Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Championship clash between Bolton Wanderers and Leicester City.

Leicester City will wrap up the Championship title if they beat Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Nigel Pearson's side, who have already secured promotion this season, lead second-placed Burnley by seven points with three games remaining.

The Foxes picked up their first victory in three outings when they beat 10-man Queens Park Rangers 1-0 at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

After struggling in the bottom half of the table for the majority of the season, Bolton have improved in recent weeks, going their last six games unbeaten.

Dougie Freedman's side remain 14th in the standings after they played out a goalless draw with Charlton Athletic on Friday.

Leicester boss Pearson has no fresh injury concerns and could name the same side that beat QPR, with David Nugent continuing to lead the line. Lloyd Dyer and Chris Wood are in contention for recalls.

Freedman could be tempted to make changes to his side, with Ryan Hall in line to start at the expense of Chung-Yong Lee.

Leicester emerged 5-3 victors when the sides met at the King Power Stadium at the end of December.
