League 1 Preview

League 1 Preview

League leaders Tranmere welcome relegation placed Bury at Prenton Park. Tranmere are unbeaten, have a 100% home record, only failed to score in 1 game and have a +11 GD. Bury have not won all season, have not kept a clean sheet since the opening game of the season but out of the 5 goals they have scored this season 4 (80%)  have been away from home. 2nd place Notts County travel to MK Dons. County will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing draw at Oldham at the weekend. They are unbeaten away from home but the MK Dons have a 100% record at home. County have failed to concede in the first half of a game where as the Dons have not let one in, in the second. Two play-off team meet at Broadhall Way as Stevenage host Walsall. Stevenage are unbeaten this season but have drawn all their home games, they have scored in every game this season. Walsall are unbeaten in 5 and are yet to lose on the road this season. Bottom club Colchester take on play off pushing Crawley. Colchester have not won this season so far and are on a 3 game losing streak. Crawley have won 4 of their 6 games this season and will be confident of another. The last team in the play-offs, Yeovil, travel to Leyton Orient. Orient have won their last 2 games, and the last 4 games have ended 1-0, a scoreline that Yeovil have lost to in their last 2 games.

Unbeaten Sheff Utd take on Doncaster at Home. Sheff Utd may be unbeaten but they have drawn 4 out of 6 games this season but scored in all 6. Doncaster are playing their 3rd away game on the trot (1 win, 1 defeat). Brentford, who are without an away win, travel to a Bournemouth team who have drawn all 3 games out home this season. Brentford have failed to score in 2/3 of their away games and Bournemouth have drawn 1-1 4 times this season. Preston host Hartlepool in a mid-table battle. The Lillywhites will be hoping to bounce back after a home defeat against Crawley against a Hartlepool team who have yet to win away from home. In another mid-table clash, Paolo Di Canio takes his Swindon team to crisis club Portsmouth. Swindon have no win in 3 and Portsmouth have not won at home yet. Carlisle and Crewe are locked together in the table and meet at Brunton Park. Both teams come off the back of 2-2 draws at the weekend. Both teams have been amongst the goals with matches averaging around 3 goals a game. The last 2 games both involve teams around the bottom. Shrewsbury host second bottom Coventry. Shrewsbury have no win in 4 and have lost their last 2, whilst Coventry have no win this season and have lost their last 3. Both teams average less than a goal a game. In the last game Oldham host Scunthorpe. Both teams are struggling but are unbeaten in the last 2 games. Don't expect goals in this games. Oldham average 0.8 a game whilst Scunthorpe average 0.5.
