Running an eye over Oldham Athletic29-12-2020

The low-down on Carlisle Utd.16-12-2020

Carlisle had a disappointing 18th place finish in League 2 in the Covid affected 2019/20 season. This led to a new manager (Chris Beech), a raft of new player signings and a new playing system. Early signs weren’t good, as Carlisle lost their first 3 games. Since then, the club have found their feet and Read More…

We welcome Cambridge United to The innocent New Lawn for this clash of 3rd place against 7th in League 2. The U’s sit 4 points behind Rovers with a game in hand.

Newport County AFC27-11-2020

Newport sit top of the table ahead of their visit to the Innocent New Lawn. They are 4 points ahead of Rovers with a game in hand.

Because it’s Saturday11-11-2020

FGR supporters will almost certainly enjoy this book in their Christmas stockings!!

Will The Stags have a managerial bounce?11-11-2020

Mansfield are 22nd in League 2 without a win so far this season, having drawn 7 and lost 4 of their games. But the appointment of a new manager in the last week may well improve their fortunes. With 14 England caps, and over 600 appearances at the top level (with 131 goals), Nigel Clough Read More…

Bradford are the only professional English team to wear claret and amber, colours they have worn since they were formed in 1903 (they are the same colours as Motherwell in Scotland).
