- Recommended bet:
Tie or West Brom

Title-chasing Leicester face a huge test of their credentials when they welcome play-off hopefuls West Brom to the King Power Stadium for Championship action on Saturday.

The race to reach the Premier League is set to go right down to the wire, with leaders Ipswich five points ahead of fourth-place Southampton, who have a game in hand on the Tractor Boys.

Leicester sit in second, a point off the summit and also with a match in hand, while Leeds are a further point in arrears in third as the quartet battle for the top two spots.

Team news

Leicester are missing Kasey McAteer, who is sidelined with a hamstring problem, while Harry Souttar is unavailable due to injury.

West Brom's Brandon Thomas-Asante is suspended after picking up a red card in the defeat to Sunderland last time out.

Jayson Molumby is out for the rest of the season and Daryl Dike is not expected back until the end of the year.

The stats

Leicester have suffered back-to-back 1-0 away defeats to Millwall and Plymouth, while the Foxes have collected just two victories from their last seven assignments in all competitions.

West Brom's 10-game unbeaten streak was ended last time out after losing 1-0 at home to Sunderland.

The Baggies have not tasted defeat in their last seven away matches, winning two and drawing five of those.

Huddersfield (10) are the only team to have drawn more road games in the Championship than West Brom, who have shared the spoils eight times.


Leicester's inconsistencies are hurting their bid to secure an instant return to the Premier League and they could suffer another blow when West Brom visit the King Power Stadium.

It is safe to say the top three in the table are all making mistakes as the pressure ramps up and while the Baggies will have to earn promotion via the play-offs, they could consign Leicester to the same fate.

West Brom are almost assured of a top-six finish and a positive result in the East Midlands, whether that be a win or a draw, should be enough to reach the play-offs.

The Baggies are a tough nut to crack on the road, drawing four of their last five away assignments, and they can take advantage of what is expected to be a nerve-filled King Power.
