10 October 2019

With the international break temporarily putting the Sky Bet Championship out of action, Sky Bet League One and Two take centre stage in the EFL this weekend.

Blackpool are one of two sides inside the top six to have a game this weekend, the Seasiders had to settle for a goalless draw against North West rivals Bolton Wanderers on Monday evening, and will be looking to get back on the winning trail with three points against Rotherham United. 

However, they are winless in their last eight encounters against the Millers, last tasting victory in March 1977.

Bristol Rovers have gone somewhat under the radar in recent weeks and currently find themselves in eighth position in the league standings, a win against MK Dons could take them as high as third depending on results elsewhere. 

The last time Peterborough United and Lincoln City met in the league came back in 2008, with the Posh walking away 4-0 winners on that occasion. Imps boss Michael Appleton will be looking to improve his sides away form which has seen them pick up just one point in their previous five games.

Towards the foot of the table, Rochdale entertain Accrington Stanley and AFC Wimbledon head to Roots Hall to take on Southend United.



League Two NEW.png

Arguably the biggest game of the weekend in Sky Bet League Two comes at St James Park, as second-place Exeter City welcome current league leaders Forest Green Rovers.

Forest Green were one of just eight sides to beat the Grecians at home in League Two last season, but Matt Taylor’s side have just lost one game in their last 15, however they are winless in their last three outings.

Crewe Alexandra manager David Artell has recently been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month, and it's no surprise with his side sitting just a spot outside of the automatic promotion places. The Railwaymen face a trip to Cumbria to take on Carlisle who are looking to kick-start their season after picking up 14 points from 12 games.

Bradford City have risen up the division in recent weeks and find themselves just inside the Play-Off places, the Bantams head to Morecambe on Saturday looking to make it six games unbeaten against the Shrimps in the league.

Stevenage currently occupy bottom spot in League Two after picking up just five points all season, they welcome Grimsby Town to the Lamex Stadium, a ground in which the Mariners have lost at on all three of their visits.
