Accrington, the in-form side in League 2 that saw John Coleman named Manager of the Month for March, will look to keep alive an outside chance of pushing for the play-off with a win in the visit of Crewe – Alexandra have lost just once in four.

It’ll be midtable, at best, for Barnet after a poor slump in form saw them drop away from promotion contention. Luton on the other hand head to the Hive very much in play-off contention.

A first defeat in 10 for Blackpool saw them drop out of the top seven last time round. Grimsby will be in League 2 next season, a failure to win at Bloomfield Road and the likelihood is so too will Pools.

Cambridge, five points off the top seven, still hold play-offs hopes whereas Leyton Orient are all but certain to drop out of the Football League. Bottom of the league Orient, who have lost five in a row, are nine points from safety.

Carlisle’s first win in eight took them back into the top seven, back in promotion contention, ahead of the visit of Notts County. The Magpies are on a three game winning run – four of the last five have been won – going to Brunton Park.

The recent Colchester form would suggest the U’s will collect a win when promotion chasing Stevenage visit the Weston Homes Community Stadium. But Boro, beaten just once in the last 10, will want they points as they still hold automatic promotion hopes – Stevenage are six points behind Portsmouth, third.

Crawley will stay in League 2 next season but Plymouth wont. The biggest question is, will the Pilgrims go up as champions or runners up? However, this could still be third with Portsmouth four points behind them – the sides meet on Good Friday.

Doncaster WILL go up, but as champions or second? With a six point advantage over second place Plymouth, along with 10 on Portsmouth in third, the chances of winning the title will improve if Donny see of the challenge of Mansfield – four points off the top seven – at the Keepmoat Stadium.

An Exeter win at St James Park and the Grecians will move closer to securing a play-off spot. However, Newport head to Devon looking for back-to-back win – the Exiles are currently five points adrift of safety.

It’s fortunate for Morecambe that they hold a 10 points advantage over second bottom Newport as the recent form – seven successive defeats – is that of a relegation team. Hartlepool have lost the last three but go to the Globe Arena a place, yet four points, above the bottom two.

Portsmouth will maintain a six point advantage, at least, over the automatic promotion chasing pack with a win over Yeovil. Pompey will look to keep a top three finish first and foremost but also have eyes on second place Plymouth, four points in front of them, ahead of the Fratton Park meeting next Friday. The Glovers, without a win in four – and just the one in the last 10, will look to cause an upset.

With the gap to the top seven standing at seven points Wycombe still have a good chance of making the play-offs. Cheltenham’s first win in five should have secured their Football League status once and for all.

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.
