Five facts

1. Gabriel Zakuani, now a Northampton player, was sent off for Peterborough the last time they played the Cobblers, although Posh still managed a 1-0 win in 2009.

2. Walsall are still chasing their first away win of the season, and travel to Gillingham where they are unbeaten in four. The Saddlers won 2-1 at the Priestfield last season in the 110th meeting between the clubs.

3. Coventry and Oxford have met just seven times, the last of which came in 1988. The Sky Blues have won all four of the home meetings, although they came at their former ground, Highfield Road.

4. Rochdale have won six Sky Bet League One games in a row, but have only got the better of Swindon in one EFL game. That came at the County Ground, on a Tuesday night, in October, back in 2014.

 The Robins have 10 league victories against the Dale.

5. MK Dons are yet to take the lead in a home match this season. They’ve gone a goal to the good in seven of their eight previous meetings with Bristol Rovers, though, losing on the one occasion they didn’t.
