This year is closer then ever in the relegation dogfight. There are seven teams fighting for Football League survival. Here is the low-down on each of them and who is more likely to get relegated.

18th | York
Played: 36
Points: 40

York are really struggling for form of late. They haven't won in 11 games including a loss to fellow strugglers Barnet and a draw against Aldershot, however they should just do enough to avoid the drop but if this poor run of form continues, they could see themselves slide below the dotted line.

19th | Aldershot
Played: 36
Points: 39

Aldershot are really drawing themselves away from the drop, unbeaten in five and playing well. However, their poor start means they're still in big trouble and one loss could put them back in the bottom two.

20th | Torquay
Played: 35
Points: 38

Torquay are on a terrible run of form, losing seven of their last eight and all seven before their last game draw (at least they didn't lose). But their team is good enough to survive and shouldn't be in this position in the first place.

21st | Barnet
Played: 35
Points: 37

Barnet are always going to be in this position at this time in the year, and they always find a way to survive, and this year should be even easier as they have the experienced Edgar Davids at the helm. They are on an average run of form but if they can pick it up slightly, their league status will be prolonged for another season.

22nd | Accrington Stanley
Played: 35
Points: 37

Accrington are just one point and place from the drop so they will need a strong finish to avoid relegation. Their form is decent as well so it could be close.

23rd | Plymouth
Played: 35
Points: 36

Plymouth really need to pick up the points and a win against rivals Barnet on the weekend will go a long way to help but they're still in deep trouble and their form wasn't great before the recent win so they could be in trouble.

24th | Wimbledon
Played: 35
Points: 36

Wimbledon's poor goal difference could prove the difference between survival and the drop. They are on decent form so it might come down to the final day.

This year might be the closest one for a while and it will probably come down to the final day, so who will survive?
