Sky Bet League One: Matchday 32 preview

14 February 2017

There will be no love lost on a full midweek schedule as the battle for the Sky Bet League One Play-Off positions intensifies.

In the night's 8pm kick-off, third-placed Bolton Wanderers host Rochdale, who sit outside the top six on goals scored, while it's fourth versus fifth when Fleetwood Town host Bradford City in another tantalising Tuesday clash.

At the opposite end of the table, the division's bottom three are all away from home, and the other team in the relegation zone – Bury – host Milton Keynes Dons.

Leaders Sheffield United visit Bristol Rovers, and title rivals Scunthorpe United welcome Walsall to Glanford Park.

Five facts

1. Rochdale are yet to beat Bolton on their own patch, losing five and drawing one of their six visits. However, their last visit was in 1992, so this will be Dale's maiden trip to the Macron Stadium.

2. Bury are still looking for a home triumph over MK Dons, losing three of the four encounters with an aggregate scoreline of 2-11. They did overcome the Dons at stadiummk in September's reverse fixture, however.

3. Millwall and Port Vale meet for the 50th time in all competitions, and it's the Valiants who lead the head-to-head record, with 22 wins to the Lions' 17. The spoils have been shared on 10 occasions.

4. Oldham haven't defeated Charlton since 1994, with the Addicks unbeaten in the 12 games since. However, the most common result between the two has been a draw, with 20 of the 47 meetings finishing level – Charlton have won 19 and Oldham eight.

5. Scunthorpe's 2014 Glanford Park success against Walsall is the only time the home team has emerged victorious in this fixture since November 2008, with 11 games taking place in that period.
