With Swindon seven points from safety time is now running out for them to get out of relegation trouble. Millwall head to the County Ground for the early kick off looking for a win to return to a play-off place, currently goal difference is keeping the Lions out of the top six.

AFC Wimbledon are bidding to extend an unbeaten run to three against promotion chasing Southend. The Shrimpers know a win at Kingsmeadow should be enough to retain a place in the top six.

17th place Bury currently hold a four point advantage over the clubs below them in the relegation zone. Fleetwood head to Gigg Lane seeking a victory to potentially close the four point gap between them and promotion rivals Bolton, who hold the second automatic promotion spot.

With second bottom Chesterfield 10 points from safety relegation looks highly likely for the Spireites. Rochdale will look to push them closer to this with a second victory in three that could keep a live a late push for a play off place.

Coventry reduced the gap between them and safety to 14 points with a midweek win but the Sky Blues are still set for relegation. Play off chasing Bristol Rovers are three points off the top six ahead of the meeting with the side at the foot of the League 1 table.

Successive defeats have seen Gillingham dragged back into relegation trouble as the Gills are now just four points above the bottom four. Peterborough are without a win in five ahead of the trip to Priestfield.

Northampton should be safe from the threat of relegation with Oxford likely to be in League 1 next season as well as the U’s are probably too far off the top six. However, a victory at Sixfields could change this.

The Oldham battle to avoid relegation will bring title chasing Sheffield United to Boundary Park next. The Latics are a couple of places and three points clear of trouble at the moment with the Blades – unbeaten in nine – six points clear of Bolton at the top.

Defeat in the midweek game in hand saw Port Vale miss the chance to move out of the bottom four. Vale have another chance to potentially do this if they can beat MK Dons – who have won only once in the last five – at Vale Park and Shrewsbury fail to claim a point.

Shrewsbury had moved clear of trouble but three without a win has left them just a place and two points clear of the bottom four. Defeat from promotion chasing Bolton – who have won four in a row – could see the Shrews drop into the relegation zone. The Trotters are six points behind leaders Sheffield United and four points clear of Fleetwood.

The game on Sunday could make a huge difference to the promotion chances of Scunthorpe and Bradford. One win in 10 has seen the Irons drop from automatic contention with a play-off place now in doubt with the Bantams a place and two points better off.

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.
