Bradford v Watford
Bradford, who were last week placed into administration for the second time in as many years, have now lost six of their last seven games following their 2-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
Keeper Nico Vaesen is struggling with a dead leg and with Alan Combe serving a five-match suspension, Clint Davies is standing by for the first start of his career.
Watford, who have won their last three games without conceding a goal to move six points clear of danger, welcome back Heidar Helguson after his three-match ban.
Hameur Bouazza is still troubled by an ankle injury and Marcus Gayle is out with a hamstring tear, so manager Ray Lewington may name an unchanged team.
Burnley v West Ham
Burnley boss Stan Ternent has a depleted squad for the visit of West Ham after Paul Rachubka and Bradley Orr were recalled from their loan spells at Turf Moor.
Midfielder Richard Chaplow is an injury doubt, while Paul Weller is suspended following his red card in the FA Cup defeat at Millwall.
West Ham boss Alan Pardew has named an unchanged squad for the trip to Lancashire following Saturday's well deserved victory over Cardiff.
The Hammers are unbeaten in their last 11 away games in Division One, although they have drawn eight of those games.
Cardiff v Coventry
Cardiff's slim play-off hopes have been dented by a run of only three wins in 11 games, including defeats at West Brom and West Ham in the last fortnight.
Defender Rhys Weston suffered a knee injury in Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Upton Park and he is set to be replaced by Gary Croft, while striker Peter Thorne is still missing with a foot injury.
Coventry have won their last three away games, scoring 10 goals, and they are now level on points with Cardiff in mid-table.
Manager Eric Black will pick from the same players on duty for Saturday's 2-0 win over Derby at Highfield Road.
Gillingham v Wigan
Gillingham have been badly affected by injuries, with defenders Chris Hope, Ian Cox and John Hills all sidelined, and they have lost five of their last seven games.
Striker Rod Wallace is also ruled out for the Gills, who have scored only three goals in eight games and none in the last four.
Wigan are unbeaten in six away games, winning three, and they are now within three points of second place West Brom.
Manager Paul Jewell is unlikely to make any changes from Saturday's 1-0 win over Walsall, with Andy Liddell starting on the right of midfield in place of the injured Gary Teale.
Norwich v West Brom
Leaders Norwich entertain second place West Brom in front of the Sky cameras, with City looking to build on their three point advantage at the top.
Norwich have lost only twice at Carrow Road this season, but Albion have the best away record in the First Division, with eight victories on their travels.
Canaries boss Nigel Worthington is likely to name an unchanged side for the fifth successive match, with only Zema Abbey and Mark Rivers ruled out by injury.
West Brom could be without Darren Moore, who suffered a minor groin strain in Saturday's surprise defeat to Rotherham at the Hawthorns.
Moore is Gary Megson's only injury concern for the trip to Norfolk and Albion could be unchanged if the big defender passes a fitness test.
Preston v Reading
Preston have slumped to 13th place after a run of four defeats in five league games, a run in which they have lost to promotion rivals Wigan, Millwall and Ipswich.
Paul McKenna, Tyrone Mears and Claude Davis all face fitness tests after picking up injuries during Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Portman Road.
Reading are right back in the promotion hunt after winning four of their last six games, and Shaun Goater has made up for the continued absence of top scorer Nicky Forster with seven goals in nine matches.
Defender Graeme Murty could miss out because of a knee injury, while Steve Brown is not yet ready to return after his knee problems.
Rotherham v Crystal Palace
Rotherham have taken seven points from four games following their 1-0 win at second place West Brom at the weekend.
Striker Martin Butler is a slight doubt due to illness, while skipper Martin McIntosh, who has been out since December with an ankle injury, could require a knee reconstruction which would keep him out for the rest of the year.
Palace boss Iain Dowie is set to name an unchanged side after the 1-0 win over Gillingham on Saturday.
The Eagles have won six of the last seven games to move to within two points of the play-off places.
Sheffield United v Millwall
Sheffield United's promotion push has stalled after a run of five defeats in six games, and they are now out of the play-off places.
Andy Gray will make his home debut after scoring at Reading on Saturday, while Jack Lester is back in contention after overcoming a knee injury.
Teenager Jonathan Forte is doubtful because of an ankle injury while Stuart McCall has a back strain.
Millwall welcome back striker Danny Dichio after he missed Saturday's 2-0 win over Burnley through suspension.
