League One preview - Joint leaders hit the road

Gillingham travel to take on Peterborough United in League One on Saturday - and fellow leaders Walsall are also on the road against strugglers Blackpool.

Gillingham and Walsall share the lead on 10 points at the top of League One following unbeaten starts to the season. Both clubs have three wins and a draw from their opening four games in an impressive start to the campaign in August.

The Gills enjoyed a 2-0 win over promotion favourites Wigan Athletic last weekend. Highly-rated midfielder Bradley Dack bagged both goals - including one from the penalty spot. The relegated Latics have failed to win away in the league since March.

Gillingham travel to Peterborough, while Gary Caldwell's men will be looking to start a run of form against Crewe at the DW Stadium.

Walsall also join the Gills at the top following a fine win over Midlands rivals Coventry City and ended the Sky Blues' 100% record at the same time. Milan Lalkovic gave the Saddlers the lead and they made it 2-0 through in-form striker Tom Bradshaw before on-loan Norwich striker Jacob Murphy pulled a goal back for Coventry. Walsall will fancy their chances away to bottom side Blackpool.

Sheffield United made it three successive wins at home against the struggling Seasiders. Billy Sharp scored his first goal following his summer transfer back to Bramall Lane and that was quickly followed by a Mark McNulty strike. The Blades travel to Swindon and will want revenge having been knocked out of last season's play-offs by the same opponents.

Life in League One is looking good for newly-promoted Burton Albion. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's men made it three wins out of four so far this season against Peterborough at the Pirelli Stadium. However, the Brewers boss was not happy with the game overall.

Speaking to BBC Radio Derby, he said: "It was rubbish. The second half was even worse.

"We scored two good goals but I was not happy with how we played, was not happy with the performance, I was not happy with the dynamics of the team. We were sloppy. We became not Burton Albion."

Burton travel to Shrewsbury and Peterborough host Gillingham at London Road.

Swindon held on for a tough three points away to Southend last weekend to push themselves into the top six. Fabien Robert's third goal in as many games was enough to see off Phil Brown's side. Southend have only picked up two points from their matches this season and face a tough assignment at Coventry on Bank Holiday Monday.

Colchester have not enjoyed the best of starts in League One this season - and some observers have predicted that this will be the season to go back up following a narrow escape from relegation last time out. The U's have just two points so far and host Scunthorpe at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Bradford City have had a poor start to the season and occupy a place in the bottom four. Injuries have not helped Phil Parkinson's side and whilst he has added to the squad in the last two weeks, the manager will be looking for his side to gel quickly.

Just two points for the Bantams so far this season, they are back in front of their home fans when they play Port Vale at Valley Parade.
