Odd unit: EU | UK | US

The League 2 will start its new season on August. With only 2 relegation spots for 24 teams, the battle in the lower bottom is always reduced to a small number of teams fighting to survive and stay one more season in the league. Consistency and winning the crucial points with the other contenders is the key to permanence, and for this year some teams will have to do their best if they want to achieve that.

Starting with the newly promoted teams, as in most cases they always have a first season to settle in the league, some analysis can be done. For the National League champions Lincoln City, the question lies around some key players that will be hard for them to retain. The experienced forward Matt Rhead had a great season, with 15 goals and 13 assists in 43 matches, being a key factor in the promotion. Together with the offensive midfielder Nathan Anderson was the top scorers of the team, and if they’ll stay they can be useful in the new league. Manager Danny Cowley is letting some players young players go, which means that new signings will came to fulfill the squad. If those prove to be right, Lincoln City can achieve permanence with some ease.

Forest Green Rovers were promoted through playoffs and might have a harder time. The problem for manager Mark Cooper lies in the welsh forward Christian Doidge. After a tremendous season, with 25 goals in 41 matches, he is being linked with some League one teams. A loss like this would be hard to replace. However, reports at the moment say that he will be staying. The Rovers will have a complete squad revamp, and in this cases it’s hard to predict any outcome. The first weeks will be crucial for them.

Newport County will have to improve if they want to stay this season. Last season they escaped from relegation by only 2 points. The welsh team had a lot of issues, not only in defense but in the offensive line also, and they’ll need some quality players to overcome that. On top of this, they’re losing most of the players, which in a team in this condition isn’t always the best. How they will replace them will be the key.

Cheltenham Town is another team compromised. Although manager Gary Johnson seems to have a more stable squad for this season, he is losing the most important player from past year: the young forward Billy Waters will be playing for Northampton Town and is an important loss. In contrast, some experienced players such as Kevin Dawson and the French Nigel Atangana has been signed.

Yeovil Town will have a hard time building again the squad, with most players leaving and only 8 players currently confirmed for next season. If Darren Way will rely on young loaned players from other teams as they did past season, he might want to rethink that strategy, with some more experienced players in the lineup also being considered. Finally, Morecambe FC is other team that will have to make their fight to stay one more year in the League 2. They lack of a good center forward damaged their scoring chances a lot, and for the moment there are no signs of improvement on this behalf. Manager Jim Bentley will have to improve the defense also, as Morecambe was one of the teams with most goals received the past season.
