Three successive wins have seen Scunthorpe capitalise on title rivals Sheffield United’s blip. The Iron head to Southend – just outside the play-offs and beaten just once in the last 10 – looking for a win that would ensure they retain top spot.

Bradford have lost only once in the last nine – a lot have been drawn though – to consolidate a play-off place ahead of Gillingham’s visit the Valley Parade. The Gills’ six game winless run sees them just five points clear of trouble.

If the run from the last five Charlton games continues into the sixth the visit from Fleetwood would end in a draw. However, the Addicks would want this unbeaten run to extend with a victory if a late push for the play-offs is possible. Fleetwood haven’t lost any of the last 10 in League 1 with the Cod Army having one eye on a potential automatic spot.

Relegation rivals Chesterfield and Oldham meet at the Proact Stadium in a huge six pointer. A win for the home side and the Spireites could move out of the relegation zone whereas the Latics could potentially be within a point of safety if they won.

Coventry’s failure to win any of the last 10 – eight have ended in defeat – leaves them rooted to the foot of the table, eight points from safety and looking relegation squarely in the face. Millwall visit the Ricoh Arena unbeaten in seven – the last four have been drawn – looking for a victory that could close the four points between the Lions and a play-off place.

The improved form of MK Dons lately – they have won three from the last four unbeaten – has taken them clear of trouble. 3rd placed Bolton’s automatic promotion bid has stalled recently with a three game winless run including defeats in the last two.

Having won just once in the last 10 Port Vale go into the meeting with Peterborough holding just a five point advantage over the bottom 4. Vale will hope home advantage will help when Posh – who have lost three of the last four – visit Vale Park.

Rochdale will be keen to avoid a hat trick of defeats as should that happen against Bristol Rovers – aiming to breach that three point gap between themselves and Dale in the final play-off place – there’s every chance a top 6 place will be lost this weekend.

The three game winless run Sheffield United are on – including two defeats – is something the Blades will be keen to end when Wimbledon visit Bramall Lane. A home win could take them back to the summit – depending on Scunthorpe’s result – with the Dons looking to extend an unbeaten run to four.

Shrewsbury’s four game unbeaten run has seen them move above the relegation zone. However, the Shrews are just two points above Bury – who hold that fourth and final relegation spot – ahead of the Shakers’ visit to Greenhous Meadow in another big relegation clash this weekend.

A four game unbeaten Walsall run – the last two have been drawn – has eased relegation concerns and revived an outside chance of a play-off push ahead of Northampton’s visit. The Cobblers ended a five game losing run with a much needed victory last time round to move six points clear of the drop zone.

Sunday’s action will see Swindon look to avoid a third straight defeat when Oxford – who thrashed Newcastle in the FA Cup last weekend – visit the County Ground. The Robins could go into this game having dropped into the relegation zone.

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.
