League 1 matches tonight as rivals Oxford United play


SIX of Sky Bet League One’s top ten will be looking to take advantage of the games in progress tonight.

Oxford United aren’t in action and will almost certainly remain fourth in the table, but some of the teams below them can close the gap.

The biggest game of the evening takes place at Home Park where sixth-placed Plymouth Argyle host tenth-placed Portsmouth.

The Pilgrims would move level on points with United if they win, but only a six-goal triumph would put them fourth on goal difference.

Surely Pompey needs at least a draw to keep his promotion hopes alive – Danny Cowley’s men have ten games left to play, but they are seven points behind Argyle.

Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday and Wycombe Wanderers will expect to take advantage if Plymouth slip.

The Owls are seventh, one point from the play-off spots, and host Accrington Stanley, 12th.

Wycombe are two points behind and host relegation-threatened Fleetwood Town at Adams Park.

Elsewhere, the top two in League One have the option of boosting their automatic promotion bid.

Leaders Rotherham United are four points clear of third-placed MK Dons ahead of their home game against Michael Appleton’s Lincoln City tonight.

Wigan Athletic are only ahead of MK on goal difference, despite having played three fewer games. They visit the basement boys Crewe Alexandra.

The other two matches see Charlton Athletic face Gillingham at The Valley and Morecambe, hosts Shrewsbury Town.