The Lions have won seven of their last eight matches to earn manager Dennis Wise the manager of the month award.
Stoke v Ipswich
Stoke welcome back defender Gerry Taggart after he returned to the club from Leicester on a permanent basis.
John Eustace is doubtful because of a back injury while Gifton Noel-Williams, Clive Clarke and Lewis Neal face fitness tests.
Shefki Kuqi will return for Ipswich after missing the 2-0 victory over Preston at the weekend through suspension.
The Finnish striker is expected to take the place of Pablo Counago, who was substituted early in the second half on Saturday.
Midfielder Chris Bart-Williams has been ruled out as he is set to undergo a scan on his longstanding back injury.
Walsall v Sunderland
Walsall are without a win in nine games and approach the visit of Sunderland with a number of injury concerns.
Matt Carbon has a hip injury, while Darren Wrack, Vinny Samways and Simon Osborn all face fitness tests.
Gary Breen and Jason McAteer could feature for Sunderland, having been given extra time to recover from injuries by the postponement of Saturday's game with Norwich.
Winger Matt Piper is in the squad for the first time since August, although he will not start and is lacking match practice.
Wimbledon v Nottingham Forest
Warren Barton has returned to Wimbledon as player-coach and could make his home debut, but another Dons veteran, Dean Holdsworth, is ruled out by injury.
Wade Small is also ruled out by a toe injury, but Mark Williams returns after serving a suspension.
Forest keeper Darren Ward has recovered from a back injury and could take over from Barry Roche in goal.
Forest are unbeaten in their four matches under new manager Joe Kinnear and won for the first time in 18 games when they beat Bradford 2-1 on Saturday.
Preview: Luton v Bournemouth
Luton pair Matthew Spring and Kevin Foley are both still absent with injuries ahead of the match against Bournemouth.
Spring (groin) and Foley (leg) have both been ordered to rest and will play no part at Kenilworth Road.
Striker Adrian Forbes will be sidelined for a further month after undergoing an operation to correct knee ligament damage. Russell Perrett (calf), Ian Hillier and Dean Crowe (both hamstring) are also out, but Lee Mansell is back after a leg injury.
On-loan Gareth Williams is set to miss the trip for Bournemouth. The Crystal Palace striker has only managed one substitute appearance for the Cherries so far and has been ruled out once again with a back injury.
James Hayter should continue in attack following his three-goal cameo against Wrexham and his matchwinner on Saturday to see off Oldham.
Defender Karl Broadhurst has now regained full fitness after suffering concussion against Notts County and is back in contention.
Preview: Oldham v Wrexham
Oldham are poised to snap up Everton midfielder Steven Schumacher on loan - although the deal will not be completed in time for him to face Wrexham.
The England youth international has recently impressed on trial at Boundary Park, and Everton boss David Moyes has agreed to release the player for a month's loan.
However, the Latics will definitely be without Jermaine Johnson after the loan striker returned to Bolton.
Dennis Lawrence and Darren Ferguson are set to return from suspension to boost Denis Smith's Wrexham side ahead of the trip.
The pair served one-game bans during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Rushden & Diamonds and can expect to go straight back into the side in place of Shaun Pejic and Matt Crowell.
Paul Edwards and Brian Carey were both carrying knocks before the Rushden clash but came through unscathed and will continue.
Preview: Rushden & Diamonds v Blackpool
Rushden boss Brian Talbot is sweating on the fitness of three key players ahead of his side's clash with Blackpool.
David Bell should be available after missing Saturday's clash against Wrexham with a hamstring injury.
Andy Burgess was also absent with a calf strain, although that has improved with rest, but striker Onandi Lowe is doubtful with a groin injury.
Blackpool's leading scorer Scott Taylor is doubtful for the trip with a foot injury. Although the problem is not thought to be serious, boss Steve McMahon may decide to err on the side of caution with this month's LDV Vans Trophy final in mind.
Tony Dinning should be fit despite carrying a slight shoulder injury, while defender Leam Richardson (hamstring) and goalkeeper Lee Jones (hip) are doubtful. If Jones is unavailable, Phil Barnes will continue between the posts.
Long-term absentees Tommy Jaszczun, Kirk Hilton, Chris Clarke and Steve Davis are all still short of fitness
Preview: Hartlepool v Chesterfield
Michael Nelson will challenge for a place in the Hartlepool side to face Chesterfield after serving a one-game suspension.
