511596Jim Bentley – Morecambe

With 4 wins out their first 4 matches, Jim Bentley’s Morecambe were the only team in the Football League to have a 100% record going into last week. The Shrimps were brought back down to earth with a 2-1 defeat at Tranmere but nevertheless are still riding high in 3rd place. Bentley took over at The Globe in 2011 and has built solid foundations at the club, keeping many of his first team squad from last season. With Kevin Ellison and Paul Mullin two of the tops scorers in the league, this Morecambe side may well continue to surprise.

Micky-Mellon-Barnsley_3028338Micky Mellon – Shrewsbury

Having scored 11 goals already this season, Shrewsbury are proving to be one of the most exciting sides in the Football League. Micky Mellon’s side are unbeaten so far, only dropping points away at Wimbledon and Northampton. The New Meadow is rapidly becoming a fortress with Shrews winning 3 out of 3 at home so far, including an impressive 4-0 thrashing of Accrington Stanley.


Chances of winning: 2/5


Gary-RowettGary Rowett – Burton Albion

There’s something in the air in Burton. Having just missed out on promotion last year, The Brewers look stronger and more determined than ever. Gary Rowett has kept onto a majority of the players that performed so well for him last year, with the exception of Billy Kee and Marcus Holness. Along with Cheltenham and Portsmouth, Burton have conceded the least amount of goals in the league (3) and look like a more confident side from the one which perhaps overachieved last season.

Having been written off by many over the summer, Cheltenham are proving the doubters wrong becoming the dark horses of League 2. Whilst home wins, to Accrington and Hartelpool were perhaps expected, away wins at Bury and Tranmere were mighty impressive. Yates’ men may not be the most free-scoring of all the sides in the divisions, but like Burton their defensive record is excellent. Koby Arthur has had a tricky start to his young career, but he looks settled with the Robins and could be the difference between staying in staying in League 2 and promotion.
