As we head into the final three weeks of the League Two regular season, there is still plenty to play for at both the top and bottom of the table.

U's can take advantage of Sutton position

WhatColchester United v Sutton United
WhereColchester Community Stadium
When15:00, Saturday, 22nd April
OddsColchester 5/4, Draw 23/10, Sutton 23/10

Colchester are seven points clear of the relegation zone with three games to play and they could seal their League Two place with a win over Sutton.

The hosts go into the clash unbeaten in their last five matches, with two wins and three draws easing their fears of a drop into the National League.

At this stage of the season, a home fixture against a team with nothing really to play for is ideal and that looks to be the case for Colchester on Saturday.

Sutton head to Essex having lost their last four and have collected just two wins in their last nine matches on the road.

It’s also worth noting that Noah Chilvers is a man in form, with two goals in the last three matches - including the winner at Salford City last weekend.

Hartlepool can secure crucial three points

WhatHartlepool United v Crawley Town
WhereVictoria Park
When15:00, Saturday, 22nd April
OddsHartlepool 6/5, Draw 12/5, Crawley 23/10

Arguably the biggest game of the weekend in League Two is at Victoria Park, as second-bottom Hartlepool play host to third-bottom Crawley Town.

With three points between the two teams, this looks like a must-win game for the hosts and home advantage could be crucial.

John Askey’s men had gone eight games without defeat before back-to-back away losses - at Newport and Salford - have seen them drop into the bottom two.

Although four of their last five home games have been draws, they are unbeaten in five at Victoria Park and they play a Crawley team that have lost eight of their last nine on the road.

Carlisle set sights on crucial derby win

What Barrow v Carlisle United 
Where Holker Street 
When 15:00, Saturday, 22nd April 
Odds Barrow 19/10, Draw 21/10, Carlisle 13/8 

Even though 72 miles separate the two clubs, this is the closest thing to a derby game for Carlisle and they will be desperate to keep their automatic promotion hopes alive.

The visitors are currently four points outside the top three and will believe a win is a must if they are to stand a chance of catching either Stevenage or Northampton.

Paul Simpson’s men are unbeaten in four games, but three of those have been costly draws and they will look for a league double over their fellow Cumbrians, following a 5-1 win at Brunton Park in January.

Barrow, who lost 2-1 in this fixture last term, have won their last three at home but they have all been against teams in the bottom half of the table.

Stockport can end Rochdale's hopes

What Stockport County v Rochdale 
Where Edgeley Park 
When 15:00, Saturday, 22nd April 
Odds Stockport 4/11, Draw 15/4, Rochdale 8/1

It’s fourth against 24th in a Greater Manchester derby clash, as Stockport face Rochdale knowing a home win will relegate the visitors.

Rochdale looked doomed at the end of March, but eight points from their last five matches have kept alive their slim hopes of avoiding the drop.

This could be the final nail in the coffin though, with Stockport looking to secure automatic promotion and extend their 10-game unbeaten run.

Salford can gain crucial win

What Walsall v Salford City 
Where Bescot Stadium 
When 15:00, Saturday, 22nd April 
Odds Walsall 14/5, Draw 5/2, Salford 1/1 

Salford are clinging on to the final play-off spot and need a win at Walsall to keep Mansfield at bay. 

Neil Wood’s men are ahead of the Stags on goal difference but Mansfield do have a game in hand, so this clash looks crucial to Salford’s play-off hopes. 

Walsall are another example of a team with nothing left to play for and the Saddlers have failed to win any of their last seven games and have drawn a blank in their last three. 

Salford are looking to complete a league double over Walsall this season after a 1-0 home success back in late January.
