There are four League Two games on Tuesday night for you to sink your teeth into – with Accrington Stanley versus Portsmouth the pick of the bunch as the victors of tonight’s clash will take hold of fourth spot in the bottom-tier of English professional football.

The hosts currently sit one point ahead of Pompey, but another eight points adrift of third-placed Plymouth Argyle who occupy the final automatic promotion spot, with both teams desperate to close the gap on the top three as there are only 13 games remaining of the season (12 for Portsmouth).

Paul Cook’s Portsmouth defeated Stevenage 2-0 on Saturday to move just a point behind tonight’s opponents Accrington.

Meanwhile at the very opposite end of the table; Dagenham and Redbridge are seeking only their sixth league win of the campaign when they welcome Carlisle United to Victoria Road this evening.

John Still’s side were given an injection of optimism over the weekend after defeating fellow relegation rivals York City 1-0 on Saturday to move within seven points of survival, despite the Daggers being rooted to the bottom of the standings still.

The visiting Cumbrians themselves had a horrid weekend, being thrashed 4-1 by runaway leaders Northampton Town, although victory for Keith Curle’s men on Tuesday could fire Carlisle level on points with AFC Wimbledon in seventh – the final play-off place.

Elsewhere; the Wombles travel to Bristol Rovers who have convincingly won their last two League Two encounters on the spin.

The Pirates brushed past lowly Hartlepool United 4-1 last week before coming away 2-0 victors from Meadow Lane after fending off Notts County 2-0 at the weekend, helping tonight’s hosts move three points clear of Wimbledon in sixth spot.

And finally; Newport County take on Barnet, with Warren Feeney’s side determined to continue their good run of form, with the Exiles now 11 points clear of the drop zone after winning four of their last six meetings.

Whereas Barnet are sat comfortably in mid-table; with the Bees 17 points above the bottom two, but still another ten away from the top seven after Saturday’s surprise 3-1 defeat to Hartlepool.
