Alex Morris' assessment of Sky Bet League Two for next season suggests that the league is going to be a much tougher one week-in, week-out than in recent seasons.
With Leyton Orient & big-spending Salford City coming up from the National League & Bradford City, Plymouth Argyle, Scunthorpe United & Walsall dropping down from League One - the division looks like a strong one on all fronts in 2019/20.
Morris told us: “I certainly think it’s going to be a tougher league next year.
“You can’t say for certain, but Leyton Orient are a big club, Salford are going to throw money at it to try & go on another level after four or five quick promotions.
“The teams that have come down are big clubs. Plymouth are a big club, Bradford certainly are a huge club for this league & then you’ve got Walsall & Scunthorpe as well who have both spent many years above League Two.
“It’s going to be a really competitive league, but that’s good for the boys though in one sense because they’re pitting themselves against bigger clubs who you think would have a slightly better quality of player than what we’ve come up against on some occasions this year.
“They’ve got to take that as a real challenge & hopefully that will push everyone on to thrive & do better.”
