Sky Bet League 1: Matchday 37 Preview

18 March 2016

The battle for promotion continues on Matchday 37 with a full schedule of games taking place in Sky Bet League 1.

League leaders Burton Albion travel to Port Vale, who have the best home record in the division - losing just once in 18 outings.

Wigan Athletic will hope to close the gap at the top by beating Bradford City, who themselves require a point to remain in the top six.

Here's a list of the Sky Bet League 1 fixtures taking place on Matchday 37 (all kick-offs are 3pm):

Bury v Shrewsbury Town
Coventry City v Swindon Town
Crewe Alexandra v Blackpool
Doncaster Rovers v Peterborough United
Fleetwood Town v Barnsley
Millwall v Sheffield United
Oldham Athletic v Rochdale
Port Vale v Burton Albion
Scunthorpe United v Chesterfield
Southend United v Gillingham
Walsall v Colchester United
Wigan Athletic v Bradford City

At the bottom of the table, two sides in the relegation zone clash at the Alexandra Stadium as Crewe take on Blackpool.

The Railwaymen will go to within two points of their opponents with victory, which would provide a boost to their chances of avoiding the drop.

Walsall, who climbed to third following their midweek win over Fleetwood Town, entertain bottom club Colchester United, while Gillingham make the short trip to Essex to play Southend United.

Millwall will still believe they can gatecrash the automatic promotion places if they can overcome Sheffield United at the Den. The Blades lie 11th and are six points shy of a Play-Off position.

Doncaster Rovers, only outside the bottom four on goal difference, play Peterborough United at the Keepmoat Stadium, who are looking for their first league win since January 2nd.

Elsewhere, Bury play Shrewsbury Town, Coventry City take on Swindon Town at the Ricoh Arena, Fleetwood Town face Barnsley and Oldham Athletic lock horns with Rochdale.
