What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment come the full time whistle.

Blackburn, the League One favourites, will look to get some first points on the board at Ewood Park against Doncaster, who marked their return from League Two with a draw last time round.

Fleetwood technically lead the way having won their opening game, the Cod Army will look to retain that position against Northampton.

Having won League Two last season, Portsmouth started with a win and travel to Oxford next whereas Plymouth, who finished behind Pompey in second, will look to recover from an opening day defeat as Charlton head to Devon.

Finishing rock bottom in the Championship last season, defeat in the opening game this term sees the Millers go into this weekend at the foot of League One, which they'll hope to change against Southend.


Saturday 12th August
AFC Wimbledon v Shrewsbury Town 15:00
Blackburn Rovers v Doncaster Rovers 15:00
Blackpool v Milton Keynes Dons 15:00

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We'll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we're looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don't just look also have a say. We don't just want your vote, which you can do to the right; we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.

Beneficial for all concerned

Four defeats in five came to an end at the weekend as Pompey won at Oldham. Victory was great, but the decision to drop Christian Burgess was a main talking point ahead of this game.
