There are a number of teams that look set to join Town in the National League, and a number that are hopeful to replace them in League Two for next season.

The bottom of League two see’s a number of clubs battling for football league survival, heading into the last fixtures of the season.

Currently sitting bottom of League 2 is Chesterfield, 7 points from safety. Their only saving grace is the one games in hand on the two teams ahead of them, but only 1 win in 6 seems to suggest they will struggle to capitalise after another defeat last night away at Exeter City.

 Sat in 23rd place is Barnet, just 2 points ahead of bottom placed Chesterfield. A recent push by the team has seen them take 7 points from their last 5 outings, however they sit 5 points behind Grimsby and with only three fixtures to play, they look doomed for the drop.

The last two teams that are still battling at the bottom of the league are Grimsby Town and Forest Green Rovers. The teams sit just 1 point apart, with Forest Green holding the advantage and a game in hand over Grimsby.

All the teams will look to turn their fortunes around in the last few fixtures and avoid the drop to The Vanarama National League.

There are a number of teams that look likely to win promotion to League 2 from The National League.

League Leaders Macclesfield Town look certain to take the trophy, currently sitting 7 points ahead of Tranmere, although Tranmere have a game in hand, sitting in 2nd place.

Aldershot Town and Sutton United are third and fourth after strong seasons and there are five teams in the play-offs just 3 points splitting 4th and 7th. Boreham Wood have recovered from two straight loses with a win at the weekend in 5th place, AFC Fylde who were promoted to the National League last season are 6th and Ebbsfleet are 7th.

Wrexham currently sit outside last play-off position and look like their last results will mean they miss out again, with no wins in their last 5 appearances and just 2 points ahead of 9th place Dover.  The Dragons worries don’t end there, as Ebbsfleet have jumped ahead of them with a game in hand and have been in fine form in recent weeks.
