Rochdale bid to dent Sheffield United’s title bid whilst getting back into play-off contention. In order to do this Dale will have to collect a win, which they haven’t managed in the last seven. The Blades know whatever the result they’ll retain the League 1 lead but if the five game unbeaten run is extended with a fourth win the seven point lead held will – at least – remain in place.

Bolton missed the chance to move into an automatic place in midweek. If the Trotters can see off the challenge of Wimbledon that could happen on Saturday but the Dons – after successive wins – visit the Macon Stadium unbeaten in three.

Securing a play-off position is the aim of both Bradford and Peterborough. However, the Bantams still have automatic ambitions too. Posh have lost three of the last four and head to Valley Parade in desperate need of a win but face a side unbeaten in the league at home in a year.

The Bury survival bid has been boosted by four wins in the last five to climb out of the relegation zone. Gillingham are a point and a place worse off but with just one win in 10 the Gills are in relegation form. Defeat for the Gills at Gigg Lane and they could drop into the bottom four.

Four wins in the last six has helped Millwall into the top six. The Lions look to retain this with a victory over and MK Dons side who head to the Den looking to extend an unbeaten run to three.

With Northampton losing two of their last three the Cobblers have dropped to within four points of the relegation zone. However, Charlton go to Sixfields on an even worse run of form as the Addicks have lost four of the last five – and are without a win in seven – to sit just two points better off.

Having won five of the last six Oxford have move back into potential play-off contention ahead of the visit from Bristol Rovers. The Pirates are the draw specialists as they go to the Kassam Stadium have collected a point from each of the last six.

A huge battle between Scunthorpe and Fleetwood at the top could have an import baring on who might finish as possible runners up to Sheffield United. A draw for the Iron – who haven’t won in six – would keep them 2nd but if the Cod Army can continue their impressive run with a fourth straight win they’ll move into an automatic promotion place.

Shrewsbury head into the weekend with a five point gap between them and relegation. The Shrews will look to maintain this – if not extend it – against bottom of the league Coventry. The Sky Blues – who are 14 points from safety – are facing near certain relegation this season.

A Southend win – as they bid to react to defeat in the last game – against struggling Port Vale could take the Shrimpers back into the play-offs. Vale have won just once in the last 10 before the trip to Roots Hall and are five points from safety.

If Swindon can extend the three game unbeaten run with a third straight win against relegation rivals Chesterfield it could take the Robins out of the relegation zone. The second bottom Spireites haven’t won in seven with this seeing them 11 points from safety and likely to follow Coventry into League 2.

Midtable Walsall look to react to defeat in the last game against an Oldham side that have come into form at the right time. Four win in seven has helped the Latics – who are unbeaten in the last five – climb out of the relegation zone. However, they’re just a place and three points above the bottom four.

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.
