Rotherham United will be looking to maintain their League Two lead over Morecambe this international weekend.

The Millers have made a blistering start to the new campaign, although they will now be without free-scoring Adam Le Fondre for their trip to Swindon Town on Saturday.

Morecambe are tucked in nicely behind the league leaders having won four on the bounce after their opening-day defeat and Jim Bentley's side will be confident of getting the better of Bradford on home soil.

Newly-promoted Crawley Town are in the third and final automatic promotion spot five games into the new season and they host a Bristol Rovers side on Saturday who start the day just a point outside the play-off positions.

Gillingham will be looking to return to winning ways at home to Shrewsbury after suffering their first league defeat last time out at high-flying Rotherham.

Fifth-placed Dagenham & Redbridge will be quietly confident of maintaining their fine start to the campaign against a Hereford side at Edgar Street still searching for their first three-point haul.

Back-to-back wins has lifted Cheltenham into sixth spot and The Robins travel to Aldershot to face a team who are winless in four league outings after kicking off the season with a victory.

Southend occupy League Two's final play-off place and they host a Northampton team at Roots Hall who have lost three consecutive league outings.

Plymouth's game at Burton Albion looks certain to go ahead, although it remains to be seen what line-up the visitors start with. Their first-teamers have travelled, but could pull out if they are not paid the 40 per cent of their wages the club's administrators have promised.

Crewe got their season up and running against fellow strugglers Plymouth last time out and they could move further away from the bottom two at home to Oxford United on Saturday.

Four games without a win has seen Barnet slide down the table and they welcome an inconsistent Accrington Stanley team to Underhill this weekend.

AFC Wimbledon are just a point behind Port Vale in the table so it should be a keenly-contest game as the newly-promoted side tackle The Valiants at Kingsmeadow.

Torquay's home clash with Macclesfield concludes the weekend's League Two programme.