Boss Neale Cooper must decide whether he should stick with Scott Walker.
Gavin Strachan has made good progress with his knee injury and may be included in the squad, but Paul Robinson (hamstring) is definitely out.
Chesterfield manager Roy McFarland will be without loan signing Jamie McMaster for the trip.
He has returned to employers Leeds for treatment on an ankle injury he sustained at Swindon last month.
However, the 21-year-old is likely to be fit in time for the home game against Sheffield Wednesday.
The Spireites welcome back Kevin Dawson from a one-match ban, while Steve Payne has recovered from flu and should also be named in manager Roy McFarland's squad.
Preview: QPR v Port Vale
QPR duo Clarke Carlisle and Matthew Rose are both back in contention for the clash with Port Vale after being given extra time to rest their injuries.
Carlisle (ankle) and Rose (back) were both doubftul for the weekend's match against Tranmere. But the defensive pair had extra time to recover when the match was postponed due to a frozen pitch.
Goalkeeper Chris Day is missing after undergoing surgery on his shin, so Nick Culkin gets the nod between the sticks.
Richard Johnson is fit after spraining an ankle, while Martin Rowlands is also fit after a hamstring injury.
Port Vale boss Martin Foyle is unlikely to make any changes to his side for the clash.
Steve Brooker was a doubt before Saturday's postponed game with Swindon, but should remain in the starting line-up after gaining more time to recover from a groin strain.
Michael Walsh may return to the bench after a four-month absence with a back injury. And Walsh should be joined on the bench by Austrian defender Andreas Lipa, who has been out for a month with a hamstring injury.
Preview: Colchester v Stockport
Colchester manager Phil Parkinson will be without suspended Craig Fagan for the clash with Stockport.
Fagan starts a two-match ban after receiving 10 yellow cards this season.
Otherwise Parkinson has no further suspension or injury worries to contend with.
Stockport boss Sammy McIlroy has no new injury or suspension worries.
Jim Goodwin has recovered from a knee injury and will make the squad, while Rob Clare returned from an ankle knock against Brighton.
The only player unavailable to McIlroy will be long-term injured Luke Beckett.
Preview: Barnsley v Peterborough
Barnsley defender Garry Monk will miss the home clash with Peterborough after damaging ankle ligaments against Grimsby on Saturday.
Monk may have played his last game this season after being replaced inside the first 20 minutes of the 6-1 thrashing at Blundell Park.
Dean Gorre will also miss out as he continues to struggle with a knee injury, but he could return for the home clash with Luton at the weekend.
Michael Boulding could return to the starting line-up after recovering from the illness which restricted him to a substitute's role against Grimsby.
The fitness of skipper Curtis Woodhouse is a major concern for Peterborough boss Barry Fry ahead of the trip. The former Birmingham midfielder is struggling with a hamstring injury.
Clive Platt, another hamstring victim, and Steve Jenkins (knee) are still to regain full fitness.
Calum Willock is likely to remain in the forward line after coming into the side on Saturday and scoring in the 2-1 defeat by Luton.
Gareth Jelleyman should be out for another four to five weeks with an ankle ligament injury.
Preview: Plymouth v Sheff Wed
Plymouth will wait on late fitness tests on strikers Nathan Lowndes and Mickey Evans ahead of their home game against Sheffield Wednesday.
Lowndes and Evans both took knocks in the 1-0 win at Blackpool, where substitute forward Ian Stonebridge scored the winner.
Argyle boss Paul Sturrock has a number of options in attack with Marino Keith, Stonebridge and Blair Sturrock all pushing for a place.
Goalkeeper Ola Tidman could return for the Owls after missing the 1-0 win over Bristol City with concussion.
Tidman was injured during the LDV Vans Trophy defeat to Blackpool last week but his condition has improved and he will be given every chance to prove his fitness.
If the Swede is unavailable for the tough trip, Kevin Pressman will continue in goal.
Adam Proudlock will be out for a fortnight with a groin injury, while defender Derek Geary returns from suspension.
Danish striker Kim Olsen has severe bruising to his leg and is unlikely to feature.
Preview: Brighton v Brentford
Leon Knight returns for Brighton against Brentford.
The striker has served his one-match ban and should go straight into the starting line-up.
John Piercy is fully fit after recovering from an ankle injury.
