Bradford City v Shrewsbury Town

Shrewsbury Town make the trip to Yorkshire on Saturday where they'll meet Bradford City.

The Shrews were beaten 1-0 by Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend to end a five-game undefeated run, while Phil Parkinson's side triumphed over Gillingham by the same scoreline, extending their own unbeaten run to five.

The two clubs have met on 46 occasions with Shrewsbury coming out on top 21 times compared to the Bantams' 15, and the Shropshire outfit have won four of the last five encounters.

Bristol City v Colchester United

Bristol City will continue their search for a first league win this season when they welcome Colchester United.

The Robins sit just inside the relegation zone with four draws and four losses to their name. They fought back twice against Swindon Town in their most recent outing but it wasn't enough as they eventually lost 3-2.

Joe Dunne's U's have made an indifferent start to the term with two wins, two losses and four draws - one of which came last weekend with a 1-1 stalemate against Crawley Town.

Carlisle United v Notts County

After notching their first win of the campaign last time out, Notts County are hosted by Carlisle United.

Goals from Joss Labadie and Marcus Haber either side of half-time helped the Magpies overcome Tranmere Rovers and take their season's tally to four points, and end a four-game losing streak.

The Cumbrians also won their most recent outing, beating Stevenage 3-1, for their second success on the bounce after failing to win any of their first six league fixtures.

Coventry City v Brentford

In Sunday's 3pm start, Coventry City entertain Brentford after both clubs suffered losses last time out.

The Sky Blues were beaten 3-2 by Port Vale despite taking the lead twice, while Uwe Rosler's men fell 2-0 to leaders Leyton Orient in midweek.

Coventry hold the advantage in previous meetings with 17 successes to the Bees' 14, but Brentford took four points from last season's two encounters.

Crawley Town v Oldham Athletic

Oldham Athletic make the trip to West Sussex where they will meet Crawley Town.

After opening the campaign with two wins in four, the Latics have struggled in recent weeks - they had lost three consecutive games before last weekend's 1-1 draw with Crewe.

At the opposite end of the scale, Crawley Town have won two and drawn two ahead of this Saturday's fixture.

Crewe Alexandra v Gillingham

Gillingham are another side yet to register maximum points this term and they are entertained by Crewe Alexandra.

The bottom of the table Gills have not adapted well to League 1, with three draws and five defeats coming from their eight league outings to date. Three of their five losses have come in their last three games.

Crewe have not fared much be better with just one win and, similarly to Gillingham, they are on a poor run - the Railwaymen haven't won in their last five league matches.

Leyton Orient v Walsall

Leaders Leyton Orient have eight wins from their opening eight Sky Bet League 1 matches and they are at home to Walsall.

Four of their eight wins have come at home, against Shrewsbury Town, Crewe Alexandra, Port Vale and Notts County.

Walsall are seventh and are unbeaten in three. They saw off the challenge of both Crewe and Wolves before drawing with Rotherham last time out.

Milton Keynes Dons v Stevenage

Milton Keynes Dons were defeated for the first time this season last weekend and they face Stevenage.

Karl Robinson's men lost 2-1 at Peterborough United - that result coming after three victories and four draws in their first seven.

Stevenage come into Saturday's match sitting 18th and with only one victory chalked up so far, which came against Notts County on August 24th.

Preston North End v Swindon Town

Preston North End hold one of three undefeated records in Sky Bet League 1 and the Lilywhites host Swindon Town.

Simon Grayson's Preston drew their first four but have won the following four, while Swindon have been inconsistent with three wins, two draws and two defeats to date.

Preston have only tasted victory against Swindon once since 1978 but that came in September of last season when they hammered the Robins 4-1 at Deepdale.

Rotherham United v Peterborough United

Rotherham United and Peterborough United are two of Sky Bet League 1's early front-runners and they go head-to-head at the New York Stadium.

Like Preston, Rotherham also have four wins and four draws on the board, and they lie fifth.

Posh are second having won six of their eight matches. In the last two meetings with the Millers, Peterborough have ran out comfortable winners - 3-1 in January 2008 and 4-1 in the 2010/11 League Cup.

Tranmere Rovers v Port Vale

Tranmere Rovers welcome Port Vale to Prenton Park.

The home side have managed just a single three-point haul so far this term and are leaking goals with their 19 conceded the joint-worst in the division.

Vale are mid-table on 10 points after a solid start to life in League 1 following promotion last term. They will be under the guidance of coach Rob Page when they visit the Wirral with manager Micky Adams recovering from a hip replacement.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Sheffield United

Pre-season promotion contenders Wolves and Sheffield United clash at the Molineux.

While Wolves have begun the season brightly with six wins, one draw and a single loss from their first eight, the Blades have failed to get going and they languish down in 22nd with just one victory so far.

These two teams have come together frequently over the years and it's Sheffield United who hold the narrow advantage with 37 wins compared to Wolves' 35, with 36 meetings ending level.
