Gillingham v Port Vale
Millwall v Southend United
Northampton Town v Chesterfield

Five facts

1. This weekend sees Walsall visit Bolton in a league fixture for the first time since 2000. They lost 4-3 that day, and have lost two EFL Cup ties at the Macron Stadium since.

2. Bristol Rovers hold a dominant head-to-head record over Bradford City, with the Bantams only ever picking up four wins in 23 previous meetings. The spoils were shared when the pair met in September.

3. Fixtures between Bury and Swindon have favoured the visiting side in recent years, with no home team winning any of the last six. The Shakers had lost three in a row at home to the Robins prior to last term's 2-2 draw.

4. Northampton's last victory over Chesterfield came in April 2007, when Simon Cox scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory. Since then, they have drawn three and lost six of their encounters with the Spireites.

5. Scunthorpe have gone 17 games against Shrewsbury without loss, with the Shrews' last win being a 2-1 success in 1998. The Iron have won 12 and drawn five of those meetings.
