Twenty-three team League One takes place tomorrow for the first time, after a tumultuous few weeks culminating in Bury’s expulsion. RED claims emotion only clouds the mind, and it’s hard not to feel something as Bury’s 125-year League membership has been forcibly ended at the hands of an owner who wasn’t even subject to the League’s Fit and Proper Persons Test.
Bolton have survived, and they travel to Gillingham. After successive 5-0 defeats, bookmakers appear to be reluctant to provide odds, but RED will do. Gillingham are 56% likely to win, though maybe not 5-0. 1-0 is 11.4%, 2-0 is 10%.
