Milton Keynes Dons, Charlton Athletic and Sheffield United all share the pole position in League One at the moment but things could change at the end of the fifth round of matches in the division on Saturday.

All three teams have ten points each from four games, with MK Dons ahead of Charlton and United because of superior goal difference.

Karl Robinson's side welcome Stevenage and should be aware that this is a potential banana skin. Graham Westley's team have yet to lose in their two away games in League One and are themselves looking to climb up the table.

Charlton too face a tough fixture on Saturday as they are away at Bury, who have picked up seven points so far and will hope to close the gap on the leaders with a win.

Sheffield United, who lost 3-1 to Everton in the Carling Cup in midweek, have the easiest game among the top three. Danny Wilson takes his players to Huish Park to take on a Yeovil Town team that are just two points above the relegation zone.

Brentford, who are fourth in the league standings with nine points, will aspire to garner a win from their encounter with Tranmere Rovers. However, it does not promise to be easy as the visitors are just two points behind them.

Preston North End and Carlisle United are two of the other sides on seven points. The former host Notts County on six points, while the latter should pick up an easy victory against bottom side Leyton Orient, who have yet to get off the mark.

Huddersfield Town, Sheffield Wednesday and Oldham Athletic all have collected six points so far this season and will be hoping to add to their tally.

Lee Clark's side entertain Wycombe Wanderers at the Galpharm Stadium, Wednesday face struggling Scunthorpe United, while Oldham are at Colchester United.

There are two clashes between struggling sides in League One this Saturday. Exeter City, who have collected just one point from their opening four games, host Chesterfield, who have also picked up a solitary point and have conceded seven goals in two away matches.

Rochdale are fourth from bottom and having picked up only two points so far, will aspire for an encouraging performance and a positive result against Hartlepool United, who are 16th.

Bournemouth against Walsall at the Seward Stadium completes the full round of fixtures in England's third tier this Saturday.
