Vital Preview - League One - 21st November 2017

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

Previous results

Saturday 18th November
Bristol Rovers 1-3 AFC Wimbledon 15:00
Bury 0-3 Blackburn Rovers 15:00
Charlton Athletic 2-2 Milton Keynes Dons 15:00
Fleetwood Town 0-0 Doncaster Rovers 15:00
Northampton Town 0-3 Scunthorpe United 15:00
Oldham Athletic 3-1 Rochdale 15:00
Peterborough United 0-1 Blackpool 15:00
Plymouth Argyle 0-4 Oxford United 15:00
Portsmouth 1-0 Southend United 15:00
Rotherham United 1-2 Shrewsbury Town 15:00
Walsall 0-1 Gillingham 15:00
Wigan Athletic 1-2 Bradford City 15:00

It's a case of bottom verses top when struggling Bury play host to Shrewsbury. The Shakers have endured a miserable season so far but have already caused an upset against a side nearer the top; the Shrews will hope this doesn't happen at Gigg Lane as they look to maintain their four point cushion, at least.

Wigan, fresh from a defeat against Bradford - who play host to Scunthorpe looking to keep the pressure on - remain at the DW Stadium when hosting Doncaster, which will be another tough game for the Latics.

A big game at the bottom will see second bottom Plymouth play host to another side in the bottom four, Northampton - the points could be crucial in this as both clubs look to bounce back from heavy weekend defeats.

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.


Tuesday 21st November
Blackpool v Gillingham 19:45
Bradford City v Scunthorpe United 19:45
Bury v Shrewsbury Town 19:45
Charlton Athletic v Rochdale 19:45
Milton Keynes Dons v Southend United 19:45
Oldham Athletic v AFC Wimbledon 19:45
Oxford United v Blackburn Rovers 19:45
Peterborough United v Portsmouth 19:45
Plymouth Argyle v Northampton Town 19:45
Walsall v Fleetwood Town 19:45
Wigan Athletic v Doncaster Rovers 19:45

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.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
