Saturday’s action in Sky Bet League One kicks off with two fierce rivalries, the first at 12:00pm as AFC Wimbledon travel to MK Dons, with the former looking for revenge after their 4-2 penalty shootout defeat in the Carabao Cup back in August.

Paul Warne’s Rotherham United are also on the road at the weekend, they take the short trip to the Keepmoat Stadium and will face South Yorkshire rivals Doncaster Rovers at 12:30pm.

Darren Moore’s side are looking to remain unbeaten in their first five games in the EFL since the 1995/96 season.

Elsewhere, some of the early pace setters are set to take on each other, second-place Lincoln City head to Adams Park to see if they can navigate the threat of Wycombe Wanderers, and it is fourth v third as Coventry City host Blackpool at St Andrew’s.

Top spot in Sky Bet League Two is currently held by Exeter City, the Grecians have racked up four wins from six game at the start of the season and face Carlisle United at the weekend, looking to build on that impressive start.

Like League One, this Saturday will see an early promotion battle take pace, as two unlikely clubs in the form of Grimsby Town and Crewe Alexandra are set to lock horns and fight for the last promotion spot in the league standings.

The Railwaymen have gained nine points from losing positions in the league this season, more than any other League Two side, they will be hoping that they can get on the scoresheet early doors in this one.

Elsewhere, second-placed Newport County entertain Port Vale and Plymouth Argyle are aiming to win three consecutive league games against Oldham Athletic for the first time since November 1988.

Bottom of the EFL Scunthorpe United travel to Mansfield Town and 23rd-place Stevenage head to Cheltenham Town.
