update

22 October 2013

Who will be playing League One football next term?

The Sky Bet League Two promotion race is looking wide open after leaders Chesterfield were beaten 2-0 by Burton at the weekend.

They are now joined on 23 points by Rochdale after Ian Henderson scored a late brace to earn a 2-1 victory at Cheltenham, which sees their odds on going up cut from 11/4 to 5/2.

More than half the sides in the division are currently considered single-figure odds with Sky Bet in a market headed by the Spireites, who are closely followed by Fleetwood.

The Cod Army also failed to boost their title credentials as they lost 2-0 on Friday night at Southend, who are now 6/1 to be playing Sky Bet League One football next season.

Exeter arguably put in the performance of the weekend as they ended Scunthorpe’s six-match unbeaten run with an emphatic 4-0 victory at Glanford Park.

That result has seen the Grecians’ promotion odds cut from 9/2 to 7/2, the same price as their defeated hosts, while they are 3/1 to strengthen their place in the top three with a win at fourth-placed Oxford on Tuesday night.

Indeed, odds were defied throughout the division on Saturday with only three home teams recording victories.

Sky Bet promotion odds:
Chesterfield 4/9
Fleetwood 8/15
Oxford 2/1
Rochdale 5/2
Portsmouth 5/2
Scunthorpe 7/2
Exeter 7/2
Burton Albion 9/2
Mansfield 9/2
Newport County 6/1
Southend 6/1
Morecambe 7/1
Wycombe 8/1
