Barnet’s failing play-off bid – they are without a win in four and eight points off the top seven – will see Crawley the next visitors to the Hive as the Bees look to revive these chances. The Reds Devils are without a win in three but should be clear of trouble.

Three successive defeats has seen Carlisle drop out of the top three – they were replaced by Portsmouth in midweek – with Cambridge the next opponents as the Cumbrians look to get back on track. The U’s go to Brunton Park seven points off a play-off place.

Both Colchester and Portsmouth need the points for different reasons at the Weston Homes Community Stadium. A U’s win and they remain in play-off contention whereas a Pompey victory would keep them in the top three and could close the gap on Plymouth in second.

Crewe are still in relegation trouble – as Alexandra are only seven points above the bottom two – but should feel save enough after a victory at Portsmouth last week. Newport are rock bottom heading to Gresty Road – without a win in seven – and 11 points from climbing out of the relegation zone.

Doncaster have only won once in the last seven but the leaders are still looking good to win the title. Cheltenham head to the Keepmoat Stadium unbeaten in four – with three wins – with this run moving the Robins clear of trouble.

With just the one win in five Exeter are at risk of losing a play-off position. However, the Grecians are still only five points away from automatic promotion. Accrington’s five games without defeat means Stanley are six points clear of trouble before this game at St James Park.

A Leyton Orient win – to end three straight defeats – last weekend kept Football League survival hopes alive for struggling Orient. Grimsby will look to put another nail in the coffin at Brisbane Road – and remain with an outside chance of finishing in the top seven – when the Mariners visit.

If Luton can extend their unbeaten run to seven with a win it could take the Hatters into the top three depending on other results. In-form Stevenage are the visitors to Kenilworth Road though with Boro – who have won seven in an unbeaten of eight – just two points behind them and in automatic contention too.

Mansfield bid for a win against second place Plymouth that could take the Stags back into a play-off place. The Pilgrims – who have won just once in six – know second place could come under threat should they slip up at Field Mill.

A midtable finish will be the aim for both Morecambe and Yeovil now with both of them probably clear enough from relegation now but too far off the top seven to mount a late charge.

Notts County and Hartlepool United meet at Meadow Lane knowing a win for either would leave them well placed to kick on and avoid relegation. The Magpies have lost just once in the last six whereas Pools have won their last two.

A potential play-off push could be won or lost when Wycombe and Blackpool face each other at Adams Park. Both are five points off the top seven heading into the weekend but Pools are in the better form as they’re unbeaten in five and have won back-to-back games.

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.
