Five facts

1. Scunthorpe United’s Kevin Van Veen has scored four goals in his first three games of this season for the Iron.

2. Charlton Athletic and Shrewsbury Town go head-to-head on Tuesday for the first time since April 1986.

3. Tuesday hosts the 97th meeting between Gillingham and Swindon Town. The head-to-head record stands at 35-32 in favour of the Robins, but they haven’t got the better of the Gills since October 2011, seven meetings ago, and haven’t won away to them since December 1986.

4. Bury haven’t tasted success at Coventry sine October 1960. The Sky Blues beat the Shakers 6-1 at the Ricoh Arena last season.

5. MK Dons and Bradford have never shared the spoils, despite playing each other 12 times.
