Could Stockport County finally return to League One

As the season draws to a close, the top of the League Two table is highly contested, with Stockport County moving into third place after a decisive 4-0 victory over Newport County on Easter Monday.

They are the only team to have secured six points over the Easter weekend, while their promotion-rivals Carlisle United and Stevenage have dropped points, leaving all three teams tied on 70 points in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th league positions behind Leyton Orient who are 8-points clear of 2nd place Northampton Town at the top of the table.

Stevenage and Bradford City both have a game in hand, which could be crucial for their respective bids to secure a playoff position in the upcoming final weeks of the League Two campaign.

Carlisle United's promotion hopes have the capacity to be hindered by a concerning fixture schedule, including games against teams who are mostly top of the League table, such as Northampton, Stockport County, and Salford City.

The recent upsets in League Two have made every match a challenging one, and the battle for automatic promotion and playoff spots is fierce. However, based on their current form and statistics, it seems likely that Stockport will maintain their position in the automatic promotion zone if they continue their impressive unbeaten streak. In contrast, Stevenage's form has become unstable, as they have failed to win in their last five league fixtures. Similarly, Carlisle United's form has been shaky, with more losses and draws in their previous five matches than Stockport. This could be County's opportunity to shoot back up to EFL League One for the first time in 13 years since they were relegated in the 2009/10 campaign.
