League Two 2014/2015 Lineup Complete

Last updated : 26 May 2014 By Jim Bonner

Following Fleetwood's promotion to League Two, the 24 teams that will be contesting the 2014/2015 League Two have now been finalised.

The league next year has a slightly more southern feel to it. With promoted Scunthorpe, Rochdale, Fleetwood and Chesterfield gone although one of their replacements in Carlisle United now represents the longest journey Pompey fans will have to undertake next season as the Cumbrians are even further north than Hartlepool.

Tranmere represents another long journey to Birkenhead for the travelling Portsmouth supporters although Shrewsbury isn't so much of a trek and Stevenage are fairly "local" in the context of the entire country.

Pompey lost two fairly short trips in Torquay and Bristol Rovers to the Conference but they were replaced with two teams who aren't too far to travel in Luton Town and Cambridge United, so there will be high demand for tickets for those games as well as AFC Wimbledon who remain the closest club in Portsmouth's proximity.

Currently Luton are the bookmakers' favourites to win League Two based on how they stormed the Conference last season, have a manager who has won promotion from the fourth tier before and are generally seen as a club too big for League Two despite their five years in non-league.

Bury are the second favourites as they finished last season with a flourish and seem to have some money to spend. David Flitcroft is already starting to sign players to build a team capable of winning promotion.

Portsmouth are currently third favourites with Ladbrokes currently offering the best odds of 12/1 to win League Two with SkyBet offering 3/1 for promotion.

It will be another season of high expectation but this division does seem stronger on paper than it did last season, so Andy Awford will need a few more signings of the calibre of Danny Hollands yet if his team are to fulfil such a high billing.

The fixtures for next season will be released on the 18th of June and those who will be participating in the big cycle ride on the final away day of the season will desperately be hoping that it's not Carlisle or Hartlepool!
