Bristol City v Wolverhampton Wanderers

Two teams who fell through the Championship trap door last term meet at Ashton Gate in Sky Bet League 1 action as Bristol City host Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Robins were defeated 5-4 in an enthralling match with Coventry City in their last outing while Wolves comfortably beat Gillingham 4-0 courtesy of a Leigh Griffiths brace and strikes from Lee Evans and Bakary Sako.

Wolves have the upper hand in recent encounters between the two having not lost any of the previous 10. The Robins' last win against the Molineux outfit came back in 1993. Saturday's meeting will be the first outside of the second tier of English football since 1989.

Carlisle United v Coventry City

The two sides that occupy the bottom two places of Sky Bet League 1 meet as Coventry City travel to Brunton Park to play Carlisle United.

The Cumbrians lost by four goals in the opening two matches of the season so will be eager to make amends in front of a home crowd this weekend.

Steven Pressley's side started the season with a 10-point deduction but have cut that to seven after last Sunday's entertaining win over Bristol City, which will give them something to build on.

Crawley Town v Rotherham United

Steve Evans will return to familiar surroundings this weekend as the Rotherham United boss takes his team to face Crawley Town at the Broadfield Stadium.

The 50-year-old led the Red Devils to the 2010/11 Conference title but is returning to the club for the first time since making the move to the Millers in April 2012.

Evans' men have opened the season with successive draws - 3-3 at Crewe Alexandra and a goalless stalemate against Preston North End, which was the first ever competitive scoreless draw at the New York Stadium - while Crawley overcame Coventry 3-2 on the first day of the campaign before sharing the points with Tranmere Rovers last weekend, drawing 3-3.

Crewe Alexandra v Tranmere Rovers

Crewe Alexandra and Tranmere Rovers have both taken a solitary point from their respective first two outings and they meet at the Alexandra Stadium on Saturday.

Rovers opened the season with a 3-1 defeat at Walsall but, courtesy of a Joe Thompson brace and a late Ryan Lowe goal, drew 3-3 with Crawley Town to open their account for the campaign.

Crewe, on the other hand, lost 1-0 at Milton Keynes Dons last time out but picked up a point on the first day of the season in an entertaining 3-3 draw against Rotherham United.

Gillingham v Brentford

Gillingham are one of four teams yet to gain a point in Sky Bet League 1 but will be aiming to get off the mark when they host Brentford at the Priestfield Stadium on Saturday.

The Gills fell 4-0 to Wolves last time out, a week after losing 1-0 to Colchester United on the opening day of the new campaign.

Meanwhile, Brentford, who are one of the bookmakers' early favourites for promotion, have four points under their belt after a 1-1 draw at Port Vale and, most recently, a 3-1 success over Sheffield United.

Peterborough United v Oldham Athletic

Peterborough United have acclimatised to League 1 football well with two wins from two matches and they entertain Oldham Athletic this weekend.

Posh were relegated from the Championship on the final day of the last season but have responded well to score five goals and take six points from two League games this term. Darren Ferguson's side went behind at Notts County in their most recent outing but fought back with strikes from Tommy Rowe, Tyrone Barnett, Grant McCann and Britt Assombalonga to win 4-2.

After preserving their League 1 status with a strong end to last term, the Latics opened the campaign with a 4-3 win over Stevenage courtesy of a late Jose Baxter penalty, but lost by a single goal against Walsall last weekend.

Port Vale v Bradford City

Two of last season's promoted sides from League 2 clash at Vale Park on Saturday with Bradford City visiting Port Vale.

The Bantams beat Northampton Town in May's League 2 Play-Off Final and have seemingly taken League 1 in their stride, opening the campaign with a 2-2 draw against Bristol City followed by a 4-0 triumph over Carlisle United.

Port Vale also begun the season with a draw, 1-1 against Brentford, but lost 1-0 at Colchester United last weekend to leave them with a single point going into this weekend's fixtures.

Preston North End v Milton Keynes Dons

Preston North End are one of only two teams in Sky Bet League 1 to draw their opening two fixtures and their next task is a home match against Milton Keynes Dons.

North End are yet to score, or concede, with both of their games - against Wolves and Rotherham United - ending goalless.

The Dons' two matches have also produced minimal goals - just the one to be precise - as they drew on the opening day against Shrewsbury Town and then beat Crewe Alexandra by a single Patrick Bamford goal last time out.

Sheffield United v Colchester United

Colchester United have made a bright start to the Sky Bet League 1 season with two wins from two but this weekend they face their most challenging test yet, against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

Joe Dunne's U's have triumphed 1-0 in both of their matches so far, against League 1 new boys Gillingham and Port Vale, but, on Saturday, come up against a club they have only beaten once since 1982.

Sheffield United begun their campaign with a victory against Notts County but lost at promotion rivals Brentford last time out.

Shrewsbury Town v Swindon Town

Shrewsbury Town will go in search of their first win, and goal, of this season on Saturday at home to Swindon Town.

The Shrews were held to a goalless draw by Milton Keynes Dons on the first day of the campaign and lost comprehensively at Leyton Orient last Saturday, falling to a 3-0 defeat.

While the Shrews were struggling against the O's, Swindon registered their first victory of the campaign, against Stevenage.

Stevenage v Leyton Orient

Stevenage remain point-less following that defeat to Swindon and they host Shrewsbury's conquerors from last weekend, Leyton Orient.

Graham Westley's side's loss against Swindon came seven days after a thrilling 4-3 home defeat to Oldham Athletic, which was a huge blow having fought back from 3-1 down.

David Mooney was at the double for the O's last time out against the Shrews and that home victory left Russell Slade's men top of the table on six points and a healthy goal difference.

Walsall v Notts County

Walsall have made a positive start to their Sky Bet League 1 campaign and have six points from their opening two matches - this weekend they entertain Notts County.

Dean Smith's team have carried on their solid end-of-season form from last term to register victories against Tranmere Rovers and Oldham Athletic, to begin the season sitting towards the top of the table.

County are at the other end of the division, however, and will be searching for their first points. Chris Kiwomya's men have lost to both Sheffield United and Peterborough United.
