There is a full fixture list in League Two on Tuesday night as the automatic promotion race intensifies with only four games remaining of the season, with just two points separating the teams sitting second to fifth in the standings.

Still in pole position to join already crowned champions Northampton Town in League One next term are Oxford United, who travel to Wales to take on a relegation threatened Newport County side who have lost their last six league outings on the bounce.

In third spot; just one point adrift of the runners-up, Bristol Rovers will be hoping to strengthen their top three ambitions with all three points at Stevenage, meanwhile fourth-placed Accrington Stanley, who are on the same amount of points as the Pirates (75) will be waiting in the wings if either side above them slip-up, especially if they can fend off mid-table outfit Hartlepool United this evening.

Then there is Plymouth Argyle in fifth spot; the Pilgrims travel to Leyton Orient on Tuesday, with the O’s still hopeful of gatecrashing the play-off party after Saturday’s 3-2 win over Dagenham and Redbridge moved them within two points of the top seven.

Meanwhile at the very bottom of the standings; the already relegated Daggers welcome AFC Wimbledon to Victoria Road, plus second-bottom York City face a must-win encounter against promotion chasing Portsmouth at Bootham Crescent.

Any result other result than a win for the Minstermen, who currently lie 11 points adrift of League Two survival with only 12 points on offer for the remainder of the campaign, will mean Jackie McNamara’s men will joined Dagenham in non-league football next term.

However; if Newport upset Oxford at Rodney Parade, York will be ultimately be condemned to the Conference anyway.

The other fixtures on Tuesday night sees League Two champions Northampton welcome Crawley Town to Sixfields, with Chris Wilder’s hosts coming off the back of four consecuitve draws.

Cambridge United, who are five points behind the top seven pace with only four fixtures left, will resume their faint play-off push when they entertain Morecambe, plus Barnet and Notts County go head-to-head, although both outfits hover in mid-table obscurity come the end of the season.

Carlisle United will need another set of three points at home to Luton Town at Brunton Park to have any chance of reaching the play-offs come May, on the other hand Exeter City could lift themselves into the top seven should they defeat Mansfield Town at St James Park tonight, and other results go their way.

And finally; Wycombe Wanderers who have stumbled to back-to-back draws to fall two points short of the play-off pace, will be determined to get back to winning ways against 20th placed Yeovil Town at Adams Park.
