Bristol City v Oldham Athletic

After collecting their first win of the campaign last weekend, Bristol City host Oldham Athletic.

The Robins were 4-2 winners at Carlisle United last Saturday and that was their first victory since the beginning of March, 21 games ago, but they remain rock bottom.

Oldham have two defeats and two wins from their last four outings, with their most recent match, on Tuesday night, ending in defeat to Notts County, who leapfrogged Bristol City at the foot of the table with that victory.

Coventry City v Notts County

Following their midweek success against the Latics, Notts County now travel to Sixfields to play Coventry City.

The Magpies, who remain managerless following Chris Kiwomya's departure, ended a run of three successive defeats with that 3-2 win on Tuesday.

They will be up against it when they play Coventry as they possess League 1's worst away record, collecting a solitary point from seven games on the road. Not to mention the fact the Sky Blues have won five of their seven home games, netting 19 goals.

Crawley Town v Brentford

Crawley Town will be in search of a first ever victory against Brentford when the two sides clash in West Sussex on Saturday.

The Red Devils have come up against the Bees three times - all of which came last season - and they were defeated in each meeting. Brentford won the two league clashes 2-1 and triumphed 1-0 in a Johnstone's Paint Trophy encounter.

Uwe Rosler's fifth-placed side have won three on the bounce, while Crawley have lost their most recent two.

Crewe Alexandra v Bradford City

Bradford City have hit a sticky patch of form going into their meeting with Crewe Alexandra.

The Bantams only suffered one defeat in their first 10 matches of this term but have since lost three and drawn once. They remain in the Play-Offs by goal difference only.

At the other end of the spectrum, Crewe occupy a place in the division's bottom three. They've lost their last two games, to Sheffield United and Stevenage, but won the two games prior, against Preston North End and Bristol City.

Gillingham v Carlisle United

Carlisle United are on the road this weekend, to Gillingham.

The Cumbrians have lost two of their last three, with a victory against MK Dons being sandwiched by defeats to Oldham and Bristol City, but come up against a Gills side they have done well against in recent years.

United have won three of the five encounters with Gillingham since March 2007, drawing the other two, without conceding a single goal. The Gills are 19th in Sky Bet League 1 and have lost three of their last four.

Milton Keynes Dons v Walsall

Milton Keynes Dons have slumped to 11th after five defeats in seven and host Walsall.

Karl Robinson's men were sixth with 13 points from their opening seven games but they have since embarked on a run that has seen them take just six points from a possible 21.

Seventh-placed Walsall travel to Milton Keynes having lost just once on the road so far this term and they've won the last three meetings with the Dons, including the most recent encounter, 4-2, at stadiummk last December.

Peterborough United v Leyton Orient

The stand-out game in Sky Bet League 1 this Saturday sees table-toppers Leyton Orient travel to third-placed Peterborough United.

The O's succumbed to their first defeat last Tuesday when losing to Coventry City but recovered well to secure their 11th win of the season against Rotherham United on Saturday. Posh have 10 victories but have failed to notch a win from either of their last two outings, drawing with Sheffield United before losing at Colchester United.

Expect goals in this one; the only ever goalless draw between these two sides in 29 encounters came way back in 1994.

Preston North End v Tranmere Rovers

It's fourth from top against fourth from bottom at Deepdale, where Preston North End host Tranmere Rovers.

Preston are the side mixing it at the top of the division and trail a place in the top two by six points. They've lost just twice in the opening 14 matches and, since they suffered those defeats, have won twice and drawn once.

They may be in the relegation places but Tranmere are on a relatively good run - Ronnie Moore's Rovers come into the weekend's fixture after picking up seven points from their last four games.

Rotherham United v Colchester United

Rotherham United have experienced a recent blip in form and entertain Colchester United.

The Millers have chalked up just one win in their last seven and that poor run has seen them slip down the division, to 10th, ahead of their first meeting with Colchester since 2006.

The travelling U's were victorious against Peterborough last weekend but have won just once on the road this term, and that was on the opening day at Gillingham.

Shrewsbury Town v Sheffield United

Nigel Clough's rein as Sheffield United boss got off to a dream start last weekend and now he has his first away game with the Blades, against Shrewsbury Town.

Clough's men ran out comfortable 3-1 winners at home to Crewe in his opening match in charge and that result extended their unbeaten run to three, and moved them out of the bottom four. They are yet to win on the road.

Shrewsbury have only been defeated once on home soil but they come into the game with United having only managed one win in 11.

Swindon Town v Port Vale

Mark Cooper's Swindon Town entertain Port Vale.

The eighth-placed Robins have suffered successive defeats, to Walsall and Oldham, having previously won three games on the spin.

Vale are a place lower, in ninth, but are level on points. In contrast to Swindon, they've notched two wins on the bounce, against Crawley and Gillingham, after going without a win in the three matches prior to those two games.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Stevenage

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Stevenage will come together for the first time ever on Saturday.

The pair have experienced contrasting fortunes over recent years, with Wolves coming down from the lofty heights of the Premier League, while Stevenage rose up the divisions, and the pair are currently at opposite ends of the League 1 table.

Wolves sit second after five wins in six, along with a solitary draw, while Stevenage are 17th. Graham Westley's men are on form, though, having won three of their last four, including their most recent two.
