Exeter, Northampton, Cheltenham or Colchester? Our Guide To The L2 Play-Offs

Exeter in play-off action in 2018

The League Two play-offs begin tomorrow evening, with Exeter set to host Colchester at 5.15pm, followed by Northampton and Cheltenham.

After much deliberation, we will finally get to see some Real EFL action, after an absence of three months. It might not resumption of the season, but it is sufficient to put us back in front of the television and begin to assess each side’s potential. Will it be Exeter, who have suffered Wembley heartbreak twice in the last three seasons, or can Cheltenham Town make a return to League One for the first time since 2009?

Last year’s play-off winners Tranmere Rovers will be coming back down, having gone through League Two in a single season. However, the four teams making up the current crop have amassed 20 seasons in the basement division or lower between them, with Northampton the ‘newest’ of the sides, having been relegated in 2016/17. It’s been a long, hard slog for all four teams, but which is going to emerge victorious?

Here is our look at the four challengers.
