Huddersfield take on Sheffield Wednesday in the pick of the Easter weekend's League One games, as the battle for promotion and scrap for survival become increasingly heated.
A handful of matches take place on Good Friday before the rest of the action on Saturday, when the top five teams will all play.
Saturday's early kick-off pits Huddersfield against Sheffield Wednesday in a Yorkshire derby that also has huge significance in the tussle for automatic promotion.
Simon Grayson's Terriers currently occupy fourth spot and can go above Sheffield Wednesday on goal difference with a home win, but the Owls will be looking to continue their fine form and keep up the pressure on those above them.
Second-placed Sheffield United have a two-point advantage over their Steel City rivals and are unbeaten in six ahead of their meeting with Bournemouth at Bramall Lane.
Charlton remain the team to catch despite a recent wobble and will be determined to maintain their six-point cushion at the summit when they face an Oldham side on a three-match losing streak.
Milton Keynes Dons can tighten their grip on fifth by overcoming Preston, who have not won in their past four games to drop towards the relegation dogfight.
Also on Saturday, bottom-of-the-table Chesterfield travel to fellow strugglers Walsall in the knowledge that they are nearing the point of no return.
Rochdale are also in the bottom four ahead of their clash at Yeovil, while Brentford will be targeting a fifth straight win at home to Bury.
On Friday, Exeter will be desperate to boost their survival hopes by beating Scunthorpe after sliding to second-bottom on the back of an eight-match winless streak.
Improving Wycombe have the opportunity to climb out of the drop zone, for 24 hours at least, by picking up three points against play-off contenders Carlisle.
Notts County can stay in contention for a top-six finish by getting the better of a Leyton Orient side desperate for points at the other end of the table.
A nine-match unbeaten run has kept Stevenage in with a chance of securing play-off football but eight of those games have been draws and they will be looking to pick up a victory away to Tranmere.
Colchester also face Hartlepool on Friday in a contest between two teams occupying mid-table positions.
