A look ahead to the weekend action!

3 October 2019

Another weekend of EFL action is just around the corner! Here's what's coming up across the three divisions...

The games begin on Friday evening at St. Andrew's, where Birmingham City take on Middlesbrough, with both sides without a win in three league games. Fulham and Charlton Athletic, meanwhile, have made strong starts to the campaign, and meet in Saturday's early kick-off.

Elsewhere, it's top v bottom, as Swansea City take on winless Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium. There's also a battle between two promotion hopefuls in West Bromwich Albion and Cardiff City, as well as Leeds United's trip to Millwall, a fixture which always promises to be one to watch.

With 10 games played, just three points separate the top six sides, while gaps are beginning to open up at the bottom, making this an important matchday at both ends of the table.



League One NEW.png

All bar one of this weekend's Sky Bet League One fixtures are set to take place on Saturday at 3pm, with Bolton Wanderers' North West derby against Blackpool set for Monday evening. 

It's Ipswich Town who lead the way going into the latest round of fixtures, and Paul Lambert's side face a tricky trip to third-placed Fleetwood Town. Not far behind them are both Wycombe Wanderers and Peterborough United respectively, who go head-to-head at Adams Park.

Elsewhere, Lincoln City will be looking for their first win under Michael Appleton but will have to overcome promotion-chasing Sunderland AFC to do so. Both AFC Wimbledon and Rochdale - who sit 18th and 22nd respectively - could also use a league win, and meet on Saturday afternoon.



League Two NEW.png

Things are tight at the top of Sky Bet League Two, and the two sides level on points at the summit will face off this weekend. Second-placed Crewe Alexandra take on top-of-the-table Exeter City, in what is arguably the pick of the fixtures.

Forest Green Rovers have conceded just five goals all season and scored four on their last outing; they'll be looking to pick up where they left off when they host Crawley Town. Meanwhile, Cheltenham Town continue to go under the radar and travel to Oldham Athletic looking for a seventh victory of the campaign.

Contrastingly, bottom-of-the-table Stevenage will be looking for their first win of 2019/20 when they travel to Colchester United.
