I think there is a lot of value to be found in League 2 this year as Bonnyrigg are overbacked. They take the mantle of favourites after recent romps from Cove Rangers and Kelty Hearts but they were differnt beasts. Bonnyrigg have just came up with pretty much their same team and a few more juniors. They will be decent but favourites? Not for me.
Second favourties are Stenhousemuir and very hotly tipped. Got stronger last year and have built on that team with promising signings. A lot of positivity and expectancy there, they are definitely contenders but I have a feeling they may not do quite enough to make the difference to jump straight to top spot from last seasons performance.
Dumbarton won’t be able to turn thngs around quickly enough top bounce back up as champions.
Forfar are possibly the richest team in the division and were strong last year. 6/1 is too big here. They are still a bit short up front but have expecetd signings to make, might depend how they do in the loan market. Definitely worthy of a bet at 6/1.
However Annan just pip them at same price of 6/1. They performed equally well as Forfar last season, and just missed out in the play offs. Although they don’t have the resources Forfar have, they’ve started very strongly in the cup and have the best manager in the division in Peter Murphy who continually yields a competitive side with minimal resources, and progresses a bit year on year. This year they might reach their destination.
Annan for me.
1 point – Annan @ 6/1
