Wimbledon and Oldham will meet in League 1 again next season after the Latics recently secured their own safety – the Dons will finish the highest though whatever the outcome at Kingsmeadow.

A point for Bolton from the visit of Peterborough and they’ll be confirmed as runners up to Sheffield United whatever Fleetwood do… well, unless the Cod Army can win something like 10-0, which isn’t likely.

Bristol Rovers can’t make a top-six place now but are assured of a 10th-place finish regardless. A third successive Millwall defeat at the chances are the Lions, sixth, will miss out on the play-offs but a win would make sure.

A disappointing Charlton season has ended on a high with three wins in a four game unbeaten run – a third successive Addicks win and they could end midtable. Swindon, 22nd, on the other hand will play in League 2 next season having seen relegation confirmed last week.

Fleetwood must beat Port Vale to have any chance of finishing ahead of Bolton in the second automatic promotion spot, which would also require the Trotters to lose. 21st-placed Vale’s late winner against Walsall in midweek means a win at the Highbury Stadium and they stay up if Bury or Gillingham are beaten – a Gills draw would also be enough if three points are collected from the promotion chasing side.

Despite a run of seven without a win Northampton can’t be dragged into the relegation battle so they’ll stay in League 1 regardless – a Gillingham win and so will they. However, anything less and the Gills would be relegated if Port Vale are victorious at Fleetwood.

Oxford will fall just short of the play-offs. Victory and they could finish as high as seventh but the U’s can’t finish any lower than 10th, a place lower than their current position. Shrewsbury, 18th, are effectively safe as they will need to be absolutely hammered, Bury and Gillingham both need to win and Port Vale would need a handsome (to overthrow a 10 goal deficit) victory to see the Shrews relegated.

A Rochdale win against Bradford, fifth, and they could join the Bantams in the play-offs. However, even a victory might not be enough as Millwall and Southend have the advantage. If City go away from Spotland with the points they could finish third but can’t finish any lower than the current position.

Four wins in a row – five in the last six in fact – hasn’t been enough to guide Scunthorpe into automatic contention so the Iron will have to come through the play-offs to go up. Coventry will almost certainly finish second-bottom if they avoid defeat – victory at Glanford Park and it’s definitely the case.

Top meets bottom as Sheffield United take on Chesterfield. A seventh Blades win in a row and the champions will finish the season with 100 points – the Spireites will play in League 2 next season, victory at Bramall Lane and they could at least move off the foot of the table above Coventry?

A Southend win from the visit of Bury and they will finish in sixth above Millwall, who currently hold the final play-of spot, if they are beaten – a draw would do if the Lions are beaten and Rochdale fail to win. The Shakers also have plenty to play for as a lost and they could be relegated.

Walsall go into the visit of MK Dons, 12th, a place behind on goal difference alone – if there’s a winner this side will finish 12th the lowest possible for either is 15th.

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.
