Sky Bet League 1 midweek preview

17 September 2013

Bristol City v Shrewsbury Town

Bristol City will be searching for their first league win of the campaign when they welcome Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday evening.

The Robins have registered three points from their six outings this term with draws against Bradford City, Milton Keynes Dons and Gillingham, and Sean O'Driscoll's side come into the fixture after falling 3-0 to Peterborough United last Saturday.

Graham Turner's men are undefeated in their last four matches. The Shrews overcame Swindon Town 2-0 before sharing points with Rotherham United, Coventry City and Crawley Town.

Leyton Orient v Notts County

Leyton Orient are the only Football League club still holding a 100 per cent winning record and they host bottom of the table Notts County.

The O's have flown out of the blocks this term with six wins from six games, scoring 16 goals and conceding four. In their most recent match, Russell Slade's men ran out 3-2 victors against Port Vale with the evergreen Kevin Lisbie scoring an 88th-minute winner.

The Magpies have just one point to their name so far this season and have lost to Stevenage, Rotherham United and Milton Keynes Dons in their last three outings.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Walsall

Wolverhampton Wanderers have won their last five league matches and entertain Walsall.

Kenny Jackett's side are one of only five undefeated teams in Sky Bet League 1 and they narrowly overcame Swindon Town 3-2 last time out, while the Saddlers also won on Saturday, beating Crewe Alexandra 3-0, to take their tally to 10 points from six matches.

It will be the second meeting between the clubs this month after Wolves knocked Walsall out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy two weeks ago, winning 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out following a 2-2 draw.
