2. Scunthorpe boss Graham Alexander returns to Fleetwood for the first time since his Highbury departure last September.

3. MK Dons are seeking what would be just their third home league win in 2016, but have lost both previous meetings with Millwall at Stadium MK.

4. This weekend, Charlton and Northampton lock horns in a league fixture for the first time since the 1966/67 season.

5. Oldham and Walsall will be playing for bragging rights with the head-to-head record tied after 54 meetings. It's 21 wins apiece, accompanied by 12 draws, since the first fixture in 1936.
