Decisive games are on offer at both ends of League Two this weekend, with the highlight seeing second-placed Oxford travel to Plymouth in third.
United have won their last three but are only above their Devon opponents on goal difference. A 4-0 demolition against a struggling York side in midweek put them above Argyle, who slipped up against Barnet. Neither side will want to slip up at Home Park with Accrington situated just eight points behind with two matches in-hand in the race for automatic promotion.
Also unsure of whether they will be playing in League Two next year are bottom club Dagenham & Redbridge, and they face a huge clash when they host the team above them in the table, York City.
The Daggers are seven points and will see the game against City, who have lost their last four, as an ideal opportunity to pick up three points. However, John Still’s side are without a win in eight themselves.
Top team Northampton, who are 11 points clear at the summit, have drawn their last two matches and face a long trip north to Carlisle on Saturday.
The Cobblers look almost certain to secure the title unless they suffer a dramatic loss of form.
The Cumbrian outfit have only lost three times at home from 16 matches, taking an impressive 29 points, so they could be worthy adversaries to Town.
Elsewhere, Wimbledon in eighth will be looking to break into the play-off places the hard way, with a visit from Accrington in fourth.
After a defeat to Oxford and a draw to Northampton, Wimbledon’s tough run does not relent. Stanley’s damaging loss to a lowly Yeovil in midweek seriously dented their chances of a top-three finish, but they do still have two games in-hand on the Oxford and Plymouth, who face off this weekend.
Portsmouth climbed to fifth after taking four points from six since last weekend and they make the trip to Stevenage, who are just eight points above the drop.
Meanwhile, Yeovil have moved six points clear of the bottom-two after going four games unbeaten, and take on a Mansfield side that only have one win in four and have dropped out of the play-offs into 10th, two shy of Leyton Orient in seventh.
Elsewhere, Barnet host a Hartlepool side that are just two points above the bottom-two, Cambridge welcome Exeter to the Abbey Stadium in a mid-table clash, Morecambe, who have lost five in a row, travel to Crawley, Kevin Nolan’s Leyton Orient host Luton, lowly Newport welcome promotion-chasing Wycombe to Wales and sixth-placed Bristol Rovers make the trip north to Notts County.
