What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment come the full time whistle.

Last time round Charlton's winning run was extended to three, taking the Addicks up to third; they could go top if - should other results go for them - all three points are secured at Valley Parade against Southend.

Second-bottom Oldham's bid for an elusive win takes them to Fleetwood on Saturday. Northampton, a place below the Latics, propping up the rest, also chase a first point when hosting Doncaster.

Gillingham have also failed to win a game collecting only two draws - they travel to Oxford.

Leaders Peterborough were held to a draw last time round and face the challenge from Bradford this time, which could seriously threaten the unbeaten Posh start.

Rochdale are one of those select few clubs who haven't won with the improving Blackburn - who have won their last two - next travelling to Spotland.

Meanwhile, unbeaten Scunthorpe, Shrewsbury and Wigan will look to keep these runs going - the Iron entertain Blackpool with the Shrew and Latics, in second and fifth, respectively, meeting at Greenhous Meadow.


Saturday 9th September
AFC Wimbledon v Portsmouth 15:00
Bristol Rovers v Walsall 15:00
Charlton Athletic v Southend United 15:00
Fleetwood Town v Oldham Athletic 15:00
Northampton Town v Doncaster Rovers 15:00
Oxford United v Gillingham 15:00
Peterborough United v Bradford City 15:00
Plymouth Argyle v Milton Keynes Dons 15:00
Rochdale v Blackburn Rovers 15:00
Rotherham United v Bury 15:00
Scunthorpe United v Blackpool 15:00
Shrewsbury Town v Wigan Athletic 15:00

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We'll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we're looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don't just look also have a say. We don't just want your vote, which you can do to the right; we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
