Sports Mole looks ahead to Saturday's Championship clash between struggling Ipswich and high-flying Leicester at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town will be in need of a positive result when they welcome high-flying Leicester City to Portman Road in the Championship on Saturday.

Mick McCarthy's side are just four points off the relegation zone following one defeat and a draw in their last two matches.

Meanwhile, a win for the fifth-placed visitors could move them to within two points of the automatic promotion places.

Leicester hammered Ipswich 6-0 when the two teams met at the King Power Stadium in November.

The hosts have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match, but new loan signing Reece Brown could be included in the squad.

David Nugent is an injury doubt for the visitors with a neck problem, while Foxes assistant manager Craig Shakespeare told the club's official website that a number of players were suffering with "a few bruises".
