Luton – 5/6

After reaching the Play-Offs last season, Luton are out to go one better following a decent summer in which manager Nathan Jones has bolstered his squad in terms of depth with the additions of Carlton Morris, Alfie Doughty and others.

A great way for the Hatters to kick-off their campaign would be to avenge the 5-0 defeat in this fixture last season, not to mention the 3-0 loss at Birmingham in the return fixture.

Blues have appointed a good coach in John Eustace and have some promising teenage talents, but it’s been a summer of turbulence and there are still more questions than answers.

With the five substitutes rule coming in this season, Luton’s extra depth could make a real difference: especially if Allan Campbell in midfield and Elijah Adebayo in attack start the game as hoped.

Peterborough – 13/10

Peterborough finished last season as a reasonable Championship side: their form from Grant McCann’s late-February appointment ranked them 16th in that timeframe.

The Posh’s relegation was largely down to poor fitness for two-thirds of that campaign, but with the sports science aspect revolutionized under McCann, that won’t be an issue.

The PU5 outfit are boosted, too, by the signing of winger David Ajiboye from Sutton, and they’ve retained their own top talents like England Under-19s European Championship winner, Ronnie Edwards.

Peterborough look well-placed, therefore, to make an immediate assault on the top of this league, while it could be a difficult campaign for Cheltenham.

The Robins have lost legendary manager Michael Duff and are hoping Wade Elliott, appointed internally, can provide the continuity.

Town have also lost key men Will Boyle, Callum Wright and Kion Etete, so if they only finished a few places lower than last season and avoided a relegation battle, it would be a good season.

With Peterborough, Barnsley and Portsmouth up first, it looks a demanding start.

Wycombe – 3/4

Wycombe achieved a top six finish last year and are hoping to be in the mix once again, after a quiet summer.

The Chairboys have not signed many players, bar goalkeeper Nathan Bishop from Manchester United, but the man he replaced, David Stockdale, and stalwart defender Anthony Stewart are the only big-hitters leaving Adams Park.

Wanderers won 10 of their 13 hostings of sides below 11th last season, drawing with Wimbledon, Shrewsbury and Cheltenham, so are rightly odds-on to beat a Burton side expected to be among the strugglers.

The Brewers struggled for creativity in open play last season and weren’t exactly a great defensive side either, conceding 67 goals, and they’ll need to fix at least one of those problems to return from Buckinghamshire unscathed.

Northampton – 4/6

Northampton were cruelly denied promotion on the final day of last season, missing out to Bristol Rovers by virtue of one goal scored, but that pain will ease if they start this season on the right track.

Jon Brady’s side have added promotion-winning knowhow to their ranks with the acquisitions of striker Danny Hylton and goalkeeper Lee Burge, both having excellent pedigree for the level.

The Cobblers have strengthened their midfield, too, with the additions of Ben Fox from Grimsby and Marc Leonard on loan from Brighton enhancing the competition, with Shaun McWilliams and Jack Sowerby also in the mix.

Teyn won 3-0 in this fixture last season and are hoping for a similar outcome this time around, after their opponents endured a tough summer including the losses of Brendan Wiredu and Shamal George.

Northampton are the popular pick for promotion this season and Colchester, for relegation, so if neutral perception counts for anything, there’ll only be one winner.

Stockport – 11/20

After making their long-awaited Football League return, Stockport County are back with confidence and ambition.

The Hatters have an excellent manager in Dave Challinor, who has won seven promotions in his non-league managerial career, a record he intends to transfer into the EFL.

Challinor has been backed heavily with the additions of defender Fraser Horsfall, who was among the best in the division last season, and midfielder Callum Camps, who has previously thrived in the one above.

There should be an electric atmosphere at Edgeley Park for Stockport’s first game back in the league for the welcome of Barrow, who are hoping for modest progression this season under Pete Wild.

The Bluebirds should be safe this year, but Stockport are likely to grab the three points on Saturday.
