Friday will see a few games played, which includes Millwall seeking a third straight win. The Lions probably wouldn’t take a top six place even with a victory but could remain just goal difference from this if they beat Gillingham. The Gills would literally have to be beaten five or six nil at the Den so merely a win would be taken first and foremost.

Having lost two in a row MK Dons will look to end the year on a high when hosting fellow strugglers Swindon. The Robins are just a place below – in 19th – their hosts on goal difference alone.

Port Vale’s one win in the last 10 is seeing them slip towards the bottom four ahead of the meeting with Chesterfield. The visitors to Vale Park – who have lost seven of their previous 10 – know a win would probably see them end the year out of the relegation zone.

Whatever the result Rochdale will end 2016 in a play-off position. However, Dale know a fourth straight win would keep them in 4th. Whereas Shrewsbury visit Spotland looking for a victory that could – in fact probably would – take them out of the bottom four.

As they play in one of the early kick offs on New Year Day Sheffield United know they could – albeit temporarily – move to the summit. A fourth straight Blades win would take them above Scunthorpe. Chris Wilder’s former side Northampton will visit Bramall Lane looking for an upset though.

The Southend form to end 2016 took them into a play-off place. They too kick off ahead of others on Sunday so can consolidate that with a win over Charlton. However, the Addicks head to Roots Hall having won for the first time under Karl Robinson – something they’ll look to build on.

A huge promotion six pointer at the Macron Stadium will see 3rd place Bolton host leaders Scunthorpe. A win for the Trotters and – depending on the Sheffield United outcome – they could end the day as the new leaders but if the Iron win they’ll retain top spot to start the New Year.

Bradford’s promotion bid stalled at the end of the year as the Bantams have drawn three of their last four games – losing the other. They host struggling Bury who ended the losing run with a point to move out of the bottom four.

Two wins in Bristol Rovers’ last seven has also seen them slip off the play-off places. Having won just twice in their last eight the same applies to Wimbledon ahead of this meeting at the Memorial Stadium.

Fleetwood are unbeaten in their last six but have only won three with the last two drawn. The Cod Army will look to return to winning ways and boost their play-off hopes against bottom placed Oldham – the Latics have won just once in their last 10.

Oxford lost their last game whereas Walsall won. Only goal difference separates the sides ahead of this Kassam Stadium meeting with the U’s just ahead of the Saddlers in 14th.

As they’ve lost just once in their last seven Peterborough ended 2016 in good form. However, a draw meant Posh dropped out of the top six. They’ll look to return to a play-off place when hosting struggling Coventry.

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.
