It’s likely that both Wimbledon and Bristol Rovers will still be in League 1 next season. However, a Pirates win at Kingsmeadow and they might yet be able to overturn the six points between them and the top six?

Having failed to win if three Bury could do with the points at Gigg Lane to, at least, maintain a three point cushion on the bottom four. Play-off chasing, fourth place, Bradford – beaten just once in the last nine – are just three points above seventh place Millwall.

One win in 10 – with seven defeats, including one in midweek – means Charlton go into the meeting with Southend just four points above the relegation zone. The Shrimpers, also beaten in the week – a first in five, are currently above Millwall in the final play-off spot on goal difference.

Second bottom Chesterfield, 11 points from safety, are probably heading for relegation but Port Vale aren’t going to want to join the Spireites in League 2 next season. Vale are a place, but two points, above the bottom four.

A first defeat in three for bottom side Coventry, at title chasing Sheffield United on Tuesday, pushed the Sky Blues closer to League 2 – Peterborough will look do this as they aim for a third straight win at the Ricoh Arena.

Should Gillingham lose a fifth game in a row they could end the weekend in the relegation zone? Millwall on the other hand know a win, which would be a third in a row, at Priestfield could move them into the top six.

As fate would have it Northampton could be the side against which Sheffield United, under the guidance of Chris Wilder – who won the League 2 title as Cobblers boss last season, confirm promotion to the Championship. Another Blades win and they’ll also close in on the title.

Oldham will look to end a three game winless run to increase the two point lead they have on the bottom four. Third place Fleetwood, following a first win in four, are well placed for the play-offs but are unlikely to catch Bolton, second.

Having pushed for the title, certainly automatic promotion, for large spells of this season Scunthorpe could find themselves outside of the top six if the Iron are beaten by automatic promotion chasing Bolton. The Trotters are six points off leaders Sheffield United but seven ahead of third place Fleetwood.

Four successive defeat – in a six game winless run – have pushed Shrewsbury into the relegation zone. The Shrews desperately need the points against Rochdale – five points off the top six, so Dale will still fancy a play-off push – at Greenhous Meadow.

A third straight Swindon win against MK Dons – also looking for a third straight win, unbeaten in four – could be enough to take the Robins out of the relegation zone?

Walsall and Oxford meet at the Banks’s Stadium with this a meeting that’s set to take place next season too – the Saddlers are too far off the top six and the U’s are unlikely to overturn a deficit, seven points, to the play-off spots.

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.
