Cambridge welcome leaders Doncaster – who haven’t won in five – to the Abbey Stadium looking for a win to keep in play-off contention. Rovers will retain top spot whatever the outcome but would be looking to end a winless run against the U’s.

A three game unbeaten run has seen Accrington move five points clear of the relegation zone. Wycombe’s five game losing run – six of the last seven have ended in defeat – has seen the Chairboys’ play-off hopes take a blow.

Despite winning just once in the last 10 games to slip to 15th Blackpool are still only seven points behind a play-off spot. Barnet head to Bloomfield Road two points better off but they’ve lost three of the last five.

Cheltenham look for a third straight win – the previous two have taken them six points clear of the bottom two – when promotion-chasing Carlisle head to Whaddon Road. The Cumbrians know defeat – and a Portsmouth win – could see them lose an automatic promotion spot. However, a win and the gap to the leaders could be cut.

It’s unlikely that Crawley will manage to make it into the play-offs but any chance means a win against Exeter – who are in a play-off position – is a must. The Grecians have drawn their last three to sit just a point above the chasing pack.

Midtable Grimsby play host to Colchester – who made it back-to-back at the weekend to move back into the top seven – with the visiting U’s looking to maintain their play-off place.

One win in 10 – with six defeats – has seen Hartlepool drop dangerously close to a relegation place. Pools are just three points above the drop zone ahead of Crewe’s – who have lost just once in four – visit.

Plymouth could draw level on points with leaders Doncaster – should they lose – with a win against struggling Notts County. The Pilgrims haven’t won in three though whereas County head to Home Park unbeaten in four and five points clear of trouble.

Three wins in an unbeaten four game run from Portsmouth has taken them to within three points of automatic promotion. If Pompey record another win over Morecambe – who have lost just once in 10 – at Fratton Park they could move into an automatic promotion position if Carlisle are beaten.

A point is all that keeps Stevenage – who have won five of the last six – outside of a play-off place ahead of struggling Leyton Orient’s visit. Orient have won just once in the last 10 – losing seven – with that run seeing the O’s second bottom and three points from safety.

Yeovil have won just once in their last 10 but the 10 point gap between them and trouble should mean the Glovers are safe from trouble. Mansfield’s one defeat in 10 means goal difference alone keeps the Stags outside of the top seven.

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.
