Sports Mole looks ahead to Saturday's Championship clash between Crystal Palace and Leicester City.

Two of the Championship's promotion hopefuls meet at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon when Crystal Palace host Leicester City.

Palace have failed to win any of their last six games, losing four of them. Their playoff hopes suffered a blow on Tuesday evening when they lost 3-0 at Ipswich Town.

Leicester come into the match off the back of their 3-2 win over Bolton Wanderers in midweek, a result which moved the Foxes up to sixth place, two points behind their fifth-placed hosts.

Palace boss Ian Holloway could make changes to the side which lost at Ipswich, with Stephen Dobbie and Kevin Phillips both pushing for starts.

Jeffrey Schlupp and Chris Wood could keep their places up front for the visitors after both scored in the victory over Bolton, which would see David Nugent remain on the bench.
