League 1 Opta Facts - 12-13 Dec

Bradford v Southend

Bradford are unbeaten in four league games against Southend (W2 D2), netting twice in three of those four games.

Southend have won two of their last four games at Valley Parade, but won none of their 12 previous to that (D2 L10).

The Bantams have kept three successive clean sheets at home. They last kept four in a row in September 2013.

The Shrimpers are unbeaten in six league matches, second only to Coventry's unbeaten run of 11 games in League One (W2 D4).


Bury v Chesterfield

Bury have lost three of their last six home league matches with Chesterfield, after going unbeaten in the 27 games before that (W16 D11).

Chesterfield have won four of the last seven league meetings with Bury (D2 L1).

Chesterfield have shipped more goals in the final 15 minutes than any other League One team (12), while no side has conceded more in the opening 15 minutes than the Spireites (7).

The Shakers have lost three of their last four league games (W1). Indeed they had lost just three of the 18 games prior to that run.


Colchester v Barnsley

Colchester won their last league meeting with Barnsley in April, though they haven't won back-to-back games since April 1977.

Barnsley have won four of their last seven league clashes with Colchester (D1 L2).

The U's have lost their last five league matches, shipping 17 goals in the process. It is their worst run of form since losing five on the spin in December 2014.

Barnsley have gone 11 league games without a clean sheet, while their opponents Colchester have gone 10 themselves.


Doncaster v Crewe

Doncaster have lost only one of their last six home meetings with Crewe, winning three of the last four (L1).

Crewe's 2-0 win at Doncaster in November 2012 was their last victory over them, losing two and drawing one since then.

Only Blackpool (10.3%) have posted a worse shot conversion rate than Doncaster (10.8%) in League One this season.

Ben Garratt (Crewe) has made the most saves in League One this season (89).


Fleetwood v Walsall

These two sides met in the FA Cup last month, with Walsall winning 2-0 at the Bescot Stadium.

Walsall won 1-0 in both league clashes with Fleetwood last season; the only two previous Football League meetings between the sides.

Walsall have seen 15 different players score for them this season; a league-high.

The Cod Army have won back to back home games for the first time since November 2014 (a run of three).


Gillingham v Burton

Gillingham have won every home meeting with Burton since they first met in the FA Cup in 2009, winning three league matches between 2010 and 2012.

Burton have conceded seven goals in their last two trips to the Priestfield, losing 3-1 and 4-1.

Gillingham are one of two unbeaten sides at home in League One (along with Coventry) and haven't lost on home soil since April 2015 in the league (W11 D2).

The Gills have won a league-high 15 points from losing positions this season.


Oldham v Millwall

Oldham have won only two of their last 12 home league games against Millwall (D5 L5).

Millwall have scored in 16 consecutive league meetings with Oldham, stretching back to 1997.

Oldham are still looking for their first win on home soil since beating Fleetwood in August (D3 L6), and have lost each of their last three.

Millwall have conceded the most headed goals in League One this season (8).


Peterborough v Shrewsbury

Peterborough have won their last four league matches with Shrewsbury.

The Shrews have kept one clean sheet in their last 21 league meetings with the Posh; that clean sheet was in their only win in their last 11 games at London Road (2-0 in September 2005).

Peterborough have won eight of their 12 league games since Graham Westley took over (D1 L3), winning each of the last four.

Scott Vernon has been directly involved in four of Shrewsbury's last five goals, scoring one and assisting three.


Port Vale v Scunthorpe

Port Vale have won just one of their last 14 league encounters with Scunthorpe (D8 L5).

The Iron are unbeaten in six against Port Vale, though the last three games have been draws (W3).

No side has taken more points from their last five games in League One than Port Vale (12, level with Peterborough and Burton).

Paddy Madden has been involved in a higher share of his team's goals this season than any other League One player (50%).


Swindon v Rochdale

Swindon's 3-2 defeat to Rochdale in this exact fixture last season was their only loss in 16 meetings in their league history against Dale (W9 D6).

There have been 23 goals scored in the last five meetings (all comps) between the two sides.

Swindon are the only League One side yet to keep a clean sheet at home this campaign.

30% of the goals Rochdale have conceded this season have been headers: a league-high share.


Wigan v Blackpool

Wigan have won their last two league meetings with the Seasiders, last winning three in a row in 1998.

Blackpool's 1-0 away defeat to Wigan last season is their only loss in their last five league games at the DW Stadium (W3 D1).

Blackpool have lost six of their last seven away games in League One, drawing the other.

No League One side has kept more clean sheets this season than Wigan (9).


Sheffield United v Coventry

Neither side has scored more than twice in any of the last 14 league meetings at Bramall Lane since a 3-0 win for Coventry in December 1991.

The Sky Blues have lost only one of their last eight matches with the Blades, a 2-1 defeat in May 2014 (W4 D3).

The Blades haven't won any of their last six league matches (D3 L3).

If Coventry avoid defeat here, they will set their best unbeaten run since 1967 (25 games), a year they won the second division title. They've won six and drawn five of their last 11 games.
