Wycombe goalkeeper Nikki Bull believes promotion from League Two is up for grabs this season with as many as 16 sides in the frame.
Steve Evans' Rotherham, Bradford and Gillingham are among the bookmakers' favourites, but Bull feels less fancied teams are also in with a shout of finishing in the top three.
He told the Bucks Free Press: "I would imagine in League Two this season there's 15 or 16 managers thinking realistically they can go up.
"That's my thoughts as well. I look through the table and I see 12 to 16 teams that are capable of promotion.
"It's going to be one hell of a battle. It's going to be tight, but then again it was two years ago. The club's in a different position to where it was two seasons ago. We've got to go out there and see how the season unravels."
