Sports Mole looks ahead to this weekend's Championship clash between Derby County and Leicester City.

Neither Derby County nor Leicester City have secured a victory in their last four fixtures as both sides fight for three vital points in a Championship clash this weekend.

The home side are just six points away from the dreaded drop into League One, but while Leicester have experienced a recent slump, they still remain in the playoff places.

Derby have struggled to take their home advantage due to their last two draws at Pride Park, while Leicester mirror their opponents' inconsistency on away turf.

Chris Martin and Conor Sammon are likely to start for Derby, while the visitors could opt for David Nugent and Chris Wood to lead the line.
