Here are the odds and ratings for the League 1 and League 2 matches taking place this weekend. There are no Scottish Premiership games because it's the Scottish FA Cup Quarter-Finals so I thought I would chuck those odds in as well for our resident members who are located up north! Let us know your predictions for these matches! :ok

Gillingham vs Northampton

The League One action is boiling down to an exciting finale this weekend and one game I feel offers decent value is the clash between Gillingham and Northampton in a 3pm BST kick-off on Saturday afternoon from the Priestfield Stadium. These are two sides fighting their own fights at opposite ends of the tables but are all the signs pointing to a standard home win or will the pressure get to either side?

Gillingham are enjoying life under Steve Evans with the club in 9th place and just 4 points off the play-off push. A top six finish is still looking a tall order given that the likes of Charlton, Blackpool, and Lincoln currently positioned in the play-off places have two games in hand on the Gills. The team has displayed some inconsistent results and performances recently with just 2 wins from their last 7 league games and 1 win in their last 4 matches in the league. An impressive 1-0 win away to Peterborough during the week showed that this Gillingham side are a match for anyone.

Northampton are staring at the prospect of a return to League Two unless they can improve their own results and rely on other sides to help them out. Jon Brady has a slow start to life in charge of the Cobblers but the club have started picking up some more wins. Still, the team are down in 21st place and 4 points adrift of safety. The clock is ticking and it's not looking good. Just 1 win from their last 4 league matches hasn't helped their survival hopes but the 3-0 victory at home to Ipswich was a rare jovial moment for the fans and kept their chances of staying up alive. The ongoing issue is away form though. It's now 15 away league games without a win and 6 defeats from their last 7 away league matches.

I think all the signs are pointing towards a home win. Gillingham look like a team right now that can compete with anyone and it feels like they're going to give this play-off push a real go. If they can win here and other results go their way then they enter the final two games of the season with a real chance. Northampton look doomed. Their away form has been atrocious all season and it'll be their undoing.

Oldham vs Grimsby

The League Two schedule is all packed out today and the focus of my preview is the match-up between mid-table Oldham and relegation-threatened Grimsby in a 3pm BST kick-off on Saturday afternoon from Boundary Park. This is one of those games where the unpredictability factor goes up because the away side face the imminent threat of the drop but do they have enough quality or fight to get something from this game?

Oldham can look at this season and consider it one of consolidation. It could've been a lot worse but it also could have been better. Keith Curle is the man charged with getting the club back to the good times after his disappointing end to his time at Northampton. The Latics are in 15th place and realistically they are preparing for next season now. It's been 3 wins from their last 4 league games but the most eye-opening statistic has been the 15 goals that Oldham have scored during those 4 league matches. The fact that those goals have been scored by 8 different scorers suggests that the artillery is coming in from all over the pitch.

Grimsby are facing a demoralising return to the National League. Former manager Ian Holloway has been blamed by a lot of their fans for the club's current predicament but the appointment of Paul Hurst back in December has only see the club earn 3 wins in the 21 league games he has overseen. That said, there has been signs of hope. The Mariners have only lost 2 of their previous 11 league games but 7 of those games have ended in draws. It's stopped the rot but it's not been an improvement in performances to such a degree that it will save them. The club are 9 points adrift of safety with 4 league games to play. It seems the inevitable is near.

You can see that the ELO ratings back an Oldham win heavily here and if it was a couple of weeks ago then you might question it with Grimsby starting to grind out results. Unfortunately, the defeats have started slipping back into their season and it seems they'll fall just short. We could very well see Grimsby relegated today unless they can put in a rare away win having previously only won 1 of their last 12 away league matches.
