Sky Bet EFL League One Build-Up (12/08/2017)

<div style='background-color: #005abb;'><a href='' title='news'>headlines</a></div>

Peterborough United started the season with a win but can they make it two League wins on the bounce? How many of the other nine teams that won last weekend will win again this weekend?

After the opening weekend of the season, 10 teams in League One were celebrating victories but how many of them will be celebrating again come 5pm on Saturday?

Posh hit the ground running although Plymouth Argyle were unfortunate to leave the ABAX Stadium with no points. Posh travel to Bristol Rovers on match day two while Argyle face a Charlton Athletic side who beat Rovers despite being down to 10-men after only 6 minutes!


Just one of the relegated sides won last weekend but Wigan Athletic will have to wait until Sunday to see if they can make it two wins out of two when they face a Bury side who also won on the opening day.

Blackburn Rovers and Rotherham United both suffered disappointing defeats last weekend and they will be desperate to get some points on the board when they face Doncaster Rovers and Southend United respectively. It was Southend that inflicted in the opening day defeat on Blackburn so it won`t be an easy task for the Millers.

Fleetwood Town, Oxford United and Portsmouth currently sit in the top three with a goal difference of +2 and while the Cod Army travel to Northampton Town, Pompey will be visiting Oxford!!

The next round of League One fixtures are:

Saturday, 12th August, 2017
15:00 AFC Wimbledon v Shrewsbury Town
15:00 Blackburn Rovers v Doncaster Rovers
15:00 Blackpool v MK Dons
15:00 Bristol Rovers v Peterborough United

15:00 Northampton Town v Fleetwood Town
15:00 Oxford United v Portsmouth
