There are three midweek fixtures in League One, with the stand out tie coming at Valley Parade as play-off hopefuls Bradford City host the leaders Burton Albion.

With none of the five teams below them in action, the Brewers have the chance to extend their lead over second-placed Wigan to seven points, and third-placed Gillingham to 11 points.

However, it won’t be easy against the Bantams, who are only three points outside of the top six themselves, despite a goalless draw against Bury at the weekend.

Elsewhere, Coventry City will look to get their promotion hopes back on track when they travel to 19th-placed Shrewsbury Town.

The Sky Blues have lost their last three matches, including a 1-0 home defeat to Rochdale on Saturday.

The Shrews, meanwhile, registered a crucial 1-0 win away at fellow relegation candidates Doncaster Rovers last time out, meaning they are now five points above the bottom four.

Finally, 20th-placed Rovers will look to pull themselves away from the relegation places when they make the short trip to Scunthorpe, who still harbour play-off ambitions themselves.

The Iron would be five points from the top six with a win, but they have drawn their last three league games.
