Stoke City v Hull City
Team news: Mohamed Diame is still out with a knee injury and not expected to return until the trip to Leicester City on March 14. James Chester has also suffered a setback in his recovery from a dislocated shoulder with the injury having become infected, potentially delaying his return to later in the spring.
Charlton Athletic v Huddersfield Town
Team news: Conor Coady and Sean Scannell are back in the squad and expected to feature after missing the midweek win over Reading with illness and a tight hamstring respectively. Nahki Wells, though, is rated as only “50-50” to be available after being clattered to the ground against the Royals and forced out of the action.
Leeds United v Watford
Team news: Sam Byram is likely to return after a knee problem but Steve Morison is a doubt with the groin injury that forced him out of the midweek defeat to Brighton. Giuseppe Bellusci completes a two-game ban for collecting ten yellow cards.
Rotherham United v Millwall
Team news: Tomorrow’s game comes just a little too early for Lee Frecklington, who has had several days back in training this week.
Sheffield Wednesday v Middlesbrough
Team news: Goalkeeper Keiren Westwood is available after a one-match ban, Chris Kirkland having started against Millwall in midweek. For Boro....
Crawley Town v Sheffield United
Team news: Matty Done is on standby to step in for Marc McNulty if the striker fails to recover from a knock that forced him out of the midweek win over Rochdale. Michale Higdon (hamstring) and Stefan Scougall (knee) are also doubts.
Doncaster Rovers v Colchester United
Team news: James Coppinger (ankle) will be assessed, but the game is likely to come too soon. Lee McCullough is pressing for a start, with Rob Jones still unlikely not to be involved.
Gillingham v Barnsley
Team news: Ross Turnbull (back), Sam Winnall (hamstring) and Peter Ramage (thigh) are all doubts, having missed the midweek win at Scunthorpe, along with Dale Jennings (illness).
Peterborough United v Bradford City

York City v Exeter City
Team news: Russ Wilcox has no fresh injury concerns, while Luke Summerfield is edging back towards full fitness after missing the last four fixtures with a thigh problem. Today will come too soon but he could be back in contention for next week’s trip to Cambridge.
