Sky Bet League One: Preview 01/09/16.

By the Flat Back Four Team.

Liam Richner, Macaulay Daley and Jack Prentice preview this weekend’s Sky Bet League One fixtures.

Peterborough United v Swindon Town

Peterborough are joint second in the goalscoring charts with 11 goals. Swindon in contrast have only found the net four times, and their last match at home to Bristol Rovers was abandoned due to heavy rain.

Predictions

Liam: 3-1

Jack: 3-1

Macaulay: 2-0

AFC Wimbledon v Chesterfield

After getting promoted to League One, Wimbledon are yet to win a game all season. Chesterfield’s Ched Evans has four goals in five since his return to the professional game.

Predictions

Liam: 1-1

Jack: 1-2

Macaulay: 0-1

Bolton Wanderers V Southend United

Phil Parkinson’s men are one of the two unbeaten sides left in the league. Bolton’s draw with Charlton last week meant that they were the last club in the EFL to lose their 100% start to the campaign. It is the Wanderers best unbeaten record since the back end of 2014. Phil Brown returns to the Macron, having previously played for the Lancashire side. Southend have conceded the same amount of goals as Bolton have scored this season.

Predictions

Liam: 2-0

Jack: 2-0

Macaulay: 2-1

Bury v Port Vale

Bury are winless in the league since the Opening day. Port Vale have the league’s meanest defence this season after conceding just 2 goals.

Predictions

Liam: 0-0

Jack: 0-1

Macaulay: 0-1

Fleetwood Town v Coventry City

Uwe Rosler’s Fleetwood have made a solid start, winning two and drawing tow of their opening 5 games. Coventry have not finished in the top seven in any league they have competed in since 1970, and that record looks to remain in tact with the Sky Blues failing to secure a victory this campaign, scoring just twice.

Predictions

Liam: 3-0

Jack: 2-0

Macaulay: 3-1

Millwall v Bradford City

Millwall’s matches this season average four goals a game, along with Scunthorpe. This is Stuart McCall third stint at Bradford, after playing 395 matches for the Bantams. He has kept the team tight at the back, with only Port Vale conceding less goals, and the team are currently unbeaten in the league.

Predictions:

Liam: 0-1

Jack: 2-1

Macaulay: 2-2

Oldham Athletic v Shrewsbury Town

Oldham are unbeaten in four, but have only found the net twice. Peter Clarke is the only player to have scored for the Latics, with the other being an own goal. Shrewsbury have found wins hard to come by, with just one all season.

Predictions:

Liam: 1-1

Jack: 1-0

Macaulay: 0-0

Oxford United v Rochdale

Oxford are averaging a goal a game and look to be missing Kemar Roofe who scored 18 goals in the league last season for the U’s. Rochdale are joint bottom, winless and have a goal difference of -3.

Predictions:

Liam: 2-0

Jack: 1-1

Macaulay: 3-1

Northampton Town v MK Dons

LOCAL DERBY. Northampton have drawn all five of their matches this season and are unbeaten in 2016. MK Dons currently sit in 12th following relegation from the Championship. Summer signing Kieran Agard scored a brace on his debut, and could be the difference here. MK Dons have only lost this fixture once.

Predictions:

Liam: 2-3

Jack: 1-1

Macaulay: 2-2

Gillingham v Sheffield United

Gillingham won this corresponding fixture  4-0 last season. The Gills have conceded the most goals in the league with 10, five of which came in their 5-0 defeat to Scunthorpe. Last weekend’s victory over Oxford was Chris Wilder’s first in charge of the Blades.

Predictions:

Liam: 1-1

Jack: 3-2

Macaulay: 3-1
