The action has already gotten under way in as Coventry hosted promotion-chasing Sheffield United on Thursday – this game at the Ricoh Arena saw the Blades secure a late 2-1 win to move up to 2nd, behind leaders Scunthorpe on goal difference alone.

If Scunthorpe are to retain their hopes of leading the table into Christmas and the New Year – which would bode well for the second half of the campaign – they’ll have to collect the points against Millwall. However, the Lions head to Glanford Park in search of a win to kick start their own play-off push after a shock defeat a week ago.

AFC Wimbledon will look to put the MK Dons defeat behind them and get the play-off push back on track when they welcome Port Vale to Kingsmeadow on Saturday.

The Bury form is most definitely that of a side facing promotion as they’ve lost each of their last 10 games going into this meeting at Gigg Lane against Oxford, 14th and comfortable.

Karl Robinson will hope he can finally get a win under his belt with Charlton. His side have drawn twice and lost – an FA Cup replay with former club MK Dons – once since his appointment. However, the Addicks have scored only once in this process ahead of the Peterborough visit to the Valley.

Again Chesterfield go into the weekend looking for a win that could take them out of the bottom four – the problem is they welcome automatic promotion chasing Bolton to the Proact Stadium and the Trotters have lost only once in their last 10.

Gillingham will look to react to a heavy defeat – against Bolton – when they host an MK Dons side that are one place and two points behind them in 18th going into this game at Priestfield.

Having ended a losing run Northampton will look to add another when they welcome Rochdale to Sixfields. Dale will be keen to go away with the points to consolidate a play-off place though.

A win for Southend and they know they could move into the top six. They head to an Oldham side in the bottom four that has only won twice in the last eight – that includes none of the last six.

Bottom-placed Shrewsbury did win their last game so they’ll seek the rarity of successive wins when they welcome play-off chasing Bristol Rovers to Greenhous Meadow.

Swindon are also battling against relegation and know they could slip perilously close to the bottom four should they lose at the County Ground against a Fleetwood side who know a win could take them into a play-off place.

Last season Walsall were pushing for promotion but this season it’s a struggle at the wrong end of the table for the Saddlers. However, Bradford are doing pretty well under Stuart McCall since his return with the Bantams 4th heading into this game.

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.
