After their 779-mile round trip on Tuesday night – a journey that saw Carlisle United lose 4-1 to Plymouth Argyle – the Cumbrian side will be more relieved to have a home fixture this weekend than any other. They face AFC Wimbledon, who didn’t do too well last time out either losing 2-1 at home to Cambridge.

This season’s early League Two pace-setters are Leyton Orient – and they continued their fine start to the season on Tuesday night with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Teddy Sheringham’s winless Stevenage. This weekend they travel to another team yet to pick up three points – Newport, in what could be a really good opportunity to get some distance between themselves and the other two sides yet to drop points.

At the other end of the division, the rot has continued for Yeovil Town. Paul Sturrock’s side are yet to win in four matches this campaign, the most recent of which was a 1-0 defeat at York City. They are in real danger of continuing their terrible run of form, which stretches back a whole two seasons, unless they can pick up points at home to fellow strugglers Luton this time out – the Hatters’ only point this term came last weekend with their 2-2 draw with Oxford.

The Memorial Ground is the venue for the first battle of the newly-promoted sides this season – Bristol Rovers play host to Barnet after both sides have made decent starts to their respective campaigns. Rovers’ two victories have been by the solitary goal, the most recent of which was away to Luton on Tuesday, whereas Barnet’s 2-0 victory at the Hive in midweek over Northampton is their only win to date.

Dagenham & Redbridge will have a fight on their hands if they are to contain a Wycombe side who are yet to drop a point this season. The Daggers travel to Adams Park fresh off the back of a 2-1 defeat to Exeter, and they have let in six goals already this term – the total opposite to their hosts who are yet to concede this term.
