Vital Preview - League One - 3rd February 2018

Vital Preview - League One - 3rd February 2018

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

Blackburn Rovers 3-1 Walsall 19:45
Rochdale P-P Wigan Athletic 19:45

Long-term League One leaders Wigan could lose this if they fail to beat Gillingham - themselves climbing up the table towards a potential play off place - and Blackburn return from midtable Plymouth with the points.

Shrewsbury are still very much in the automatic promotion bid and know a win at Bristol Rovers could move them back into the top two, potentially regaining the lead.

Rock bottom Bury are already at the point where anything less than a win over Blackpool and they're closer to a League Two return. Rochdale are in a similar position when facing relegation rivals Northampton, who go into the weekend just above the bottom four.

Oldham potentially face out of form Bradford at the right time to boost their survival hopes, whereas an MK Dons win at Walsall could lift them out of the drop zone.

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.


Bristol Rovers v Shrewsbury Town 15:00
Bury v Blackpool 15:00
Charlton Athletic v Oxford United 15:00
Fleetwood Town v Scunthorpe United 15:00
Northampton Town v Rochdale 15:00
Oldham Athletic v Bradford City 15:00
Peterborough United v Southend United 15:00
Plymouth Argyle v Blackburn Rovers 15:00
Portsmouth v Doncaster Rovers 15:00
Rotherham United v AFC Wimbledon 15:00
Walsall v Milton Keynes Dons 15:00
Wigan Athletic v Gillingham 15:00

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.
