Now is the time to compare the run-ins of all the chief League Two play-off candidates, with just three games remaining.
Colchester United are currently three places and two points off the top-seven, but they have arguably one of the ‘best’ run-ins of all the contenders.
After today’s home fixture against already-promoted Plymouth, they travel to bottom club Leyton Orient next weekend – the O’s will be relegated today, if they lose at Crewe.
Luton are four points clear of eighth-placed Carlisle, and so look assured of a play-off berth, while fifth-placed Stevenage have a two-point buffer and two home games to come, although their recent form has been indifferent.
Sixth-placed Exeter have to travel to leaders Doncaster next weekend, before ending their campaign with a home match against play-off rivals Carlisle.

In many ways, Blackpool have the most appealing of all the run-ins. The Seasiders are in seventh spot, but have a good goal difference (plus 19) and have home matches against lowly Cheltenham and Leyton Orient (final game) sandwiching a visit to Notts County.
Cambridge, Carlisle, Accrington and Mansfield all have two of their final three games on the road.
