Peterborough United have started the season on fire but can they make it three League wins out of three? How many of the other five teams with a 100% record will win again this weekend?

There are eight teams who have yet to suffer a defeat after the opening two matches in League One; six of those teams have won both games.

Posh followed up their opening day victory over Plymouth Argyle with the demolition of Bristol Rovers but they face tough opposition this weekend when they host Rotherham United who struck five goal themselves last weekend.


Oxford United find themselves perched at the top of League One after hitting five unanswered goals in their opening matches. Can Scunthorpe United, who themselves are unbeaten after drawing both matches, breach the Yellows rear-guard?

There are two other sides who have yet to concede a League goal this season. Fleetwood Town, who have scored three goals so far, and Shrewsbury Town, with two goals to their name, are the two teams and they both have home games this weekend. The Cod Army face AFC Wimbledon while the Shrews host Rochdale.

Wigan Athletic and Bradford City are the other sides with a 100% winning record so far. Both sides face teams who have lost both their matches so far. The Latics travel to the other Latics, Oldham Athletic, while the Bantams have a home match against former Premier League winners Blackburn Rovers.

The only other unbeaten side is Doncaster Rovers, who have picked up four out of six points, host Blackpool who have won one and lost one match so far.

Down at the bottom, five sides have yet to pick up a point. We`ve already mentioned the Latics and Rovers but at rock bottom is Bristol Rovers who face a trip to Bury. The other two teams bring us delight as they are Northampton Town and MK Dons! The Cobblers are on the road at Charlton Athletic while the Dons host Gillingham.
