A run of just one league win in eight has pretty much put paid to Leicester’s hopes of securing automatic promotion to the Premier League and if the Foxes don’t turn things around soon they’ll also run the risk of missing out on the play-offs.
This week Nigel Pearson’s men face a potentially fiery encounter against local rivals Derby County and the Pride Park and given that the Rams are in even worse shape at the moment, the showdown provides Leicester with the ideal chance to get back on track.
The Trotters are flying at the moment having put together an eight-match unbeaten run and the play-offs are now very much a realistic ambition for Dougie Freedman’s charges, who head to Portman Road on the back of five straight wins. They should have too much then for the inconsistent hosts.
Elsewhere, Paul ince picked up his first win as Blackpool boss last week and Coral make his team 10/11 to pick up another success as they host Peterborough while bet365 rate Leeds at 10/11 to see off Huddersfield but we’re happy to stick with the travelling pair.
Double on Leicester and Bolton – 27/5 (BetVictor)
