Scunthorpe will again retain top spot in League 1 whatever happens in their game at Rochdale. The Iron visit a promotion rival currently holding a four point lead at the top with fifth-placed Dale clinging onto a play-off place by a solitary point.

After losing two of the last four Bradford have lost touch with automatic promotion going into this meeting with Charlton at Valley Parade. Karl Robinson will take charge of his first league game with the Addicks just two points off the top six.

Despite being in 13th place Bristol Rovers are also only two points from a play-off place. The Pirates play host to a Bury side who haven’t won in their last 10. The Shakers have in fact lost the lot!

Fleetwood are three unbeaten and just a point away from the top six ahead of the Walsall visit to the Highbury Stadium with Millwall just a point behind the Cod Army. The Lions would expect to beat rock bottom Shrewsbury at the Den to boost their promotion bid.

The Old Dons against the new Dons in some people’s eyes will see MK Dons play host to AFC Wimbledon. However, it is also commonly thought Wimbledon are ‘the real’ Dons – this grudge match will see the promotion chasing Dons (Wimbledon) just outside of the play-offs with MK Dons just above relegation zone.

Oxford sit around the midtable mark before the meeting with second-bottom Oldham at the Kassam Stadium whereas Chesterfield are chasing a third straight win. If the Spireites can achieve this at promotion chasing Peterborough they’ll have a good chance of climbing out of the bottom four.

Port Vale are another of those midtable sides that are only a couple of points away from a play-off place. The Valiants will host a Northampton side that have lost four in a row to slide down the table.

After losing the long unbeaten run in the league Sheffield United will seek a reaction at Bramall Lane against struggling Swindon. The Blades can return to second if they win against the Robins.

The improved form of just one defeat in the last 10 has seen Southend climb up the table. The Shrimpers are eyeing a play-off place ahead of the visit from struggling Coventry to Roots Hall.

Bolton and Gillingham have to wait until Monday to play. The Trotters will know if Scunthorpe have extended the gap and/or Sheffield United have overtaken them by the time this Macron Stadium fixtures arrives. The Gills are 15th at the time of writing this but only three points from a top six place.

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.
