Brighton will be promoted to the Premier League if they better third-placed Huddersfield's result. If they match it, they would be 12 points clear with a vastly superior goal difference and Huddersfield only having 12 to play for.
Huddersfield could clinch their play-off position with victory if Fulham earlier lose at home to Aston Villa, also live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 2.30pm.
Reading will also be guaranteed a play-off spot if they beat Rotherham while Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday both lose.
Derby require a win - or a draw coupled with a Sheffield Wednesday defeat at QPR - to keep their play-off hopes alive. They must also hope Fulham drop points.
Cardiff are as good as safe and will mathematically assure their survival if they avoid defeat at home to Nottingham Forest. Ipswich can do likewise if they better Blackburn's result - the Tractor Boys host Newcastle and Rovers face Bristol City, as can Wolves if they win and Blackburn do not.
At the bottom, Wigan, Blackburn, Burton and Nottingham Forest will be looking to boost their survival hopes.
Sheffield United - who host Bradford at Bramall Lane live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 12pm - are already certain of the title and wins in their final three games would take them to 100 points.
Fleetwood can clinch their play-off spot by beating Millwall, who would then be unable to catch them - or Bradford, should they surprisingly win at Bramall Lane.
If Southend lose at home to MK Dons, then draws would be enough for Fleetwood and Bradford while Scunthorpe could also make sure by beating Chesterfield, relegating the Spireites in the process.
If Fleetwood and Bradford both lose, Bolton would then be able to secure the second promotion spot on Tuesday by beating Bury at home.
Defeat at home to Oldham would end Bristol Rovers' play-off hopes and even a draw may not be enough. Rochdale would also be out of contention if Millwall better their result, or if Southend win and Dale drop points at home to relegated Coventry.
Chesterfield's relegation will be rubber-stamped unless they win at Scunthorpe, Port Vale and Swindon fail to win at Oxford and Walsall respectively, and Bury then lose on Tuesday.
Gillingham can secure their survival if they win, Vale lose and Swindon drop points. Oldham, Charlton and Northampton are two points better off than the Gills, so draws could be enough.
Doncaster are already promoted and Plymouth Argyle will join them unless they lose at home to struggling Newport and Luton win at Mansfield.
If Luton drop points, Portsmouth can clinch promotion by winning at Notts County.
Leyton Orient will be relegated to the National League if they fail to beat Hartlepool at home.
If Newport, Hartlepool or Cheltenham drop points, some combination of Notts County, Barnet, Morecambe, Crewe and Crawley can set aside any lingering threat of relegation.
With much of the table so closely bunched, Notts County and Barnet could simultaneously be eliminated from play-off contention and move mathematically safe from relegation.