Brentford midfielder Matt Somner is back in contention after serving a one-match ban.
Somner could come straight back into the starting line-up.
Stephen Hunt is ruled out with a groin injury, with Joel Kitamirike and Kevin O'Connor likely to be on the bench again after being dropped.
Preview: Bristol City v Wycombe
Bristol City boss Danny Wilson must reshuffle his defence for the visit of Wycombe.
Tony Butler is out serving a one-match ban, while Matthew Hill is winning his fitness fight after receiving a knock on his calf.
Craig Woodman is a likely starter, with Mickey Bell or Clayton Fortune ready to step in if Hill is ruled out.
Wycombe manager Tony Adams will stick with Steve Williams until he can find a replacement for Frank Talia.
Talia is out for at least six weeks with a training-ground injury, so Williams will be in net against the Robins.
But there will be no back-up on the bench with youngster Tom Gott also sidelined by a knee injury.
Roger Johnson returns from suspension, but Mark Rogers (hamstring), Keith Ryan (ankle), Scott Marshall (hamstring) and Andy Thomson (knee) are all ruled out.
Preview: Notts County v Grimsby
Notts County should be boosted by the return of Stefan Oakes for the crunch relegation clash with Grimsby.
The former Leicester man was forced to sit out Saturday's win over Brentford through illness.
Simon Baldry made his return against the Bees after a month on the sidelines with a thigh injury and should keep his place after suffering no reaction.
Grimsby caretaker boss Graham Rodger is likely to name an unchanged starting line-up.
Simon Ford and Stacy Coldicott sustained knocks in the 6-1 victory over Barnsley on Saturday but should travel.
However, Aidan Davison serves the second game of a three-match suspension following his sending-off against Brighton, so Andy Pettinger will deputise.
Jason Crowe is on the comeback trail from a hamstring injury and could also be named in Rodger's 16-man squad
Preview: Rochdale v Doncaster
Pat McCourt could return to the Rochdale squad for the home clash with Doncaster.
He has not played since the 3-1 defeat against Northampton last month following a calf injury, but his condition has improved.
Fellow midfielder Chris Beech - sidelined since early January with a similar injury - is still several weeks away from a return.
Doncaster boss Dave Penney will be without in-form striker Gregg Blundell for the trip through suspension.
Blundell has hit five goals in his last three games and Penney will probably promote Chris Brown from the bench to take over goalscoring duties.
Otherwise Penney will field an unchanged side.
Jamie Price serves the last game of his three-match suspension and John Doolan (knee), Simon Marples (hernia) and Fran Tierney (knee) are all in need of match fitness.
Preview: Huddersfield v Yeovil
Huddersfield manager Peter Jackson will be without suspended midfielder Tony Carss for the visit of Yeovil.
Saturday's postponed clash with Carlisle has given Nat Brown more time to recover from the groin injury he suffered against Lincoln, but his participation remains in doubt.
Lee Fowler is unlikely to be risked after picking up an ankle injury while playing for the reserves last week.
Yeovil manager Gary Johnson can welcome back Paul Terry for the trip.
Terry was on paternity leave for the 4-1 win over Cambridge, but returns to bolster the Glovers squad.
Colin Pluck and skipper Terry Skiverton suffered no reaction to their knee injuries after returning to the side on Saturday.
Nick Crittenden (hamstring) is ruled out, along with injured striker Jake Edwards (groin).
Adam Stansfield is set to keep his place after marking his return to the starting line-up with a goal against Cambridge
Preview: Mansfield v Torquay
Mansfield have signed Laurent D'Jaffo until the end of the season and he goes straight into the side to face Torquay.
The striker has been snapped up by the Stags after being released by Aberdeen.
Mansfield also welcome back Tom Curtis after his recovery from knee surgery.
Torquay are boosted by the return to fitness of Jo Kuffour ahead of the clash.
Kuffour has recovered from a hamstring injury.
Jason Fowler (shoulder) will undergo a fitness test
Preview: Kidderminster v Northampton
Kidderminster skipper Wayne Hatswell is set to miss the home clash with Northampton after suffering with concussion against Doncaster last Friday.
The midfielder was taken off after a first-half clash of heads with a Rovers striker. Although he was given the all-clear after hospital tests, it seems unlikely that Harriers boss Jan Molby will risk him against the Cobblers.
