Leicester's seemingly relentless march towards the Championship title suffered a rare setback last time out when they were beaten 3-1 at Coventry.

The Foxes still boast a seven-point buffer to chasers Southampton and Ipswich, who head to the East Midlands following a first win in six league games after beating Sunderland 2-1 in their last match.

  • Leicester to win & both teams to score @ 13/5
  • Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall first goalscorer @ 8/1

Team news
Jamie Vardy could make his first appearance for Leicester since late November after returning to training recently.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall is a slight doubt after picking up a knock in the defeat at Coventry but loanee Cesare Casadei has been recalled by parent club Chelsea.

Ipswich's Sam Morsy is injured and his regular midfield partner Massimo Luongo is suspended. Cameron Burgess is at the Asian Cup while George Hirst, Janoi Donacien and Lee Evans are injured.

Brighton loanee Jeremy Sarmiento could make his first start for the Tractor Boys.

Leicester to win & both teams to score @ 13/5

Only Hull and Leeds have left the King Power Stadium with three points this season and Championship leaders Leicester can ensure that Ipswich don't add their names to that select list.

The Foxes have won their other 11 home games in the second tier, with seven of those successes accompanied by a clean sheet.

However, Leicester have conceded in four of their last five games and have let in six goals in their last three outings.

That should give Ipswich belief that they can get at the Foxes' backline and, even without injured striker George Hirst, the visitors could add to their 50-goal haul for the season, albeit in defeat.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall first goalscorer @ 8/1

Attacking midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has popped up with some important goals for Leicester this season.

Dewsbury-Hall has netted nine times in the league, as well as registering nine assists, but he continues to be a little underrated in the goalscorer markets.

Odds of 8/1 about the 25-year-old scoring first, as he did from the penalty spot in Leicester's defeat at Coventry last time, are certainly worth considering if he is able to overcome a slight knock suffered in that loss.

Match Odds

Leicester are 19/20 to return to winning ways against Ipswich, who are 11/4 to become just the third side to win at the King Power Stadium this season. The draw is priced up at 5/2.

Over 2.5 goals, which has landed in Leicester's last four home outings, is a 4/5 chance while it is 4/6 that both teams find the net, just as they did when the two sides met at Portman Road on Boxing Day.
