Bradford City v Carlisle United

Bradford City's Capital One Cup venture was brought to an end in the First Round this season, after losing to Huddersfield Town in midweek, and they will now turn their attentions back to Sky Bet League 1 when they host Carlisle United on Saturday.

Phil Parkinson's men began their campaign with a respectable draw away at Bristol City and this weekend will want to get off to a winning start at home to the Cumbrians.

Carlisle, meanwhile, will certainly want an improvement after a 5-1 mauling on the opening day at the hands of Leyton Orient. Greg Abbott's men did beat Blackburn Rovers in the Capital One Cup in midweek, however, and that should give them a boost ahead of the weekend's league fixture.

Brentford v Sheffield United

Brentford and Sheffield United both lost out in last season's League 1 Play-Offs and they meet at Griffin Park on Saturday.

The travelling Blades were beaten by Yeovil Town in the semi-finals, who then overcame the Bees in the Final at Wembley, and both of these sides will be eager for a victory on Saturday.

Sheffield United got off to a winning start against Notts County, while Brentford drew with Port Vale, so the two teams will be looking to preserve their respective unbeaten starts to the season.

Colchester United v Port Vale

Colchester United saw off last season's League 2 champions Gillingham on the opening weekend and now face another team that were promoted alongside the Gills from League 2 - Port Vale.

The U's avoided relegation last term by the narrowest of margins but got off to a positive start this time around with Andrew Bond scoring a late winner at the Priestfield against the Gills, while the Valiants picked up a valuable point against promotion-hopefuls Brentford.

Both sides come into this fixture after losses in the Capital One Cup, however - Colchester losing 5-1 to Peterborough United and Vale going down 2-1 to Walsall.

Coventry City v Bristol City

Coventry City's season has started with two 3-2 defeats on the road, against Crawley Town in League 1, and Leyton Orient in the Capital One Cup.

They face Bristol City on Sunday, a side who have also netted twice in their opening matches but fared better with a 2-2 draw at home to new boys Bradford City last weekend followed by a 2-0 success over Gillingham in Tuesday's Capital One Cup Round 1 tie.

Familiar foes in the Championship over recent seasons, this will be first time the sides have met in the third tier of English football since October 1963. With 20 wins each in all meetings and 21 draws, historically there is very little between the teams.

Leyton Orient v Shrewsbury Town

Spirits will be high in the Leyton Orient camp after two wins in a week and they entertain Shrewsbury Town in their first home match of the season.

The O's triumphed 5-1 in Cumbria against Carlisle on the first day of the campaign and then beat Coventry City in the Capital One Cup by the odd goal in five, so will be confident. Russell Slade may be without defender Nathan Clarke and attacker Shaun Batt, however.

Graham Turner's Shrews drew a blank at home to Milton Keynes Dons last Saturday but will want to start well on the road, and look to improve their away win tally from last term which ended at four.

Milton Keynes Dons v Crewe Alexandra

Milton Keynes Dons and Crewe Alexandra both picked up a point on the first day of the Sky Bet League 1 season and this weekend they clash at stadiummk.

The Dons drew with Shrewsbury, while Steve Davis' Crewe played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Rotherham United, so these two teams, who finished just outside the Play-Offs last term, are still awaiting their first three-point hauls.

Mathias Pogba, Crewe's top scorer from last season, is expected to be out for four months with a knee injury and Byron Moore is a doubt. Karl Robinson will also be without one of his key men after news emerged that Daniel Powell will miss over two months with ankle ligament damage.

Notts County v Peterborough United

Peterborough United are another side to record two wins in the first week of the season and they visit Notts County on Saturday hoping to make it three.

Posh overcame Swindon Town 1-0 at London Road last weekend and followed that up with a resounding 5-1 beating of Colchester, so Darren Ferguson's men will approach the second weekend of the season in full flow.

Notts County didn't get off to the best of starts in the league, losing 2-1 to Sheffield United in the season's curtain-raiser, but will hope for more this time around, particularly after a midweek success against Fleetwood Town in the Capital One Cup.

In 12 meetings since 2002, County have only managed to register three points against Peterborough on one occasion.

Oldham Athletic v Walsall

The highest-scoring League 1 game on the opening weekend of the season involved Oldham Athletic as they triumphed 4-3 at Stevenage and this weekend the Latics host Walsall, who were also winners last Saturday.

Lee Johnson's men will be in high spirits after that victory at the Lamex Stadium as the three points looked to have slipped away when Stevenage equalised in the 84th minute, before Jose Baxter slotted home a last-gasp penalty three minutes later.

The Saddlers were comfortable 3-1 victors at home to Tranmere Rovers and that continued their impressive form from back-end of last season, which they will be keen to maintain at Boundary Park.

Rotherham United v Preston North End

Rotherham United and Preston North End both enjoyed victories in the Capital One Cup in midweek and now face each other at the New York Stadium, which will be hosting League 1 football for the first time ever.

The Millers triumphed 2-1 against Sheffield Wednesday, while Preston beat near-neighbours, and fierce rivals, Blackpool 1-0. The two sides' results from the opening round of matches in the League were also similar as both picked up a point each; they will now be aiming to notch their first win of the campaign this time around.

Steve Evans is likely to be without Daniel Nardiello, while Lee Frecklington, who has scored three goals in the Millers' two games so far this season, is a doubt.

Swindon Town v Stevenage

A narrow 1-0 defeat for Swindon Town on the opening day away at Peterborough United was followed by a Capital One Cup win by the same scoreline on home soil against Torquay United in midweek, and they entertain Stevenage.

Stevenage also progressed in the League Cup, and caused one of the upsets of Round 1 in the process, beating Ipswich Town 2-0 at the Lamex. Like their hosts, this was their first success of the campaign having lost by one goal on the opening day; Oldham Athletic pipped them to the points in a seven-goal thriller, courtesy of a penalty three minutes from time.

This will be only the fifth ever meeting between the two teams, and third in league competition having met for the first time at this level last season. Swindon were comfortable winners on both occasions with 4-0 and 3-0 victories.

Tranmere Rovers v Crawley Town

Tranmere Rovers started the season with a 3-1 defeat at home to Walsall on the opening day but bounced back with a 2-0 win over League new boys Mansfield Town in the Capital One Cup.

Their visitors this weekend, Crawley Town, have also started the new season with a win and defeat, but in reverse. They enjoyed a 3-2 success over Coventry City last weekend but found themselves defeated by the odd goal in seven, after extra-time, by League 2 side Cheltenham Town on Tuesday. The Red Devils had led 3-1 with 25 minutes of normal time remaining.

Like Swindon Town and Stevenage, the sides meet for only the third time in league competition. They faced each other last season for the first time ever, with Rovers coming out on top in both matches.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Gillingham

Wolves were another team to exit the Capital One Cup at the first hurdle this week. In one of the shocks of the round, Ryan Williams' 84th-minute goal for League 2 side Morecambe proved the difference at the Globe Arena. That defeat had followed an opening day goalless draw away to Preston North End.

Separated last season by two divisions, League 2 champions Gillingham will be the visitors to Molineux on Saturday, keen to pick up the form that saw that win half of all the league matches they played last season, and claim three points for first time this term

They were defeated 1-0 at home to Colchester United on their return to this level last Saturday, and bowed out of the Capital One Cup with a 2-0 defeat at Priestfield against Bristol City on Tuesday.
