Bradford City v Colchester United

Bradford City entertain Colchester United aiming for their first win over the U's since 1982.

The two sides have met five times since the Bantams' 2-1 win during the 1981/82 Division 4 season with three ending level and Colchester triumphing in the most recent two.

Phil Parkinson's men beat Brentford 4-0 last time out courtesy of a James Hanson brace along with goals from Nahki Wells and Garry Thompson, to maintain their 100 per cent home record. Colchester have had an inconsistent start to the campaign, with two wins, two draws and two losses.

Bristol City v Peterborough United

Peterborough United are hosted at Ashton Gate by Bristol City who are yet to register a victory.

A four-game winning streak to start the season lifted Posh towards the top end of the table, but they've dropped points in their last two outings, losing 2-0 against Crawley Town and, most recently, drawing 2-2 with Crewe Alexandra.

Sean O'Driscoll's side come into the fixture sitting 20th in the table after two losses and three draws. The Robins will take confidence from their record against Posh, however, having won 23 of the 42 encounters, compared to Peterborough's 13 victories.

Carlisle United v Sheffield United

Carlisle United start life without Greg Abbott by welcoming Sheffield United to Brunton Park.

The Cumbrians will be led into the fixture by caretaker manager Graham Kavanagh after 49-year-old Abbott was relieved from his duties following a poor opening the season, in which United picked up just two points from six matches.

Since Sheffield United beat Notts County 2-1 in the season's curtain-raiser, they have picked up just one point, from a 1-1 draw with Colchester four games ago.

Coventry City v Gillingham

After wiping out their 10-point deduction last weekend, Coventry City meet winless Gillingham in Sunday's 3:00pm start.

A Callum Wilson brace - his seventh and eighth league goals this term - helped the Sky Blues overcome Colchester 2-0 in their last fixture, taking their points tally into the positives and lifting them off the foot of the table.

Gillingham have struggled to adapt to life in Sky Bet League 1 after promotion from League 2 last season, drawing with Brentford, Swindon Town and Bristol City and losing against Colchester, Wolves and, most recently, Crawley Town.

Crawley Town v Shrewsbury Town

Shrewsbury have had an indifferent start to the campaign and they travel to Crawley Town.

Graham Turner's side have six points from their five League games, while the Red Devils have triumphed in their last two outings - 2-0 over Peterborough United and 3-2 against Gillingham, to sit seventh in the table.

The Shrews took four points from last season's two encounters against Crawley, drawing 2-2 in December before a Tom Eaves hat-trick lifted them to a 3-0 success in the reverse fixture.

Crewe Alexandra v Walsall

Crewe Alexandra and Walsall are both without a win in their last three games and they meet at the Alexandra Stadium.

Steve Davis' Alex have registered just one win and two draws in their opening six fixtures - conceding 14 goals - while the Saddlers notched two wins in their first two matches of the campaign before drawing against Notts County and losing to Brentford and Preston North End, without scoring.

Walsall hold the historical advantage having won 30 meetings between the sides compared to Crewe's 21, but the Railwaymen have the recent bragging rights as they are unbeaten in their last eight encounters with the Saddlers.

Leyton Orient v Port Vale

Sky Bet League 1 leaders Leyton Orient have five wins from five and entertain Port Vale on Saturday.

Russell Slade's men have overcome Carlisle United, Shrewsbury Town, Stevenage, Crewe Alexandra and, most recently, Colchester, to record their best-ever start to a season.

Port Vale will be out to stop the O's this weekend and they were victorious in the most recent meeting between the two, winning 2-1 at Vale Park in a League 1 meeting in 2008.

Milton Keynes Dons v Notts County

Notts County remain without a victory in Sky Bet League 1 this term and visit Milton Keynes Dons.

Chris Kiwomya's Magpies have only chalked up one point so far - from a draw against Walsall - and have fallen to the foot of the table after Coventry wiped out their 10-point deduction to move onto positive points.

Karl Robinson's Dons have only won twice but they remain unbeaten with their other four games ending level. They have good historical form against County, too, being defeated by the Magpies just once in the 10 meetings played.

Preston North End v Stevenage

Stevenage manager Graham Westley returns to former club Preston North End this weekend.

Westley originally left Stevenage for Preston in January 2012 but, after his sacking at Deepdale 13 months later, he returned to the Lamex Stadium for his third stint with the Hertfordshire club.

The Lilywhites have made a good start to this term under Simon Grayson and remain unbeaten, while Westley's Stevenage have just one win from their first six, but are undefeated in three.

Rotherham United v Oldham Athletic

Rotherham United are flying high in fourth and welcome the visit of Oldham Athletic.

Steve Evans' Millers saw off the challenge of South Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United last time out and that took them to 12 points after three wins and three draws.

Oldham have won twice and lost their other four, including their most recent match, at Preston.

Tranmere Rovers v Brentford

Brentford travel to lowly Tranmere Rovers having suffered their first defeat of the campaign last weekend.

Last season's beaten Play-Off Finalists went down 4-0 to Bradford City following three draws and two wins in their opening five games.

Tranmere mixed it at the summit for the majority of last term but have struggled to get going this time around - they've won just once so far - but they haven't lost to the Bees in their most recent four meetings.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Swindon Town

In-form Wolverhampton Wanderers welcome the visit of Mark Cooper's Swindon Town.

Wolves drew on the first day of the campaign but have since improved to record four successive victories, most recently against Port Vale.

Swindon's start has been somewhat indifferent with Cooper's men picking up two wins, two draws and two defeats. They are unbeaten in three.
