Doncaster’s superior goal difference should mean Rovers – who haven’t won in four – retain top spot even if they slipped to a surprise defeat against relegation threatened Accrington. Stanley are unbeaten in two with that moving them four points from danger.

If Luton are to move into an automatic promotion spot a win at Kenilworth Road against title chasing Plymouth if needed. The Pilgrims visit three points off leaders Carlisle and currently nine ahead of the Hatters.

Despite being in 11th Barnet are only a couple of points off the top seven ahead of the Cambridge visit to the Hive. The U’s are a couple of points – and places – behind the Bees after a first win in seven last time round.

Carlisle’s three wins in the last four has consolidated the Cumbrians’ automatic promotion positions and closed the gap on leaders Doncaster. 5th placed Portsmouth are six points behind their hosts – who are in 3rd – ahead of this promotion meeting at Brunton Park.

A first win in three for Colchester in midweek took the U’s back into a play-off place. They look to defend this place when Hartlepool – who have lost three of the last five – head to the Weston Homes Community Stadium just a place and three points above the bottom two.

Crewe and Stevenage are both on a good run of form. Alexandra’s three games unbeaten has moved them seven points clear of the relegation zone whereas Boro’s four wins – from a five game unbeaten run – means they’re just a point off the top seven.

Having failed to win in three Exeter – who have drawn the last two – has lost touch with the automatic promotion spots but are still well placed to secure a play-off place. Blackpool are in 14th going into this game at St James but only five points off the top seven.

A Leyton Orient win could take them out of the relegation zone. Cheltenham will – due to their superior goal difference – remain ahead of Orient even if they’re beaten. But the Robins would see the three point advantage they hold on the second bottom side lost.

Mansfield’s first defeat in 10 last week meant the Stags dropped out of the play-off places. Newport have lost only once in the last eight but the bottom of the league side are six points from safety heading to Field Mill.

There’s still a chance Morecambe and Grimsby could make it into a play-off place but these chances would be damaged by defeat for either. A point wouldn’t be the worse result for both at the Globe Arena.

Notts County’s two victories in the last three – all unbeaten – has eased their relegation concerns slightly. Yeovil travel to Meadow Lane without a win in four but the Glovers are nine points clear of the relegation zone.

Four successive defeats for Wycombe has seen them drop away from automatic promotion and out of the play-offs too. However, the Chairboys are only a point off the top seven with Crawley eight points away from the play-offs but – more importantly – 10 points clear of relegation.

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.
