The final episode of the Punters Lounge podcast series taking a look at the upcoming EFL season is here. Check out what host Darran Pearce and Football League expert Gab Sutton had to say about their League Two outright predictions for 2023/24. Are they backing Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney to continue their charge up the Football League system with yet another promotion with Wrexham? Or will the Red Dragons fall just short?
“[Macaulay Langstaff] certainly proved he’s [capable of making the step up to League Two]. It’s his movement. His movement off the ball is absolutely superb as well as, obviously, his finishing. But his movement to create the moves… I really hope that he can prove that he’s up to the Football League level.” – Darran
Notts County to Win League Two @ 7/1 with William Hill promo code
“[Stockport County] have got a strong deep squad there. Lots of proven players at the level. They’ve added Nick Powell as well who’d be a decent Championship player let alone League Two. So they’ve done incredibly well to get him. Yeah, I think we’re looking at serious contenders there.” – Gab
Stockport County to Get Promoted @ 11/10 with Betfred promo code
“When [Pete Wild] came in, they rose 11 places last season. Again on one of the lower budgets in the league. And so this is the manager who in three of his full four full seasons in management has massively exceeded expectations. And I think if you massively exceed expectation with a side that finished 9th, the season before, I think you’re pretty close to automatic promotion, you know, and I think they’ve got a stronger squad than last season. I think they’ve got a centre forward in Jamie Proctor who can win the physical battles… and they signed David Worrall, who was outstanding for Port Vale, who can bring a different layer of creativity.” – Gab
Barrow to be Promoted @ 10/1 with BetVictor promo code
“I think there’s a lot of chaos and instability at Crawley. I’m not sure about WAGMI United and whether they’ve got the right intentions for the football club so I think that remains to be seen. Only just stayed up last season and I feel like their squad has been weakened so I’m certainly worried about Crawley.” – Gab
Crawley Town to be Relegated @ 11/4 with 888Sport
“I’m not sure about Newport. I think they’ve lost a lot of their key defenders and then I think, for them, the question is whether they keep with [striker] Omar Bogle who scored 17 goals last season. Can he repeat the trick? I’m not 100% sure he’s going to do that. So that’s why I’m a little bit cautious about Newport.” – Gab
