7 Football League matches you should keep your eye on this weekend



This Halloween weekend is an extended one, with Leeds vs Blackburn kicking us off on Thursday night in the Sky Bet Championship.

Rowett's side face Wolves

The weekend rumbles on until Sunday, where Dagenham & Redbridge entertain Luton Town in League 2.

Here are perhaps the most eye-catching fixtures you should follow…..

Leeds vs Blackburn, Elland Road, Thursday 29th October, 7.45 pm. (Sky Bet Championship)

Getting us underway is a mouth-watering clash between the 17th and 18th placed sides.

The two sides are also going through a sticky spells; two wins each in their last 10 matches. Can Blackburn bounce back from their disappointing Lancashire derby defeat to Burnley?

Birmingham vs Wolves, St Andrew’s, Saturday 31st October, 12.30 pm. (Sky Bet Championship)

The Wolverhampton outfit make the annual 18 mile trip to their local rivals Birmingham.

Wolves need to stop the rot, they have lost their last three Championship matches, including a 3-1 defeat to Middlesbrough last time out.

In stark contrast, Birmingham have won four of their last five, but can they do it again in front of their home faithful?

Reading vs Brighton, Madejski Stadium, Saturday 31st October, 3 pm. (Sky Bet Championship)

League leaders Brighton travel to the Royals for this Championship duel.

The Seagulls are unbeaten all year, but couldn’t beat Preston North End last weekend.

Will Tomer Hemed add to his five goals so far this season?

Port Vale vs Shrewsbury, Vale Park, Saturday 31st October, 3 pm. (Sky Bet League 1)

An interesting match is in store in Stoke-on-Trent.

Both Vale and Shrewsbury have got 17 points from their 15 games this season; in fact the only thing separating them is goals scored.

After beating high-flying Bury last Saturday, can they cash in on that impressive win?

Walsall vs Gillingham, Bescot Stadium, Saturday 31st October, 3pm. (Sky Bet League 1)

Arguably the most anticipated fixture from the Football League this weekend is the top two meeting at Bescot Stadium.

The game is beautifully poised, with Gillingham scoring the second highest amount of goals in the league, and Walsall with the best defence.

Can Walsall leapfrog Kent’s highest placed side?

Leyton Orient vs Accrington, Brisbane Road, Saturday 31st October, 3pm. (Sky Bet League 2)

Leyton Orient started off the season in extraordinary form, winning their first five games.

However, they have since slightly fell of the pace, now placed in sixth.

Accrington have slowly risen up the table, and find themselves just a point behind the O’s.

With Plymouth Argyle six and seven points ahead of the teams at the summit of the table respectively, a win would certainly help the victors keep chase.

Mansfield vs Wycombe, Field Mill, Saturday 31st October, 3pm (Sky Bet League 2)

Wycombe’s story is much like that of Orient’s, an impressive start has tailed off leaving Wycombe lying in 10th.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side are looking to bounce back after not winning in their last four.

Mansfield, however, are a different story, winning four of their last six matches. Will form paint the picture of this match or can Wycombe reverse their woes.
