Accrington Stanley v Portsmouth

Two teams who were soundly dispatched in their respective opening day fixtures meet in Lancashire on Saturday with Accrington Stanley hosting Portsmouth in front of the Sky Sports cameras at 12.15pm.

Both sides went down 4-1 on the first day of the Sky Bet League 2 season - Stanley losing to Newport County and Pompey going down at home to Oxford United in front of 18,181 - and they will be eager to make amends.

James Beattie's men pulled off a shock 2-1 win against Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night so will have a degree of confidence, and the pressure will be on Portsmouth to record their first win and get what is tipped to be a promotion season on track.

AFC Wimbledon v Wycombe Wanderers

AFC Wimbledon registered just six victories at home last season but will want to start well in front of their own crowd this time around - they entertain Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

The Dons finished 20th last term and will be aiming to significantly improve on that, and will need to improve at home if they are to do so.  They recorded a point against Torquay United on the first day, and will now be in search of three against the Chairboys, who beat Morecambe 1-0 last Saturday.

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley has urged his side to believe in themselves, and he could hand a debut to defender Rhys Weston, who has signed for the club after being given international clearance.

Bristol Rovers v Scunthorpe United

Bristol Rovers' injury problems have continued this week and manager John Ward is still without nine of his first-team players for the visit of Scunthorpe United.

Ward's men are searching for their first win of the season following a 2-1 reverse against Exeter City last Saturday and a midweek 3-1 loss to Watford in the Capital One Cup, but will be up against it when they take on Scunthorpe, who were comfortable 2-0 winners against Mansfield Town last weekend.

Iron manager Brian Laws, who says his side have a tough test on their hands, will be without experienced defender Andy Dawson, who is playing in his testimonial match for Hull City, and winger Etienne Esajas, who remains injured.

Burton Albion v Rochdale

Burton Albion fought back from two goals down to gain a respectable point away to Cheltenham Town last Saturday and they host Rochdale this time around.

Gary Rowett's Brewers will be satisfied with the point they gained against the Robins, particularly after being two goals behind after half an hour, but will now be focussed on building on that and starting well at the Pirelli Stadium, where enjoyed 17 wins last term. They also have the momentum of an away victory at Sheffield United in the Capital One Cup behind them.

Rochdale were 3-0 victors on the first day and will be eager to back that up and start well on the road. One of the Dale's main downfalls last term was their away defensive record - they conceded 43 goals on the road, the worst in the division - and will need to address that this term.

Chesterfield v Cheltenham Town

Chesterfield have their first home match of the season this Saturday against Cheltenham Town and will be confident of making it two wins from two in Sky Bet League 2.

The Spireites were comfortable 2-0 winners at Bury on the opening day and that has set them up well for a first game in front of a home crowd, against a side who they will see as promotion rivals.

Cheltenham were held to a 2-2 draw by Burton Albion on the first day after going two goals in front and Mark Yates will want his team to respond well. The Robins will be without experienced striker Jamie Cureton who dislocated his shoulder as he scored the opener against the Brewers.

Dagenham and Redbridge v York City

Dagenham and Redbridge will want to put their two defeats of the past week behind them on Saturday when they entertain York City.

The Daggers lost 3-1 to Fleetwood Town on the first day before narrowly losing 3-2 to Brentford in the Capital One Cup, and manager Wayne Burnett will be eager for his side to start well on home soil.

York, on the other hand, won late on against Northampton Town last Saturday but were hammered 4-0 in the cup by Burnley, and boss Nigel Worthington hinted at making some changes for the Daggers clash during his pre-match press conference.

Hartlepool United v Southend United

Pools sit rock bottom of the table following an opening day 3-0 defeat to Rochdale and they will be hungry to respond when they host Phil Brown's Southend United on Saturday.

Hartlepool United's week went from bad to worse when they conceded three more in a Capital One Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest and then lost key defender Peter Hartley, who moved to Stevenage. Manager Colin Cooper may also be without goalkeeper Scott Flinders who sat out of the second half against Forest.

