Wolves host Peterborough this weekend as Kenny Jackett celebrates his League One manager of the month award. He will be keen to avoid defeat against promotion chasing Peterborough who head to Molineux on the back of a Johnstone's Paint trophy victory over Chesterfield. Posh also beat Colchester United in the league on Wednesday night as they look to keep their play-off hopes alive.

Albion face Norwich as they look to put last week's events behind them. Good news for Albion as Jonas Olsson returns and is expected to head straight back into the starting 11. Albion can take over Norwich with a win this weekend and Pepe Mel's side would still have a game in hand over the Canaries.

Walsall head to Port Vale this weekend as they look to extend their winning run and push towards the play-offs. Port Vale will be no pushover after they won the reverse fixture at Banks's Stadium. Vale can leapfrog Walsall in the table with victory today whereas Dean Smith's side can close the gap on sixth placed Peterborough should they drop points against Wolves.

Villa take on bottom side Fulham as Paul Lambert's side aim to return to winning ways after two successive 4-1 defeats. Fulham have won just once in their last 10 Premier League games - a 1-0 home win over Newcastle. Villa can go level on points with West Ham but go above them, Villa need a goal swing of six goals. For example, if Villa win 4-0, West Ham must lose 2-0. Lambert's side would be satisfied with victory in a bid to extend the gap between themselves and the relegation zone.
