League 1 leaders Scunthorpe, with a six point cushion at the top, play host to Oxford looking to keep the advantage they have. However, the U’s will come to Glanford Park with confidence of getting another three points to move them towards a top six spot after overcoming a recent wobble that had seen them drop towards the relegation zone.

Wimbledon, promoted to League 1 via the play-off last season, dropped out of the top seven in midweek when they were held to draw at Millwall. The Dons host Fleetwood, behind them on goal-difference only, with both a point off sixth.

Bury are just above the bottom four going into the meeting with Millwall at Gigg Lane, with the Lions looking for a win to help them push towards a play-off place themselves.

A 5-1 Charlton win in midweek at Bristol Rovers, which preceded the appointment of Karl Robinson as the new Addicks boss, means they are now only three points off the play-offs. However, they’ll come up against a Sheffield United side looking to extend their unbeaten run with the Blades presently in second place under the guidance of Chris Wilder, who turned down the job at the Valley in the summer.

Second-bottom Chesterfield will welcome Bristol Rovers to the Proact Stadium; the Pirates will seek a reaction to that Charlton thrashing against the struggling Spireites, who are four points from safety ahead of this meeting.

Coventry had moved away from relegation trouble but they go into the meeting with MK Dons, who recently saw Steven Gerrard turn down the chance to become the clubs boss, just a point and a place above the side they host at the Ricoh Arena. The Sky Blues know a defeat will see them drop back into the bottom four and MK Dons move out of it.

The Rochdale position, fifth, is something Gillingham would be aiming for. As it is these sides meet at Priestfield with the Gills down in 16th and marginally closer to a relegation position than a play-off one.

Bolton’s promotion aspirations, as they seek to bounce back to the Championship at the first attempt, will see take them to Northampton knowing a win at Sixfields could take them back into second if Sheffield United drop points with dropped points something Peterborough will aim to avoid at Oldham. If Posh are to retain the final play-off place the chances are they’ll have to win at Boundary Park.

The side propping up the rest at the moment are Shrewsbury, who go into the game at Greenhous Meadow against Port Vale five-points from safety with Swindon playing host to Bradford just a couple of points clear of trouble themselves. The Bantams, two points off automatic promotion, will fancy their chances of a win against the Robins at the County Ground.

Walsall’s position is surprising, the Saddlers are only four points from safety whereas Southend’s much improved form of late has seen the Shrimpers race up the table to ninth, just two points off the play-off places.

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.