Southend will fancy their chances against a team that manager Phil Brown knows well, having made over 200 appearances for Pools as a player in the early 80s. The Shrimpers were 1-0 winners against Plymouth Argyle last Saturday and were good travellers last term - winning 10 games on the road - so will want to continue that.

Expect goals in this one; the last 10 meetings between these two teams has produced three or more goals, including 16 over the last four.

Mansfield Town v Exeter City

Football League action returns to Mansfield Town's Field Mill on Saturday with the Stags hosting Exeter City in their first home match of the season.

After a five-year League exile, the Nottinghamshire outfit were promoted as Conference champions last season but begun with a 2-0 loss to Scunthorpe on the opening day and then lost in the Capital One Cup to Tranmere Rovers by the same scoreline. In his pre-match press conference, manager Paul Cox admitted things haven't quite gone his team's way but has called on his players to respond positively.

Exeter, meanwhile, were 2-1 winners against Bristol Rovers on the opening and they will be hoping for a repeat of the last time they clashed with the Stags at Field Mill, way back in December 2001, when they triumphed 1-0 in a Division Three fixture.

Morecambe v Torquay United

Morecambe host Torquay Untied this weekend fresh off the back of a Capital One Cup victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Shrimps lost 1-0 to Wycombe Wanderers last Saturday but will have the wind in their sails after Ryan Williams' late free-kick gave them their morale-boosting cup win against the League 1 Wolves.

Torquay drew 1-1 with AFC Wimbledon last Saturday and will want to start well away from home, getting themselves on their way to improving last season's tally of just four away wins.

Northampton Town v Newport County

Aidy Boothroyd's Northampton Town will aim to re-discover the home form from last term that propelled them to the League 2 Play-Off Final when they host Newport County on Saturday afternoon.

The Cobblers lost convincingly on their big day out at Wembley against Bradford City but it was their form at Sixfields - 17 wins from 23 matches - that ultimately got them there, and they will want to get off on the right note in front of their home fans, particularly after losing 1-0 at York City last weekend. Since that defeat to the Minstermen, Boothroyd has added striker Jacob Blyth from Leicester City to his team and he may make his debut.

Newport will provide a stern test for the Cobblers with the Exiles having a dream start to life back in The Football League. Justin Edinburgh's men hammered Accrington Stanley 4-1 last Saturday, to sit top of the division, and then pulled off arguably the shock of the Capital One Cup First Round by beating Brighton and Hove Albion 3-1 after extra-time at the Amex Stadium. The Welsh outfit's spirits will be high, to say the least.

Oxford United v Bury

After seeing off Portsmouth 4-1 at Fratton Park last Saturday, Chris Wilder's men have another match against a League 2 new boy this weekend, with the U's hosting Bury.

Alfie Potter and Deane Smalley scored two apiece on the South Coast to give Oxford three points, while the Shakers lost 2-0 at home to Chesterfield on the opening day, which prompted manager Kevin Blackwell to make his 17th new addition of the summer by signing Huddersfield Town's Jordan Sinnott on a six-month loan.

Sinnott could make his debut at the Kassam Stadium and Blackwell's Bury will hope to pick up where they left off on Tuesday night in the Capital One Cup, when they overcame Crewe Alexandra 3-2.

Plymouth Argyle v Fleetwood Town

Fleetwood Town were convincing 3-1 winners against Dagenham and Redbridge on the opening day and they now face a trip to Devon to take on Plymouth Argyle, who lost at Southend United.

It was a trio of summer additions - Mark Roberts, Jeff Hughes and Ryan Cresswell - who bagged the goals for the Cod Army against the Daggers and they will be eager to carry that on, wiping away any memory of their midweek 3-2 Capital One Cup defeat at League 1 Notts County.

Plymouth also lost 3-2 in the Cup, against Birmingham City, but gave the Blues a scare by taking the tie into extra-time. The Pilgrims will want to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat in Essex last Saturday, and will be hopeful of replicating the result they achieved against Fleetwood in March, when they won 2-1 at Home Park.
