League One: Week Five Preview

Milwall v Chesterfield
The Den hasn’t been a great place for Milwall this season and they haven’t won there this season in all competitions including a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Coventry, a dramatic loss against Barnsley, and a Capital One Cup defeat against Barnet. Chesterfield have scored five goals this campaign, and will be looking to add to this tally and take advantage of Milwall’s poor home record.

Bradford v Port Vale
Port Vale hold an unbeaten record so far this season, drawing three games and winning one, and they come up against a Bradford side who are yet to win a game yet this season, and sit dangerously inside the relegation spots. The home side have scored just three goals so far this campaign, and Port Vale have conceded only three. The hosts will find it hard to break down a tough Vale defence.

Bury v Oldham
Oldham also have an unbeaten record to hold onto, and like Port Vale, have also drawn three and won just the one. This is likely to be a high scoring contest, in Bury’s opening four games in League One this season, there have been nineteen goals, nine for Bury and ten for the opposition. Leon Clarke is one to watch out for, scoring four league goals so far.

Wigan v Crewe
Life in League One hasn’t served Gary Caldwell’s Wigan too well after four games with mixed results. The Latics are in mid-table with four points, and would have been hoping to make big progress since their 3-0 win over Scunthorpe, but a 2-0 loss to table-toppers Gillingham stopped them in their tracks. They come up against a Crewe side are without a win so far and sit just outside the relegation zone in 20th.

Colchester v Scunthorpe
Visitors Scunthorpe haven’t won in two matches, and will be keen to get back to winning ways when they pay a visit to Colchester. The home side haven’t won at all this campaign after just avoiding relegation last season, winning on the last day to maintain their League One status. They will be desperate to pick up their first three point of the season.

Coventry v Southend (Monday 19:45)
Former table-toppers Coventry face Southend in the last match of the fifth round of fixtures in League One against Southend. The home side had a 100% record after three games before they lost out to Walsall last weekend. Southend haven’t won since winning promotion to League One, and will be hoping to get their first win here, but it will be no easy task.
