Preview: Sky Bet League One and League Two weekend action

2 September 2021

With the Sky Bet Championship breaking for the internationals, League’s One and Two firmly take centre stage this weekend.


With Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday’s games called off, there is a big opportunity for Oxford United and Burton Albion to make headway and break into the automatic promotion spots.

After Morecambe thwarted Wednesday’s unbeaten start to the season, the Yellows could reach the summit with a result against a Wimbledon side without a win in four.

The Brewers move in to the top two as they take on Bolton Wanderers in front of the television cameras on Monday night.

Trailing Oxford and Burton by just a point in ninth place, Accrington Stanley will pit their wits against Shrewsbury Town. The Shrews kickstarted their campaign last weekend, recording a first League victory in a hard-fought contest against Gillingham last time out.

Meanwhile, two teams attempting to steady the ship after a mixed start to the season sees Cheltenham Town and Milton Keynes Dons complete the weekend’s League One line-up.


Elsewhere, there’s plenty of League Two action to look ahead to, as Forest Green Rovers look to make amends against Exeter City, after defeat to Port Vale last weekend shattered the Gloucestershire Club’s 100% record.

In addition, Mansfield Town will be out for vengeance against Harrogate Town, following the Stags’ 3-1 defeat to the West Yorkshire team in the Group Stage of the Papa John’s Trophy.

Meanwhile, in-form Swindon Town could take advantage of Stevenage’s faltering form this weekend. The Robins go into the game buoyed by back-to-back triumphs over Mansfield and Salford City.

And Gary Bowyer’s men, who despatched Newport County 3-0 last weekend to gain their first three points of the season, face a Carlisle United side searching for that elusive home League win to kickstart their campaign.
