  • Gillingham v Fleetwood Town (13.00)
  • Accrington Stanley v Bristol Rovers postponed due to Covid at Accy
  • Blackpool v Milton Keynes Dons
  • Burton Albion v AFC Wimbledon
  • Doncaster Rovers v Crewe Alexandra
  • Hull City v Peterborough United
  • Lincoln City v Ipswich Town
  • Northampton Town v Charlton Athletic
  • Oxford United v Swindon Town
  • Shrewsbury Town v Rochdale
  • Sunderland v Portsmouth
  • Wigan Athletic v Plymouth Argyle

Firstly, best wishes to everyone at Accy. Hope its just a precaution and no-one is seriously ill.

Dale away at Shrewsbury, a competent, decent and pretty well run club who I quite like. We've had some good wins there before, hope for another if we play properly (like against Fleetwood or Burton) rather than muck about too much in defence (Swindon or Hull). No injury update yet from the club, but I suspect Humphrys and Baah still not ready, while McShane and O'Connell missed the win at Burton. The two young lads from Arsenal and Brighton did pretty well in midweek.

In the other games, I don't have any good reason why, but I think Pompey might beat Sunderland. Not backing it, though - no money to waste and haven't won a football bet since the group I used to go to away matches with drew cards 2-11 out of a pack (no squad numbers then) and Dave Cole #5 scored the only goal at Grimsby.

Rumours we’ve got 6 with Covid. Game, obviously, would be off.

4 back room staff and 2 players by the looks of it. Isolate them and play on.

Your club wheedled out of playing Oxford TWICE through sheer ineptitude and now you’re pontificating on what and what does not constitute a reason for calling a game off.

Nah, we cleared it up. Oxford bottled it.

Bottled the games and then bottled your press releases. Keep up.

I hope STFC are able to get a team together to play tomorrow but most importantly I hope everyone recovers back to what they consider a state of normality up the road!

Karl Robinson's phone bill is going to be extortionate this month. Shall we do some crowd funding?

I forgot that I’m a representative of Crewe Alexandra and my views mirror the actions of the club. My bad. (Btw Oxford got the games called off).

If only there was a forum somewhere that had recorded my views on the Crewe v Oxford x2 debacle.......

I thought the EFL called games off - not individual clubs.

Ipswich at home tomorrow, was a cracker last season so another shame it'll be behind closed doors.

Both teams have started the season well so should be a cracker.

Ipswich on paper have a really strong squad although without Kayden Jackson.

Not sure what our latest situation is with regard to injuries etc. Would expect a couple of changes in defence and midfield with possibly Jackson and McGrandles coming in although Robbie Gotts may be close.

I may acknowledge MK as a real club if they send Blackpool to rock bottom of the league tomorrow.

The sources that first leaked the issues of Corona in the A420's camp are now stating the game is still on.

Another toughie tomorrow (seem to have said that before every game) against Ipswich. They'll be wanting a reaction after their drumming midweek.

Jackson doubtful due to an ankle injury but should be back on Tuesday so Walsh will have to play three times in a week, which isn't what he needs really after so long without football. Not seen anything to suggest Melbourne is back so I assume he's still out along with Morton.

For what will probably be the first time this season, I'm not sure we'll make any changes. Everyone is performing well.
