18.30, Morecambe v Southend: Morecambe to Win to Nil

Southend look odds-on to drop out of the Football League and it’s not too difficult to see why. Currently five points adrift of safety, they have scored the fewest number of goals in the Football League with the exception of Sheffield United.

Their record in recent games is particularly poor. Mark Molesley’s side have failed to score in seven of their last nine league goals, scoring just twice across the barren nine-game spell. Their fortunes are unlikely to change against promotion-chasing Morecambe.

Morecambe have conceded the most goals in the top-15 of League Two but will hope a third clean sheet in four games and claim a crucial three points in the race for the play-offs against a Southend side that looks incapable of scoring goals.

19.00, Brentford v Birmingham: Brentford to Win

There is no question about it; Brentford simply have to win on Tuesday night if they are to keep their faint hopes of automatic promotion alive.

Thomas Frank’s side have now drawn their last three games against sides in the lower half of the table and are rapidly losing ground to Watford in their bid for the top two.

There is some hope, however, as Watford’s run-in is decidedly tricky and involves a game with Brentford on the penultimate weekend of the season.

Nevertheless, Brentford can afford no further slip ups between now and May and must beat relegation-threatened Birmingham at home on Tuesday.

Birmingham eased their relegation fears with a last-gasp win over promotion hopefuls Swansea, but they are not out of the woods by any means, sitting just six points above 22nd-placed Rotherham who have four games in-hand.

Lee Bowyer’s charges will provide a stern challenge for Brentford on Tuesday, but they have picked up just five points from their last seven away games. Nothing but three points will be enough for Thomas Frank’s side.

19.45, Norwich v Huddersfield: Norwich (-1)

Norwich may have dropped points in their two most recent games, but it matters little in their quest for an immediate return to the Premier League.

The Canaries are coasting to automatic promotion and enjoy a 15-point buffer over third-placed Brentford with just 24 points available.

Having said that, Daniel Farke will surely hope to mark Norwich’s return to the Premier League as champions and will want to return to winning ways against a Huddersfield side that has virtually sealed their Championship status and has very little to play for.

The Terriers are currently enjoying a five-game unbeaten streak, but they have managed just one win in that five-game spell.

Norwich are unbeaten in 11 games and appear to be on a relentless march back to the top tier of English football. They should return to winning ways on Tuesday night.
