There are three games taking place tonight in Sky Bet League One, with all three having ramifications at both the top and bottom of the table.

We take a quick look at the three games being played tonight:

Portsmouth Vs Southend United:

Last season, Portsmouth reached the Sky Bet League One Play-Offs, but this season their form has been nowhere near good enough. The South Coast club currently find themselves 15th in the league, just five points off the relegation zone. They’re fairing better than their opponents tonight however. Only Bolton Wanderers are currently below Southend United, but if it wasn’t for the points deduction, Southend would be rock bottom. Sol Campbell has struggled to turn around their fortunes since joining the club, but they have played big clubs such as Ipswich Town and Sunderland. Southend are eight points adrift of safety, and they need to start picking up points soon before they find themselves in even deeper trouble.

Rochdale Vs Ipswich Town:

Ipswich Town make the long trip to the North West tonight looking for the three points that will take them back to the top of the Sky Bet League One table. Despite not playing at the weekend, they remained in the top two thanks to Peterborough United’s defeat, but surrendered top spot to Wycombe Wanderers. The Tractor Boys have lost just two games all season, but Rochdale is a difficult place to go. Dale currently find themselves 14th in the table, but have lost their last two games, including a home defeat against Bristol Rovers at the weekend.

Shrewsbury Town Vs Peterborough United:

It’s the top scorers in the league against the team that barely seem to score this evening as Peterborough United travel to Shrewsbury Town. Posh are looking to bounce back from a 4-3 defeat at Blackpool at the weekend, and will be hoping to keep track with the teams at the top of the league after they missed their chance to move into the automatic places. Shrewsbury Town were beaten by new league leaders Wycombe Wanderers at the weekend 1-0. The hosts have not scored more than one goal in a league game since September 17, while Posh have scored two or more in their last seven league games.
