Five facts

1. Swindon and Bolton meet for the first time since October 1999, the Trotters overcoming their opponents 4-0 and 2-0 in league meetings that month.

2. It's fair to say that Scunthorpe have had Northampton's number at Glanford Park over the years. The Cobblers haven't won there in 17 matches, since a 2-0 victory in 1980 – but the pair have drawn the last four meetings.

3. Southend have scored four goals away from home this season, and they've all arrived within 15 minutes of kick-off. They've failed to take advantage, picking up just four points from five matches on the road.

4. Oxford and AFC Wimbledon have met 12 times prior to Sunday's Sky Sports match-up. The U's are yet to taste defeat, winning 10 of those.

5. Bradford and Shrewsbury have faced off 50 times, dating back to 1951, but only two of those encounters have taken place in October. The Shrews won both, in 1969 and 1974.
