2019/20 EFL League Two Relegation Predictions, Betting Odds & Tips

This weekend sees the highly anticipated return of the English Football League. After three long months away, all three divisions with host a series of games over the opening weekend. 

Down in League Two, the battle for survival looks to be one of the most difficult to predict in recent times. After a dramatic last day last season which saw Notts County and Yeovil Town exit through the trap door, several other clubs will be watching over their shoulders this season, including the likes of Macclesfield Town, Grimsby and Morecambe.

Sol Campbell did an astonishing job at Macclesfield Town in the second half of last season, but
keeping them up once again is likely to prove a very difficult task.

The former Arsenal star came in when Macclesfield were languishing at the bottom of the table after a torrid start to their first campaign back in the Football League. Campbell breathed new life into the club and a great string of results in the second half of the season saw them secure their safety on the final day of the season, condemning Notts County and Yeovil Town to life in the National League.

A summer which has seen a lot of last season’s squad either return home or be released means
that Campbell will be starting the new campaign with one of the smallest squads in the division. It seems unlikely they will be able to attract too many stars. The club has the second-lowest valued squad in the division and that lack of quality is going to be a tough obstacle to overcome.

If Campbell leaves his post at the club, which is highly likely given how much attention he
received following the end of this season, then you can expect Macclesfield’s two-year tenure in
the football league to be brought to an end.

Macclesfield are current favourites for the drop and brilliant value at 4.50. 

Verdict

After surviving by the skin of their teeth last season, this year may prove to be a step too far for Macclesfield Town.
