Scunthorpe United 0-0 Blackpool 15:00
Shrewsbury Town 1-0 Wigan Athletic 15:00

League One strugglers Gillingham, second bottom, and Oldham, who prop up the rest, each face trips - the Gills to Wimbledon and the Latics Bristol Rovers, seeking that elusive first win.

If Charlton win at fellow highflyers Wigan - who did suffer a first defeat at the weekend - and results go for the Addicks they could end the evening top.

Fleetwood would be expected to be there or thereabouts this season and they seek a first win in three against a visiting Bury side that have collected just one point since an opening day victory.

Both Oxford and Bradford are going along nicely with the visiting Bantams bidding to follow up a win at Peterborough - inflicting the then leaders' first defeat of the season - at the Kassam Stadium. Meanwhile, Posh will hope for a reaction against MK Dons.

An unbeaten start to Scunthorpe's season will next be tested in the visit of Blackburn - Tony Mowbray's Rovers side will head to Glanford Park having won their previous three in League One.

Meanwhile, Shrewsbury, who took over at the top at the weekend, will look to keep this position when facing Southend at Greenhous Meadow.

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.
