Title chasing Foxes host playoff hopefuls West Brom

Leicester City host West Bromwich Albion in a clash of huge importance for both sides as the promotion race hots up. City, favourites for promotions and the Championship title, take on West Bromwich Albion. Leicester’s promotion bid has suffered due to consecutive defeats, while a surprise home defeat against Sunderland last time out was a blow to the Baggies’ playoff bid.

Leicester City

Leicester City’s promotion hopes have hit a snag following successive away defeats against Millwall and Plymouth Argyle, raising concerns about their ability to secure a top-two finish in the Championship.

After registering consecutive home wins against Norwich City and Birmingham City, which momentarily eased fears of a late-season downturn, Leicester’s fortunes took a downturn with defeats away from home.

At Home Park, despite dominating possession and creating numerous scoring opportunities, Leicester fell short as Mustapha Bundu’s 21st-minute goal secured a vital win for Plymouth Argyle. The loss compounded Leicester’s recent struggles, with Enzo Maresca’s side suffering six defeats in their last ten Championship matches, managing only three victories in that span.

The Foxes’ dip in form is exemplified by their position in the form table, where they currently languish in 19th place—a stark contrast to a team aiming for Premier League promotion. The pressure on key striker Patson Daka is mounting, with the Zambian international enduring a two-month goal drought, including missed chances in crucial fixtures.

With only four matches remaining in the Championship campaign, Leicester finds themselves clinging to second place, holding a precarious one-point lead over third-placed Leeds United. The pressure is palpable as every point becomes crucial in their bid for automatic promotion.

As the race for promotion intensifies, Leicester City must regroup and rediscover their winning form to fend off the mounting threat from Leeds United and secure their desired promotion to the Premier League.

Daka could be replaced in the starting line up by either Tom Cannon or Kelechi Iheanacho. England international defender Conor Coady could come into the side. 

West Bromwich Albion

West Brom’s ten-game unbeaten streak in the Championship came to a disappointing halt at The Hawthorns last Saturday, as Sunderland, led by Mike Dodds, secured maximum points with a first-half goal from Pierre Ekwah.

The turning point arrived in the 43rd minute when Albion’s Brandon Thomas-Asante received his marching orders for a second caution, leaving the hosts with ten men. Despite their efforts, they couldn’t overturn the deficit, marking their first home loss since February 16 when Southampton visited.

Manager Carlos Corberan remains confident about their playoff prospects, given their current fifth position, seven points ahead of seventh-placed Hull City. The January transfer window brought in exciting winger Mikey Johnston from Celtic, who has already made a significant impact with seven goals in 15 Championship appearances.

However, West Brom’s away form continues to be a challenge, with only six wins in 21 outings this season. This inconsistency away from home has been a recurring issue since their relegation from the Premier League in 2021, hampering their pursuit of a top-two finish.

Thomas-Asante is suspended after his red card against Sunderland. Either Jed Wallace or Andreas Weimann could come in up top. Okay Yokuslu was rested against Sunderland, however, he is expected to return to the side on Saturday.
