Wigan Athletic are running away with the League One title with the Lancashire side enjoying a five-point lead at the top of the table, however with the Latics involved in FA Cup action on Saturday afternoon, the chance is there for the chasing pack to narrow the gap with Blackburn Rovers and Shrewsbury Town eager to take advantage of Wigan’s absence from the league fixtures.
Blackburn and Shrewsbury are locked on 55 points apiece as we approach the final third of the campaign and they will both be desperate to steal a march on each other when they lock horns with Northampton Town and Portsmouth respectively.
Scunthorpe United sit four points adrift of the top-three and they will be aiming to narrow this gap when they go head-to-head with struggling Southend United at Roots Hall while fifth-placed Bradford City will be looking to bounce back from their poor recent run and climb back into the automatic promotion mix when they face AFC Wimbledon at Valley Parade.
Towards the opposite end of the table, Oldham Athletic will be desperate to distance themselves from the bottom three when they entertain Plymouth Argyle while in the middle of the League One table, Gillingham are in for a tough clash when they face Fleetwood Town and Doncaster Rovers look set to be involved in a closely-fought match when they welcome Bristol Rovers to the Keepmoat Stadium.
Who will be the winners and losers in League One this weekend? Here’s what we think…
