League One Preview: Week Three (Midweek)

Blackpool v Burton
The Seasiders played well on Saturday, and forced a few very good saves from the Rochdale keeper, and you could say they were unlucky to lose 2-0, but if they play the same on Tuesday night against Jimmy Floyd Hasslebaink’s Burton. Their opening day win over Scunthorpe has been followed up by a disappointing defeat against Barnsley, and they will be keen to get back to winning ways here.

Peterborough v Sheffield United (Tuesday 19:30)
Sheffield United are one of the favourites to up at the end of this season, and that 4-0 towelling that they took in the first game of the season at Gillingham, and their 2-0 win against Chesterfield will give them confidence ahead of the trip to Peterborough, who won against Colchester on Saturday after losing against Rochdale in their first game. Both are on three points going into this one and both will be keen to move onto six by the end of the game.

Millwall v Barnsley
Barnsley won against Burton on Saturday courtesy of a second half penalty, and The Tykes will be confident ahead of their visit to The Den. The Lions haven’t won there this season following their extra-time loss to Barnet in the Capital One Cup and the thrashing that they took on Saturday against Coventry. In both games they missed a penalty, will they do the same here?

Bury v Fleetwood
Fleetwood should have walked away with more than they did against Rochdale on Saturday after losing 2-0, leaving them winless so far this season, and you can say the same about newly-promoted Bury, who have drawn their two games so far, against Swindon and Doncaster. Who will get their first win of the season, or will it be another draw for Bury?

Doncaster v Southend (Wednesday 19:45)
A 1-1 draw with Fleetwood was Southend’s welcome to League One on the opening day, but they suffered defeat on Saturday when Walsall paid a visit to the seaside. Doncaster have drawn both of their matches so far this season, and will be aiming to get their first win of the campaign here against new-boys Southend, who are also winless this season.

Wigan v Scunthorpe (Wednesday 19:45)
Wigan haven’t won yet this season, and the campaign has panned out different to how the club and fans had been hoping for under the management of Gary Caldwell. A drab 0-0 draw with Doncaster on Sunday gave Wigan their first point of the season, and they will want to build on this going into the game against Scunthorpe, who won against Crewe on Saturday.
