The Easter holiday brings joy to many, but these are the Football League Clubs who could see their fates determined prior to the Easter Weekend.

Sky Bet Championship

Rotherham United had their return to Sky Bet League One confirmed on the first day of April with a 1-0 loss against Fulham.

Sky Bet League One

Coventry City’s win over Peterborough United last weekend made sure that they could still fight for safety, however, the Sky Blues require maximum points again to avoid relegation.

Charlton Athletic make the trip to the Ricoh Arena. Should Coventry win, they could still go down if Bury (18th), Shrewsbury (19th) and Gillingham (20th) all win.

Chesterfield could also find themselves relegated this weekend. If they lose Southend United they won’t be guaranteed relegation. But if they win or draw then a win for Oldham – who host Bolton Wanderers – and the previously mentioned trio must all win to send the Spireites down.

Bolton Wanderers could secure their return to the top flight of the Football League should they beat Oldham, but will need Good Friday losses for Fleetwood Town and Bradford City, whilst Scunthorpe United would need to drop points at MK Dons.

The Trotters’ result could also determine who is crowned Champions of League One. Bolton must equal Sheffield United’s result in order to continue the race to see who finishes atop the pile.

Sky Bet League Two

Plymouth Argyle could become the second side to be promoted from League Two should they win at Portsmouth on Good Friday.

If Argyle manage to pick up a point, then they would need Luton Town to lose, and hope Stevenage fail to beat Morecambe. Derek Adams’ side can gain promotion with a win at Portsmouth and Luton drop points against Leyton Orient.

Orient’s time in the Football League could be brought to an end if they lose at Luton. If Cheltenham Town and Hartlepool both win then the O’s will be relegated with a defeat, however, a point would preserve their status.
