Accrington Stanley v Morecambe

There's a battle between two Lancashire rivals in Sky Bet League 2 this weekend, with Morecambe travelling to Accrington Stanley.

The hosts have 14 victories against Morecambe in the head-to-head record, compared to the Shrimps' three, with the other four meetings ending level.

Stanley are 17th, while Morecambe are 10th, but the former are on a better run of form with one defeat in seven. Jim Bentley's men have only managed one win over the same number of matches, with their most recent three ending level.

Burton Albion v Exeter City

Burton Albion occupy the lowest Play-Off place and take on mid-table Exeter City.

The Brewers' 10-match unbeaten run came to an end last time out when they went down 4-2 against Fleetwood Town, but they are in the Play-Offs by eight points.

Exeter have slid down the table to 15th after five defeats in seven. They've lost the last two meetings against Burton, including in the reverse fixture this season.

Bury v Wycombe Wanderers

Wycombe Wanderers' poor Sky Bet League 2 form continued in midweek and their next assignment is an away match at Bury.

Gareth Ainsworth's men have only won once since October - a run of 14 league games - and were defeated 1-0 at home by Portsmouth on Tuesday night. That form has seen them fall to 21st and only three points above the bottom two.

Bury are the team separating Wycombe from the relegation zone but they've lost just once in five, winning two and drawing the other two. They haven't had a match since 18th January when they held high-flying Burton 0-0.

Cheltenham Town v Northampton Town

Chris Wilder's first match as Northampton Town manager sees him take the Cobblers to Cheltenham Town.

Northampton prop up the table with 22 points from their 26 games, and they've lost their most recent two. They posses the division's second-worst away record but won 1-0 at Cheltenham in last season's Play-Off Semi-Final.

The Robins are 13th and winless in four. They ended a run of three successive defeats with a 1-1 draw with Plymouth last weekend. They've only won three times on home soil so far.

Chesterfield v Bristol Rovers

Chesterfield are the new leaders of Sky Bet League 2 and entertain Bristol Rovers.

The Spireites took advantage of Scunthorpe United's midweek draw with Fleetwood Town by beating York City 2-0 to take over at the summit of the division. They've lost only once in nine.

Rovers lost 1-0 to Accrington in midweek, a result that came after two wins and a draw. They are only four points above the bottom two but have won 19 times against Chesterfield in years gone by, whereas the Spireites have triumphed just seven times in this fixture.

Fleetwood Town v York City

Fleetwood Town and York City clash at Highbury.

That midweek 0-0 draw for the Cod Army against Scunthorpe was enough for them to go third, and it came after four victories on the spin. Although they failed to score against the Iron, they have netted 44 goals this campaign - the joint-most in the division.

After previously going four unbeaten, York have suffered 2-0 defeats in their most recent two outings, against Hartlepool and Chesterfield. They have only two wins on the road so far.

Hartlepool United v Scunthorpe United

Hartlepool United and Scunthorpe United will meet for the 97th time when they clash in the North East.

The Iron were 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture and that was their 47th success against Pools, who have only won 29 encounters, with the other 20 ending level.

Scunthorpe are unbeaten in 12 but have drawn their last three, resulting in them slipping to second. Colin Cooper's Pools are 14th having suffered four defeats in five.

Oxford United v AFC Wimbledon

Oxford United have their first home game after the departure of Chris Wilder with AFC Wimbledon the visitors.

Wilder departed the Kassam Stadium to join Northampton and the U's drew 0-0 at Exeter in midweek to remain unbeaten on the road. They are fifth - one of three teams in the Play-Off places on 46 points.

AFC Wimbledon have won their most recent two and are one of three teams on the periphery of the Play-Offs on 38 points.

Plymouth Argyle v Mansfield Town

Plymouth Argyle and Mansfield Town come together at Home Park on Saturday/

While the 12th-placed Pilgrims drew 1-1 with Cheltenham last weekend, Mansfield, who are 19th, drew 2-2 with Wycombe.

Portsmouth v Torquay United

Chris Hargreaves' Torquay United travel to Fratton Park to take on Portsmouth for the third meeting between the sides this season.

The pair drew 0-0 in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, with Pompey winning the tie on penalties, and they drew 1-1 in the league fixture at Plainmoor in late October.

Portsmouth have climbed to 18th with four draws and a solitary victory coming in their last five outings, while the Gulls lie 23rd after suffering a defeat in their most recent match, following a draw and a victory in the two matches previous.

Rochdale v Dagenham and Redbridge

Fourth-placed Rochdale welcome the visit of out-of-form Dagenham and Redbridge.

While the Dale have lost once in seven, winning four of those, the 11th-placed Daggers have tasted victory on one occasion in nine.

Wayne Burnett's men have only notched two wins from 14 matches on the road so far. Rochdale have the best home record with 10 wins in 14, scoring 29 goals in that period.