Matthew Gadsby is also rated as doubtful after picking up a stomach strain in the 5-0 mauling at Doncaster, but Craig Hinton is set to return after serving a one-match ban.
Northampton manager Colin Calderwoood will be boosted by the return of midfielder Chris Hargreaves from suspension for the trip.
Greg Lincoln is fully-fit again and Marc Richards has recovered from the calf strain that forced him to be substituted in Saturday's 1-0 win over Leyton Orient.
Josh Law is hoping to make the starting line-up after coming off the bench to score the decisive goal against the Londoners.
However, midfielder Martin Reeves is a major doubt with a hamstring strain, while Ashley Westwood is still some way off returning from a similar injury.
Preview: Scunthorpe v Carlisle
Scunthorpe manager Brian Laws is likely to include new signings Darren Holloway and Paul Groves for the visit of Carlisle.
Peter Beagrie is nursing a calf injury and will miss out.
Ian Kilford (hamstring) and Lee Featherstone (dead leg) are also unavailable, while Andy Butler and Matt Sparrow are both suspended.
Carlisle player-manager Paul Simpson should be able to give new loan signing Kelvin Langmead a run-out following his move from Preston.
Paul Arnison serves a one-match suspension, while Paul Raven is doubtful after picking up a calf injury.
Kevin Henderson and Michael Reed are out recovering from their respective ankle and groin injuries.
Preview: Darlington v Cheltenham
Darlington manager David Hodgson will be without midfielder Ian Clark for the home clash with Cheltenham.
Clark serves a one-match suspension for his sending-off against Northampton last month.
Clark Keltie is expected to replace him after recovering from an ankle injury in time to make the bench against Bury at the weekend. Defender Gary Pearson has also recovered from an ankle knock.
Cheltenham are likely to be unchanged for the trip after the convincing win over Mansfield.
Midfielder Richard Forsyth should be on the bench again along with Kayode Odejayi, despite the striker's late goal on Saturday.
Bob Taylor (rib) and Shane Duff (knee) are closer to action but not quite ready for a recall to the squad.
Preview: Cambridge v Swansea
Manager John Taylor is sweating on the fitness of loan signing Jermaine Easter ahead of the home game against Swansea.
Taylor has no other new injury or suspension concerns.
Swansea director of football Brian Flynn will welcome back Kristian O'Leary and James Thomas for the trip.
The pair missed Swansea's win against against Leyton Orient last week with calf and shin injuries respectively, but have recovered sufficiently to be named in the squad.
Flynn has no suspension worries but will be missing Lee Trundle, who picked up a hamstring injury against Orient.
Lenny Johnrose (calf), Karl Connolly and Kieron Durkan (both thigh) are all ruled out.
Preview: Macclesfield v Lincoln
Macclesfield boss John Askey is unlikely to recall midfielder Chris Priest (ankle) to his squad for the clash against Lincoln.
Priest has been sidelined for the past two weeks, but has returned to training and should make his return against Darlington on Saturday.
Forward Neil Ross is back in light training following ligament damage to his foot.
Lincoln boss Keith Alexander is sweating on the fitness of defender Mark Bailey for the game.
Bailey sustained a calf strain in the superb 2-0 victory over Hull on Saturday and is rated "doubtful" by Alexander to make the starting XI.
However, the Imps welcome back striker Simon Yeo for the trip to Moss Rose. Yeo missed the Tigers game after serving a one-game suspension for being shown the yellow card five times this season.
Preview: Leyton Orient v Bristol Rovers
Leyton Orient boss Martin Ling is unlikely to make changes for the clash with Bristol Rovers despite losing to 10-man Northampton at the weekend.
Ling brought in Tom Newey and Lloyd Sam for Justin Miller and Jabo Ibehre, and is set to stick with the same team.
Matt Lockwood is still out while he recovers from a broken toe, while Dave McGhee has yet to return from an ankle injury.
Greg Heald, Simon Downer and Matthew Joseph are all available and back to full fitness following long lay-offs.
Bristol Rovers caretaker boss Phil Bater will be without defender Christian Edwards for the clash.
Edwards is sidelined with a knee injury, but Paul Tait and Lee Matthews will both be included in the squad for the match at Brisbane Road.
Tait (knee) and Matthews (ankle) have both recently returned from injury, but showed no adverse reactions making their comebacks in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Oxford.
Sonny Parker could make his return following a calf injury.(Ananova, Sky-sport)
