On Saturday lunchtime, there's a crucial Sky Bet Championship clash live on Sky Sports with second-placed Queens Park Rangers hosting Burnley, in third.
Since losing two successive games either side of Christmas, Harry Redknapp's Londoners have recovered with five unbeaten matches, winning their past four and picking up 13 points.
Burnley are also undefeated in five and have registered 11 points in that time. As a result, the R's are now three points clear of the Clarets.
These two teams have the best defensive records in the division with 17 and 20 goals conceded respectively, both from 27 games.
In midweek, the Johnstone's Paint Trophy returns with the Area Finals, with four teams competing for the chance to play at Wembley in March.
Wednesday sees the Southern Section Final first leg at London Road, and the Sky Sports cameras will be present to capture the action between Peterborough United and Swindon Town.
This will be their third meeting this season after a couple of Sky Bet League 1 encounters, with both teams having won their home league fixture, 1-0 to Posh and 2-1 to the Robins.
They are battling for the right to play either Fleetwood Town or Chesterfield, both from Sky Bet League 2, who contest the Northern Final.
