An intriguing season in League One is fast approaching its climax - and all the major issues could be decided this weekend.
At the top, Scunthorpe have already been promoted, and - six points clear of Bristol City and with a superior goal difference - have all but wrapped up the title.
A point at Blackpool on Saturday will make sure for Nigel Adkins' men, while City themselves will be celebrating promotion this weekend if they win at Millwall. But even if they draw, they will go up if Nottingham Forest don't win at Leyton Orient, while if both sides lose, City will still be celebrating.
Either City or Forest and Blackpool are already assured of play-off places and a win for Yeovil at home to Doncaster will mean they too are guaranteed a top-six finish.
Below them, though, Oldham, Swansea and Carlisle can all still break into the top six, with the Latics currently in the final play-off spot on goal difference from the Swans and the Cumbrians just a point behind the pair.
Mathematically, Tranmere can also still gatecrash the play-off party, but they will not only have to win both their games and the Latics and Swans lose both theirs, they will also have to make up a goal difference of 17, so Rovers fans can really start planning their holidays.
Rovers, Doncaster, Millwall, Crewe, the Gills, Port Vale, Northampton and Huddersfield are all just playing for positions, while Brighton are virtually safe, six points ahead of the drop zone and with a far superior goal difference to Bradford.
Leyton Orient and our Saturday opponents Bournemouth just need two points from their last two games to stay up, while one win for Cheltenham will be enough to see them stay in League One.
But it could all be irrelevant with Bradford and Chesterfield - who currently occupy the last two relegation places - meeting at Saltergate on Saturday.
The loser of that clash will be relegated, while a draw will see Chesterfield consigned to League Two - and if Cheltenham get a point at Rotherham, Bradford will also be down with a draw.
And, even if Chesterfield win, they can still go down as long as Cheltenham don't lose at Rotherham - who, along with Brentford - are already looking at a season in League Two in 2007/08.
