Brentford v Rotherham United

After losing for the first time this season last weekend, Rotherham United visit Brentford.

The Millers lost 1-0 at home to Peterborough United and that result came after they had opened the campaign with four wins and four draws.

Brentford aren't far behind Steve Evans' men - the Bees have four wins, three draws and two defeats to date. They overcame Coventry City 2-0 last Sunday.

Colchester United v Wolverhampton Wanderers

Colchester United are fast becoming Sky Bet League 1's draw specialists and they host Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The U's have drawn five of their nine games, including the last three. They begun the season with two victories, against Gillingham and Port Vale, but haven't notched a three-point haul since.

Wolves are third with seven victories to date. They are unbeaten on their travels and did the double over Colchester when the two clubs were in the Championship during the 2007/08 season.

Gillingham v Milton Keynes Dons

Gillingham's wait for a victory ended last Saturday and they entertain Milton Keynes Dons this time around.

Martin Allen's men halted a run of three successive defeats by beating Crewe 3-0 last weekend and that was their first three-pointer in League 1, following promotion last term.

The Dons also recorded a three-goal margin of victory in their most recent outing, seeing off Stevenage 4-1, which left them sixth on 16 points.

Notts County v Crewe Alexandra

Crewe will be after their first victory against Notts County for 16 years when they travel to Meadow Lane.

The Alex haven't got the better of the Magpies since a 1-0 win during the 1996/97 Division Two campaign, with four of the last six meetings ending the way of County, and the other two finishing level.

The two teams have just one victory apiece so far this term, with both notching their only wins against Tranmere. Crewe are two points better off having drawn three, to County's one stalemate.

Oldham Athletic v Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient remain at the summit of the division despite failing to win last time out - they meet Oldham this Saturday.

Russell Slade's O's couldn't make it nine wins from nine as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Walsall, and that reduced their lead at the top to three points, meaning they could be knocked off their perch this weekend.

Oldham have failed to impress so far and lie 16th with two wins, one draw and six defeats. They have lost four of their last five.

Peterborough United v Preston North End

Peterborough United are the team leading the chase to catch Orient at the top and they welcome Preston North End.

Posh chalked up their third win on the bounce last time out but face a Preston team who have won their last five and remain unbeaten this term.

The match will give Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson a chance to renew acquaintances with the club he managed between January and December of 2010, before being dismissed from Deepdale and re-appointed at London Road in January 2011.

Port Vale v Bristol City

Bristol City are now the only team in Sky Bet League 1 without a win, and they are on the road to Port Vale.

The Robins have drawn five and lost four of their nine matches so far this season, leaving them down in 19th. Vale have adapted well to life in League 1 and are 11th with 13 points on the board.

It's City who have the upper hand in recent meetings between these two clubs - the Ashton Gate outfit have won all of the last five clashes, not losing to Port Vale since August 2004.

Sheffield United v Crawley Town

All of the weekend's action in Sky Bet League 1 gets under way on Friday night, with Sheffield United hosting Crawley Town in a 7:45pm kick-off.

The Blades slumped to the bottom of the division after the last round of matches as they lost their sixth consecutive game, 2-0 to Wolves. Their four points so far have come from a victory against Notts County on the opening day, and a draw with Colchester.

Crawley are eighth with 15 points. They saw off the challenge of Oldham 1-0 last time out and that extended their unbeaten run to five games.

Shrewsbury Town v Carlisle United

Life under Graham Kavanagh has begun well for Carlisle United and their next assignment is at Shrewsbury Town.

The former midfielder took over the Cumbrians in a caretaker capacity but was given the job on a permanent basis after guiding them to three wins on the spin and up to 14th.

The Shrews are one place below United, in 15th, and come into the match following two successive defeats. Their four matches prior to the two losses ended level, so they are winless in six.

Stevenage v Coventry City

Stevenage continue to struggle and host Coventry City.

Graham Westley's side looked to have turned a corner with a victory and two draws but, since then, they have suffered three defeats on the bounce, most recently at MK Dons.

Coventry's blistering form has also come to a standstill with recent defeats to Port Vale and Brentford coming after an unbeaten spell of six games.

Swindon Town v Tranmere Rovers

Swindon Town remain Sky Bet League 1's inconsistent side and they are at home to struggling Tranmere Rovers.

Mark Cooper's troops suffered their fourth loss of the campaign last time out, to Preston, with three of their other nine matches ending in their favour and the other two finishing level.

Tranmere have been defeated in their last three outings and face a Swindon team they haven't overcome since 2009, six meetings ago. The Robins completed a convincing double over Rovers last term - winning 5-0 at the County Ground and 3-1 at Prenton Park.

Walsall v Bradford City

Two of League 1's in-form teams come together as Walsall go head-to-head with Bradford City.

The Saddlers are unbeaten in four and became the first team to deny Leyton Orient all three points last weekend, while fifth-placed Bradford are unbeaten in six with four of those matches being victories.

Walsall have actually managed just one three-pointer on home soil so far and only one of Bradford's five triumphs have come on the road.
