Chesterfield out to 1/1 for title as cracks start to appear

| 02.02.2011

Northampton and Crewe Alexandra may have played out the game of the night in League Two last night, but bottom club Stockport’s point with league leaders Chesterfield was the result of the night.

Three draws in their last four games has seen Chesterfield’s lead at the top of League Two cut to just five points, and John Sheridan’s side are now 1/1 to win League Two as the chasing pack continue to make up ground.

Wycombe Wanderers took all three points at Cheltenham and are now 5/2 to win the league and looking like the main contenders to Chesterfield.

Rotherham’s defeat away to Port Vale has left them 10 points adrift of Chesterfield back in third and has seen their league two odds drift out to 10/1 to win the league.

Vale are back in the automatic promotion race and thanks to the three points last night they are now just a point behind Rotherham.

But a title shot seems a distant dream with Jim Gannon’s side as big as 20/1 to win league two despite being level on points with Bury who are 16/1 to win League Two after defeating Macclesfield 4-2 last night.

A brace from Bury’s Ryan Lowe has seen him move within one goal of Adam Le Fondre at the top of the goalscoring charts, and Lowe is 4/1 to win the League Two golden boot with Le Fondre still the favourite at 6/4.

Despite their win over Burton Albion last night, Shrewsbury have dropped down to seventh and are as big as 20/1 to win League Two.
