Crawley are the clear favourites to win the division at their first attempt Saturday’s win for Stevenage against Torquay United in the play-off final finalised next season’s League Two line-up and the bookmakers have already marked out a clear favourite to lift the title in May 2012. Despite embarking on their first ever season in the Football League, Crawley Town are only 7/2 shots to win the division at their first attempt, a price that reflects the financial resources expected to be available to manager Steve Evans. Evans has already begun his squad strengthening, signing Bristol City striker John Akinde and winger Jamie Day from Rushden & Diamonds. He said: "We are going about our business nicely. "We said that the additions would largely be players who have performed at a higher level, are very hungry for success and in the main young." Gary Johnson’s Northampton are given a 12/1 quote to win the league.
