Five facts

1. Cambridge have won just one of their 16 meetings with Portsmouth, and that came in March 1978. The U's have failed to take maximum points in any of the 14 clashes since.

2. Cheltenham and Blackpool meet in the EFL for the first time since 2006/07, when the Seasiders won both games 2-1. That was also the scoreline in August, when Gary Bowyer led his team to a Checkatrade Trophy win over the Robins.

3. Doncaster and Wycombe have met just three times in their history. The Chairboys did the double in 1993/94 on their way to promotion, before edging past Rovers on penalties in their only other encounter, a 2006 EFL Cup tie.

4. Colchester, winless in seven, face Plymouth, unbeaten in 12, and are on a barren run against the Pilgrims. Their last win came in the 1995/96 season, but Plymouth had the final say by defeating them over two Play-Off legs. The U's haven't won in the 10 EFL meetings since.

5. Yeovil and Grimsby have only shared one season in the EFL, the 2004/05 campaign. Both games finished 2-1 to the home team, and current Glovers boss Darren Way played in both.
