SCUNTHORPE UNITED v YEOVIL TOWN

In-form Yeovil, who won 3-1 at Brentford on Tuesday, are on their travels again at Scunthorpe.

The Glovers have signed Chelsea youngster Archange Nkumu on a month loan with a view to a longer deal.

The 18-year-old will be available for the Scunthorpe game and was a member of the Chelsea Youth team which won the Youth FA Cup last season.

ACCRINGTON STANLEY v EXETER CITY

Exeter City will go into the match at Accrington Stanley with confidence high following Tuesday night's 2-1 win over Aldershot Town.

Jamie Cureton scored both goals at the Recreation Ground. Cureton's double means he has already equalled last season's tally of two – one of which came for Leyton Orient – and the other for Exeter City when he was on loan during the second half of the campaign.

Injuries and a loss of form resulted in a frustrating season for the Bristol-born striker, who had netted 20 times in the Grecians' 2010/11 npower League One campaign.

Accrington have started the season in impressive form. They won their opening two games against Southend and Port Vale.

OXFORD UNITED v PLYMOUTH ARGYLE

The Pilgrims look as if they'll have to be at their best if they're to get anything at Oxford United.

Oxford are tipped by the bookies to be pushing for promotion this season. Argyle picked up their first point of the campaign with a goalless draw at Dagenham. But that was thanks mainly to the heroics of goalkeeper Jake Cole and some resolute defending.

Argyle are still without the injured Rene Gilmartin, Durrell Berry Jamie Lowry and Rhys Griffiths.

TORQUAY UNITED v ROCHDALE

Torquay United manager Martin Ling will call on youth after injuries to four senior players.

Damon Lathrope and winger Lloyd Macklin both picked up injuries in Tuesday's draw with Cheltenham. Lathrope has suspected cartilage damage and Macklin was carried off with a reported ruptured hamstring.

Danny Stevens is making steady progress in his recovery from a thigh strain that has blighted the start to his season.
