After three games without winning, Leicester’s surge towards the Championship play-offs is in danger of falling apart, but they can remain on the periphery of the top six with a win over fourth-placed Norwich.
Sven-Goran Eriksson’s team were the better side for long periods of their latest game against leaders QPR and a repeat of this performance should be enough to see off Norwich.
Ladbrokes offer the best price in the Championship betting that Leicester beat Norwich at 1/1 and they come into the game with seven victories in their last 11 league appearances.
Norwich head into the showdown on a five-game unbeaten run and are 11/4 to win at Leicester, with the draw priced at 12/5.
Nottingham Forest are another team looking to remain in the play-off places and they will fancy their chances of improving on their own recent poor form in their fixture at Sheffield United.
Forest have taken just three points from their last four games, but the Blades have been even worse as they have failed to win in 13 games in all competitions under Micky Adams.
Nottingham Forest’s betting odds are 6/5 to beat Sheffield United and depending on other results, a win could lift them into the automatic promotion places.
Sheffield United are 23/10 to win their first Championship game of 2011, although the best bet may be the 8/11 that the clash witnesses fewer than 2.5 goals scored.
Another tense encounter is set to take place at the KC Stadium, with Hull and Burnley hoping to continue their good recent form to remain on the brink of the play-off places.
Hull have lost just one of their last 11 Championship games and are 11/8 to win, while Burnley are 2/1 to land the spoils and extend their run to 16 points from a possible 18.
