Stockport County start life back in the EFL with a home match against Barrow in League Two.

Fellow promoted side Grimsby visit Leyton Orient after going up out of the National League at the first attempt.

Last season’s beaten play-off finalists Mansfield make the trip to Salford on opening day while Northampton, who missed out on automatic promotion on goals scored, host Colchester.

The season will begin on Saturday, 30 July.

Like League One, the fourth tier will continue as normal during the World Cup in Qatar through November and December.

Elsewhere on the opening day, Mark Hughes’ Bradford welcome Yorkshire rivals Doncaster, who were relegated from League One last season.

Two of 2021-22’s relegated sides face off as AFC Wimbledon play host to Gillingham, while Crewe, the fourth side to drop into League Two, visit Rochdale.
