Sports Mole previews this weekend's Championship showdown between Leicester City and Barnsley.

High-flying Leicester City go into this Saturday's Championship clash with relegation-threatened Barnsley as the clear favourites to pick up three points.

Nigel Pearson's side recorded an emphatic 4-1 win over Derby County in their last game, while the visitors lost to Watford by the same scoreline.

A win for the third-placed Foxes will put pressure on the sides in the automatic promotion places, and a Barnsley loss could see them slip into the relegation zone.

Pearson is likely to go with the same starting XI that thrashed Derby, while midfield duo David Perkins (hamstring) and Jacob Mellis (dead leg) are doubtful for Barnsley.
