The Sky Bet League One division continues to head towards its conclusion on Tuesday evening when three more matches are played out. It might be a reduced set of fixtures but it is one of the most important nights of the season so far.
Both ends of the table are in the spotlight on Tuesday evening as sides look to enhance their position at the top end of it and a couple of others will look to pull themselves away from danger at the bottom of it.
Accrington Stanley vs Rochdale
The big battle at the bottom of the table comes from the Wham Stadium where Accrington Stanley look to ease their relegation concerns against their fellow Lancastrians, Rochdale, who can climb out of the bottom four with a win of their own.
Accrington picked up a big point at Wimbledon on Saturday to keep their heads above water but if they were to be beaten here they would have a right scrap on their hands with three of the top six still to play in their last five matches. Rochdale gave Sunderland a good battle on Saturday but ultimately went down late on and need to pick themselves up for this one. I wouldn’t like to call this one. The stakes are too high. I’m on Accrington to go down so I hope Rochdale have a win in them but I won’t bet on the game.
Sunderland vs Burton Albion
The Stadium of Light should be rocking on Tuesday evening when Sunderland look to get back in the top two in the table when they take on a Burton Albion side who shouldn’t have given up hope on making the play-offs just yet.
Sunderland are huge favourites for this match as you would expect but Burton have just touched off Barnsley to highlight that they might not be pushovers here. This was a Championship fixture last year of course and it could be that Sunderland head back there but they never win convincingly enough for my liking and with the amount of matches they have had in recent times they are easy to leave alone. I’m leaving the match alone as it goes.
Wycombe Wanderers vs Charlton Athletic
Both ends of the table are in the spotlight at Adams Park where a Wycombe Wanderers side who are dropping like a brick take on Charlton Athletic who are still surging in the hope of getting themselves in the automatic promotion chase which looks like going right down to the wire.
Wycombe’s defeat to Portsmouth on Saturday means that they have now picked up just three points from their last 33 available and they are going down without a trace unless something big happens. Charlton are going completely the other way. They have just one defeat in their last 15 matches and have only conceded eight times in that spell so they are getting it done at both ends of the pitch.
The Addicks have won four of their last five and haven’t conceded in their last three so odds against on them is actually big here. There is a concern that they had plenty of travelling to do on Saturday but this one isn’t too bad and they are at home on Saturday, albeit to leaders Luton. That should motivate them to ensure they win this and with the draw cover available I like Lee Bowyer’s side here.
