Elsewhere, Gillingham, whose unbeaten record came to an end last week, travel to Oakwell where they haven't tasted success since 1968, to face Barnsley – triumphant in their last five meetings against the Gills.

In-form Bury have won three in a row and are at home to Coventry, and can move level on points with the Sky Blues with victory.

Colchester have gone four games without loss and travel to Swindon, with no home side victorious in this fixture in the past seven meetings between the two clubs.
