Sports Mole previews Middlesbrough's trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City.

Leicester City host Middlesbrough on Friday evening as they look to record their fifth victory in a row.

Nigel Pearson's side have gone from strength to strength in recent weeks, moving to the brink of the Championship playoff places.

Pearson could make one change to the team that began the 4-0 triumph over Bristol City, bringing in Lloyd Dyer for Anthony Knockaert.

Middlesbrough have endured an inconsistent run of form of late, losing their last two games in the Championship.

Those defeats have come either side of progression in the FA Cup but manager Tony Mowbray will be desperate to turn around their league form.

Midfielder Merouane Zemmama could come into the side in place of Emmanuel Ledesma.
