Five facts

1. Crewe and Exeter meet for the first time since the 1990/1991 season. The last tie between the sides ended in a 1-1 draw.

2. The last goalless draw between Barnet and Mansfield came in 1999. Barnet haven’t defeated the Stags since a Sky Bet League Two game in 2006.

3. Carlisle put their unbeaten record on the line against Leyton Orient who have won their last two, including the win that dethroned Morecambe from the top of the pile last time out.

4. When Notts County and Accrington Stanley last met on this matchday weekend (9th September 2006), County won the fixture 3-2 at Meadow Lane.

5. Wycombe Wanderers have never defeated Portsmouth in an EFL match up. Their only win against Pompey came in the Trophy in 2012.
