There's no international break in League One, well, for most team anyway... this schedule will get underway with the early kick off at Valley Parade as Bradford - beaten only once at home in the past 15 months in the league - take on Bristol Rovers.

One of the few sides who are yet to taste defeat in League One are Scunthorpe, which will next be challenged at Bury. Leaders Peterborough are unbeaten too having won four out of four so far, they'll look to make it five at Doncaster.

It has been contrasting fortunes for Gillingham and Shrewsbury - the Gills haven't won a game yet whereas the Shrews have won all but one with that failure to secure victory coming in a draw last time round.

Second bottom Oldham have lost all their games so far but will hope to get off the mark in the visit of Charlton to Boundary Park. However, the Addicks are on good form having won three from four and would fancy their chances.

Yes, it is early days but Southend and Rochdale, especially Dale, haven't made the starts to the campaign they would have hope for - they would hope to get fully up and running at Roots Hall.

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.
