League Two managers on the brinkNpower League Two often gets overlooked by elements of the media, but it does features several clubs that used to run at the highest footballing level in the country; Oxford United used to be in the top flight back in early nineties, when it was simply known as the First Division. Several other sides in the League such as Stockport and Crewe have featured in the Championship.

We will take a quick look two of the leagues managers that will need a cardboard box next to their desks, ready for when the inevitable happens.

Paul Simpson - Stockport County
Paul Simpson the current boss of Stockport County took over from Gary Ablett who was sacked following the sides disastrous 2009/10 season, which saw The Hatters relegated from League One to League Two after winning just 5 games out of 46 league matches. His task upon taking over the side was ensure their survival in League Two, however they are currently at odds of 7/4 with bookmaker Paddy Power to be relegated out of the football League.

After playing 18 games Stockport are now hovering near the bottom of the league on just 19 points from 18 games and have lost their 2 of their last 3 games, the last result saw the Hatters thrashed 5-0 away by League leaders Port Vale.

Mark Stimson - Barnet
Currently Barnet find themselves in the relegation zone of League Two in 23rd place just above Hereford and are the favourite team to be relegated from the division with the bookies Bet365 given them odds of 11/8 to go down. Mark Stimson took over the reigns from former Barnet player Ian Hendon who was sacked after the Bees were almost relegated in the 2009/10 season. He has managed to win just one of their last 3 league matches, although it was a very respectable 4-1 against Northampton Town.
