Doncaster will look to extend the run of just one defeat in the last 10 – five of the last six unbeaten have been won – when league leaders Rovers host struggling Crewe. Alexandra haven’t won in eight and are sliding towards the relegation places.

Relegation threatened Accrington – Stanley are just two points off the bottom 2 – will look to upset promotion chasing Carlisle. The Cumbrians haven’t won in three – with two on these games lost – and know if they fail to win at the Crown Ground they could lose the third and final automatic promotion spot come 5pm.

If Barnet can get back to winning ways – as would be expected at the Hive – they could move into the top 7 once again. Bottom placed Newport ended an eight game losing run with a point last weekend but the Exiles need more to close the six points between them and Football League survival.

Blackpool will hope – having failed to win in three – the FA Cup win at Barnsley in midweek can spur them on to a play-off push once again. Pools host Yeovil looking to make inroads into the five points between them and the top 7.

Cambridge are unbeaten in eight but two draws in the last three have seen the U’s drop out of a play-off place. They’ll welcome improving Mansfield – unbeaten in four – to the Abbey Stadium on Saturday.

A Cheltenham win last weekend took them out of the relegation zone with the Robins looking to make it back-to-back victories against promotion chasing Plymouth. The Pilgrims – in 2nd place but four points off the leaders – narrowly lost to Liverpool in an FA Cup replay in midweek and would be expected to win at Whaddon Road.

Crawley are looking to make it three wins in a row when promotion chasing Portsmouth visit. The Red Devils will have one eye on a play-off push whereas Pompey know a win at the Broadfield Stadium and a Carlisle failure to win would put them into 3rd so it’s all to play for.

Two of the most in-form sides in League 2 will meet at St James Park when Exeter host Colchester. The Grecians are unbeaten in eight – a run that has taken them to within four points of a play-off place – but with the U’s winning seven from a nine game unbeaten run they have – like Exeter really – gone from a relegation threatened side to one in the top 7 with genuine promotion aspirations.

Grimsby are also just outside of a play-off place but would look for a three point return against struggling Notts County. The Magpies ended a 10 game losing run in Kevin Nolan’s first in charge last weekend but a draw couldn’t prevent them from dropping into the relegation zone.

A run of just two wins in 10 finally cost Craig Hignett his Hartlepool job last weekend. The former Middlesbrough coach has been replaced by the experienced Dave Jones – he’ll officially take charge next week – with Pools playing host to Stevenage.

Leyton Orient will look to end a three game losing run when Morecambe visit Brisbane Road. Orient know another defeat – with other results going against them – and they could drop to second bottom. The visiting Shrimps are unbeaten in three.

Play-off rivals Wycombe and Luton will meet in a big promotion battle at Adams Park. The Chairboys will look to add to the run – they haven’t lost in the last 10 – with the Hatters’ recent league form suggesting they will! Should such a run of results – for Luton – continue we’ll see a home win.

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.

Ahead of the game we’re looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don’t just look also have a say. We don’t just want your vote, which you can do to the right, we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
