Sky Bet League One: Matchday 9 preview

23 September 2016

Matchday 9's Sky Bet League One fixtures all get under way at 3pm on Saturday afternoon, with all 24 teams taking to the field.

At the top, new leaders Scunthorpe host the league's form side, Sheffield United. The Blades have picked up maximum points from their last four outings, and are seeking a fifth win on the bounce for the first time since 2013/2014.

Bolton Wanderers have began to stutter since their promising start to the season - they're without a win in four - and face Sky Bet League One's only remaining unbeaten side, Bradford City, although the Bantams have drawn their previous four.

Five Facts

1. Bolton Wanderers and Bradford City have not met since Boxing Day of 1998, the fixture ending in a goalless draw that day. The Bantams are without a victory over the Trotters since 1993.

2. Port Vale's Alex Jones and AFC Wimbledon's Dominic Poleon are the most lethal strikers in Sky Bet League One. While they may not be the leading scorers, Jones with five goals and Poleon with three boast a 100% conversion rate when their attempts are on target.

3. Oxford United have not tasted victory against Charlton since 1996, a run of 17 winless games against the Addicks.

4. Fleetwood and MK Dons have only met twice before, the Dons winning both encounters in the 2014/15 Sky Bet League One season.
5. Coventry City are now the only winless club in Sky Bet League One, but they face Gillingham this weekend - a side without victory in their last three EFL games, and who also possess the leakiest defence in the division.
