Table topping Sheffield United bid to extend a six game winning run with another at Walsall to at least maintain a four point lead the Blades now have at the top. The Saddlers – who haven’t won in the last two – will be looking to spoil this run though.

Wimbledon’s play-off push has stalled in recent weeks with the Dons now a place below their 12th placed visitors Oxford.

As Bolton were in FA Cup action last weekend the Trotters dropped down to 3rd place. They host struggling Swindon aiming for a win to potentially return to the automatic promotion places. The Robins haven’t won in four and are just four points above the drop zone.

Winless in 10 Bury – who have dropped back into a relegation place – welcome play-off chasing Peterborough to Gigg Lane. Posh are unbeaten in five but as they’ve drawn the last three have dropped out of the top 6.

Bitter rivals Charlton – who lost the reverse fixture ahead of Christmas – and Millwall meet at the Valley. The Lions are a place above the Addicks – but only two points off the play-offs – in 10th and hold a three point advantage ahead of this game.

Having lost for a third time in four games Chesterfield sacked Danny Wilson last weekend. A huge relegation meeting with Coventry sees the Spireites play host to the second bottom Sky Blues. A win for either could take them out of the bottom 4.

Fleetwood’s eight game unbeaten run has seen the Cod Army into a play-off place. However, visiting Bristol Rovers are right on their coattails with them just a point off the top 6 in 8th place.

Rob Page initially looked as if he had avoided the sack at Northampton after an eighth defeat in 10 – and some badly chosen words after the last loss – but he didn’t. The Cobblers will host 2nd place Scunthorpe with the Iron seeking a win to assure they retain an automatic promotion place and potentially close the gap on the leaders.

Bottom of the league Oldham are without a win in their last 10. The Latics could potentially climb out of the bottom 4 with a win against Gillingham at Boundary Park though. Defeat for the Gills and they’ll be dragged closer to a potential relegation battle.

Port Vale and MK Dons have a bit of space between them and the relegation places but not much – they meet at Vale Park with both sides knowing a win could be crucial.

A win could also be crucial for Shrewsbury or Bradford with both sides in need of the points for differing reasons. A Shrews win would ensure they stay out of the relegation zone whereas a Bantams win would keep them 4th and could close the gap on the automatic promotion places.

Southend have only lost once in their last 10 – the last game against Sheffield United – so the Shrimpers will look for a reaction against potential play-off rivals Rochdale. Dale are 5th having won five in a row ahead of the trip to Roots Hall.

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.
