        Coventry vs Leicester Prediction, Tips & Stats

        Leicester City's table-topping status in the Championship will face a huge test this weekend when they meet with Coventry City in a Midlands derby as the Foxes aim to keep up their 10-point gap on Ipswich Town in second place.

        The Foxes have had an excellent season so far and come into this game with a 10-point gap on Ipswich in second. Leicester have only lost three times this season, all of which have come against teams in the top four, as Ipswich Town beat them in a 4-3 thriller after Leeds United in fourth did the double on them as well.

        Leicester also edged past Millwall in the FA Cup over the weekend to get into the next round of the competition, as Cesare Casadei and Ricardo Pereira scored before Tom Cannon got another goal in the midst of his excellent goalscoring form.

        Prior to this, the Foxes put together a lengthy unbeaten run in the league, beating Huddersfield Town, Rotherham United, Birmingham City, Cardiff City, Millwall and Plymouth Argyle throughout December. The club also managed to draw at Portman Road with Ipswich and also at Hillsborough to Sheffield Wednesday. A further win in late November over Watford now means 11 games unbeaten and nine wins since the loss to Middlesbrough before the last international break.

        As for Coventry, it's been another positive season for them and they could jump into the playoff spots once again, should Sunderland and Hull City win their games and they win here at home. The Sky Blues eased into the fourth round of the FA Cup last weekend with a 6-2 win over Oxford United, which put the club on an eight-game unbeaten run since losing away to Ipswich.

        They have since gone on to beat Birmingham, Sunderland, Wednesday and Boro, alongside draws with Southampton and Ipswich Town. In fact, beating the likes of Boro and Sunderland on their own patch alongside draws against those in the top four is enough evidence to suggest Coventry can get the job done here and fight for another spot in the playoffs, just like last year.

        Coventry team news

        Liam Kelly has now returned to action, but Ben Sheaf is out of action in this one with a head injury. Liam Kitching will also miss out due to his suspension picked up against Sheffield Wednesday. A 6-2 over Oxford United over the weekend saw Ellis Simms start once more but fire a blank, although he should start alongside Callum O'Hare again. Simon Moore missed that game but should come back in here, as Jamie Allen, Jay Dasilva, Matt Godden and Fabio Tavares may all return to the starting XI.

        Leicester team news

        Patson Daka, Harry Souttar and Kelechi Iheanacho are all on international duty this month and won't feature for a while. Kasey Mcateer is nearing a return but might not do so in this game, while Jamie Vardy's knock means he faces a late fitness test. Marc Albrighton is also out of action in this game, and the injuries up top for the Foxes likely forces in Tom Cannon once more.
