Sky Bet League One: Matchday 7 preview

9 September 2016

It's all happening at 3pm on Saturday in Sky Bet League One as 24 sides take to the field to do battle.

Current leaders Bolton Wanderers welcome Milton Keynes Dons to the Macron Stadium, knowing a win could move them five points clear at the summit.

Oxford and Swindon fans have waited four years to taste a local derby in a league game, and this weekend the two sides lock horns at the Kassam Stadium.

Five Facts:

1. Charlton and Fleetwood will be meeting for the first time in history.

2. The derby game between Oxford United and Swindon Town hasn’t produced a draw since 1995. Oxford have won the previous five encounters.

3. Northampton and Walsall sit at 30 league wins a piece against each other. Walsall won the last two matches between the teams, in the 2008/2009 season.

4. Rochdale and Coventry City are side-by-side at the foot of League One, with both still in search of their first wins of the season. The last time Rochdale started a season this badly, it took them until their eighth game to get their first victory.

5. Southend have not defeated Scunthorpe at Glanford Park since 1977.
