    Blackpool - Rotherham

     

    Blackpool will host Rotherham in a match that will probably be decided in the last minutes.

    Rotherham are experiencing some decent problems in their defence, but considering their past matches against this rival, they remain with equal chances for the win, despite being away from home.

    • Blackpool haven't lost in 11 of their last 13 matches in all competitions.
    • In their last 9 games in League One, Blackpool have recorded a total of 5 draws.
    • In their last 31 away games in all competitions, Rotherham have a poor record of just 4 wins.
    • Blackpool haven't scored a single goal in 5 of their last 6 encounters with Rotherham in League One.
    • Prediction: Draw @ 3.54

    Oxford United - Doncaster Rovers

     

    A decent improvement in Oxford United's form, considering their problematic start of the new season, who are now unbeaten in their last 6 matches.

    They will face at home Doncaster Rovers - a team, who lost their most recent home encounter against Portsmouth.

    • In all of their 6 most recent matches of all competitions, there have been no losses for Oxford United.
    • Oxford United haven't lost in 22 of their last 26 home games in all competitions.

    • Prediction: Draw @ 3.76

    Rochdale - Accrington Stanley

     

    Two teams playing away of expectations will face each other on Saturday, when Rochdale host Accrington Stanley.

    Southend Utd - AFC Wimbledon

     

    Talking about teams playing below par, in another Saturday fixture Southend Utd will try to get a second win for the season, when they host AFC Wimbledon.

    The away side are just 2 points in front of Southend Utd in the relegation zone, so a win for the home side will see them definitely move one place closer to the safety.

    • Southend Utd have lost 9 of their last 11 games in their domestic league.
    • There have been over 2.5 goals in 9 of Southend Utd's last 12 all competitions games.
