Vital League One Preview - 12th-13th August 2017

The 2017-18 season continues with the latest round of games this weekend. This will see us among those involved with three points of course the aim.

Previous results

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.

Blackburn, the League One favourites, will look to get some first points on the board at Ewood Park against Doncaster, who marked their return from League Two with a draw last time round.

Fleetwood technically lead the way having won their opening game, the Cod Army will look to retain that position against Northampton.

Having won League Two last season, Portsmouth started with a win and travel to Oxford next whereas Plymouth, who finished behind Pompey in second, will look to recover from an opening day defeat as Charlton head to Devon.

Finishing rock bottom in the Championship last season, defeat in the opening game this term sees the Millers go into this weekend at the foot of League One, which they'll hope to change against Southend.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We'll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we're looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don't just look also have a say. We don't just want your vote, which you can do to the right; we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
