Bradford City v Sheffield United

Sheffield United make the short trip to Valley Parade on Saturday where they will meet Yorkshire rivals Bradford City.

The Bantams and Blades have four points each from their respective first three Sky Bet League 1 fixtures and will meet in League action for the first time since 2004.

Phil Parkinson's men fell to a 2-1 defeat against Port Vale last time out, while United came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw against Colchester United.

Brentford v Walsall

Two clubs yet to suffer a defeat clash at Griffin Park as Brentford entertain Walsall.

Both teams shared the points in their last outings after 1-1 draws - Farid El Alagui scored late for the Bees to grab a point at Gillingham, while the Saddlers took the lead against Notts County but were unable to hold onto the advantage.

A tight contest is guaranteed if history is anything to go by with no more than one goal separating the sides in their last 10 meetings.

Colchester United v Carlisle United

The weekend's Sky Bet League 1 actions kick-offs with two games on Friday evening, one of which comes from the Weston Homes Community Stadium where Colchester United host Carlisle United.

The Cumbrians have started the season with three losses, scoring one goal and conceding 13, most recently being swept aside by Coventry City 4-0. Joe Dunne's side, meanwhile, are yet to taste defeat having registered seven points from their opening three.

The U's took six points from last season's encounters against Carlisle, with both matches ending 2-0 in the Essex club's favour.

Coventry City v Preston North End

Preston North End have drawn their opening three fixtures and face Coventry City on Sunday hoping to notch their first three-point haul.

Following two successive goalless stalemates against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Rotherham United, North End shared the points with Milton Keynes Dons last weekend in an enthralling 2-2 draw.

The Sky Blues have already cut their points deficit to just four with wins over Bristol City and Carlisle in recent weeks.

Leyton Orient v Crewe Alexandra

Leyton Orient are the early season front-runners in Sky Bet League 1 and they take on Crewe Alexandra.

The O's have opened the season with nine points and nine goals from three outings, while Crewe notched their first win of the campaign last time out, beating Tranmere Rovers 2-1.

Both meetings between the sides last term ended level at 1-1.

Milton Keynes Dons v Bristol City

Sky Bet League 1 life hasn't been kind to Bristol City on their return but they will be hoping to turn that around this Saturday when they travel to Milton Keynes Dons.

Following relegation from the Championship last term, the Robins head to stadiummk with one point from their three matches, after losses against Wolves and Gillingham following an opening day 2-2 draw with Bradford.

The Dons have fared better so far, taking five points from the nine on offer - draws against Preston and, most recently, Shrewsbury Town have accompanied a 1-0 victory over Crewe Alexandra.

Notts County v Stevenage

Stevenage are one of only two teams in Sky Bet League 1 without a point to their name after three matches and they visit Notts County, who remain without a victory.

Graham Westley's men may have lost all of their matches, to Oldham Athletic, Swindon Town and Leyton Orient, but each defeat was only by a single goal.

The Magpies, on the other hand, were defeated by Sheffield United and Peterborough United before picking up their first point last time out against Walsall.

Oldham Athletic v Port Vale

Oldham Athletic and Port Vale haven't met since the 2007/08 League 1 season but this weekend they go head-to-head at Boundary Park.

It was Oldham who were victorious in the last encounter between the two, winning 3-0, but they will do well to replicate that result after two defeats in their last two games.

Vale chalked up their first three-point haul of the campaign last Saturday by beating fellow League 1 new boys Bradford City, which left them with four points going into this weekend's game with the Latics.

Rotherham United v Shrewsbury Town

Rotherham United and Shrewsbury enjoyed positive outings last Saturday, both notching their first wins of the season, and now meet at the New York Stadium.

The Millers were 2-1 winners against manager Steve Evans' former club Crawley Town, while the visiting Shrews recorded an impressive 2-0 triumph against Swindon Town.

Evans' men will hope recent history doesn't repeat itself in this fixture - the South Yorkshire club haven't come out on top against Shrewsbury in the last 10 meetings between the two, stretching back to 2007.

Swindon Town v Gillingham

The two most recent champions of League 2 meet at the County Ground on Saturday as Swindon Town welcome Gillingham.

Swindon romped to the League 2 title in 2011/12 and then made the Play-Offs last term in League 1, but have started this season slowly with two defeats and a draw from their opening three.

The Gills won the League 2 championship last term to be promoted and they are still awaiting their first victory, with their only point of the campaign so far coming last time out against promotion-hopefuls Brentford.

Tranmere Rovers v Peterborough United

Peterborough United have nine points from their first three games and take their momentum to Tranmere Rovers on Saturday.

The Posh sit alongside Leyton Orient at the summit of the Sky Bet League 1 table after victories against Swindon, Notts County and Oldham.

They will be confident, too, against a Tranmere team who have just a single point on the board so far, which came from a thrilling 3-3 draw with Crawley Town in their most recent match at Prenton Park.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Crawley Town

There's a Football League first at the Molineux on Friday night as Wolverhampton Wanderers meet Crawley Town for the first time ever, and it's live on Sky Sports.

While Wolves have struggled in recent seasons, suffering successive relegations, Crawley have climbed the divisions to establish themselves in The Football League, and they have begun this term with a win, a draw and a loss.

Kenny Jackett's Wolves have started better than the Red Devils and remain unbeaten following a draw and two victories - the most recent coming away at Bristol City.
