Sky Bet League 1: Matchday 46 preview

6 May 2016

There's still plenty to play for as the curtain comes down on the 2015/16 Sky Bet League 1 campaign.

Automatic promotion, Play-Off places and the battle to beat the drop are still to be decided, while Wigan Athletic can get their hands on the title.

Here are Sunday's Sky Bet League 1 fixtures, which all get under way at 12:30pm:

Sunday 8th May 2016

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

The Sky Sports cameras are at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday for Doncaster Rovers versus Burton Albion, a match which could have implications at both ends of the table.

Rovers are all but down due to their inferior goal difference, but need victory to give themselves even the tiniest bit of hope. Standing in their way are Nigel Clough's Brewers, who need a point to clinch promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.

Walsall are the only team that can prevent Burton's climb – they go to Port Vale – while table-toppers Wigan host Barnsley.

The aforementioned Tykes are one of three teams bidding for sixth spot and that final Play-Off place. The other two are Scunthorpe United, who visit Sheffield United, and Gillingham, who host Millwall.

The two Fylde coast clubs are both bidding for survival, with Fleetwood Town hosting relegated Crewe Alexandra and rivals Blackpool making the trip to Peterborough United.

Bradford City's final warm-up for the Play-Offs comes at home to Chesterfield, while Colchester United bow out of League 1 in front of their own fans against Rochdale.

Elsewhere, Bury take on Southend United, Swindon Town meet Shrewsbury Town and Coventry City make the trip to Oldham Athletic.
