Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between Leicester City and Sheffield Wednesday.

Leicester City and Sheffield Wednesday meet in the Championship this weekend with both sides in need of three points for very different reasons.

Nigel Pearson's side are looking to consolidate their position inside the playoff places, going into the match in fifth position on 58 points.

The visitors' form may have picked up in the second half of the season, but they are on a run of two straight defeats and will start the afternoon just two points above the drop zone.

Paul Konchesky is doubtful for Leicester as he is awaiting the results of a scan to determine the severity of a hamstring injury.

Wednesday are without the services of Giles Coke after he picked up a foot injury mid-week, while Reda Johnson has been passed unfit.
