Turnaround guaranteed in League One as top four square off

| 07.09.2010

All change can be expected in the upper echelons of League One this weekend, with at least two of the top four sure to drop points.

Top faces second at Hillsborough as leaders Sheffield Wednesday entertain Carlisle, while fourth-placed Peterborough will be looking for a home victory to leapfrog Oldham.

Fresh after avoiding a fall into administration, Wednesday will be keen to maintain their 100 per cent home start to the campaign with a triumph over unbeaten Carlisle.

The Owls are 8/11 to make it three wins from three games at home and have beaten Carlisle three times in their last four meetings.

However, the visitors have claimed a draw in three of their last four visits to Wednesday and this outcome is 5/2.

Peterborough have also won both of their home League One games and host an Oldham side still to lose on their travels.

Oldham are 4/1 to collect an away victory despite not tasting defeat on their last seven trips to Peterborough.

Craig Mackail-Smith has scored four in as many games for Posh and is 5/1 to break the deadlock against Oldham and 9/1 to finish the season as the top scorer in League One.

Furthermore, Oldham are looking to end a sequence of three straight league draws.

Elsewhere, Rochdale go in search of their first home win this season in the league against Walsall and are evens to take the three points.

Walsall’s only away trip to Rochdale since 1995 ended in a 1-0 victory in 2006 and it is 8/1 for this result to be repeated.

Meanwhile, a Walsall win and the draw are valued at 5/2, as both teams attempt to build on their encouraging starts.

Sheffield Wednesday are the 3/1 favourites to be crowned champions of League One at the end of the season. See the complete League One winners market.
