Doncaster could – with nearest rivals Plymouth not in action – open up a seven point lead at the top of the table if they come away from Yeovil with a fifth straight win against. These odds are improved as the Glovers haven’t won in seven.

Having failed to win in four Carlisle know they’re at risk of losing a top 3 place if they are beaten by play-off chasing Barnet. The Cumbrians would move to within three points of Plymouth – albeit leaving the 2nd place side with two games in hand – though with a win but the Bees know a victory that could put them into a play-off position.

Colchester’s first defeat in 10 didn’t cost the U’s a play-off position but it did allow their rivals to close the gap. Potential play-off rivals Wycombe head to the Weston Homes Community Stadium hoping to add to an unbeaten run built up.

The one win in the last 10 has seen Crewe slip towards relegation trouble. Cheltenham could close to within a point of Alexandra if they won at Gresty Road with this also definitely assuring the Robins of a place outside of the relegation zone whatever the other results.

Luton hold a play-off place with Cambridge looking to move back into one. A Hatters defeat and they could well drop out of the top 7 with the U’s having a good chance of taking one.

Three wins in the last five unbeaten have seen Mansfield move away from potential relegation trouble to within touching distance of the play-offs. A win over relegation threatened Leyton Orient could improve those chances with Orient looking to end a three game losing run that might see them drop into the relegation zone otherwise.

Morecambe’s one defeat in the last five has eased relegation concerns with Accrington visiting the Globe Arena full of concerns about this with Stanley only three points clear of the bottom 2.

Bottom of the league Newport – who are five points from safety – look to make it three unbeaten when hosting Hartlepool who will be under the guidance of Dave Jones – who was watching on as Pools won last weekend – for the first time at Rodney Parade.

Kevin Nolan takes charge of his third Notts County game looking for a first win that could take the Magpies out of a relegation place. Crawley head to Meadow Lane looking for a third straight win that could boost their play-off hopes.

Portsmouth – who saw a game at Crawley postponed last week – know a win over Exeter could be enough to take then into an automatic promotion place. A Fratton Park win coupled with a Carlisle defeat and Pompey would go 3rd whereas a Grecians wins – to make it 10 unbeaten – and they could move into the top 7.

Stevenage ended a previous three game losing run with a win but are on for such a run again should Boro suffer defeat against Grimsby. The Mariners visit just a point off the play-offs.

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.
