Foxes have been in fantastic form so far in 2014 grabbing the division by the proverbial balls and storming out in front. After beginning 2014 with 6 straight league wins Leicester have slowed down recently drawing 2-2 with both Watford and Nottingham Forest and Pearson will be keen to see his side get back to winning ways against play off chasing Ipswich.
Waiting in the wings for any potential slip ups is a Burnley, Derby and QPR.
Sean Dyche’s Burnley side have won two and drawn three of their last five and remain in pole position to seal the second promotion place not to mention benefit from any Leicester slip up. They face a tough task this weekend against another promotion hopeful Nottingham Forest.
Derby have been showing mixed form of late but after draws with Blackburn and Birmingham they earlier in February they have picked up six points against QPR and Sheffield Wednesday and will fancy their chances against Bournemouth.
QPR meanwhile have lost two on the trot and will hope to get back on track away to fellow Londoners Charlton. Harry Redknapp’s side are currently 12 points off the lead but more importantly just four points off second place Burnley.
Meanwhile despite their status as midtable and struggling sides, one of the day’s most interesting encounters is set to take place at the John Smith stadium as Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield and Sheffield Wednesday do battle.
Just seven points and four places separates the two teams and with both sides showing mixed form of late finding a winner here will be a difficult ask.
A game that already has plenty of spice to it has a bit extra in the last 12 months with Huddersfield now managed by former Owl Mark Robbins.
Despite his links to the opposition the former Manchester United striker is excited at the prospect of taking on Wednesday on Saturday.
It’s a local derby. I played at Sheffield Wednesday and I know what a big, well-supported club it can be,” he told Town’s official website.
“We’re looking forward to the game. It represents the chance to go and get one over on a local rival. It’s an interesting weekend ahead.”
Elsewhere struggling Yeovil and Doncaster clash at Huish Park. Donny will be disappointed by last weekend’s showing against Barnsley when they conceded two late goals to share the spoils.
The club have been in relatively good form recently suffering just one defeat in their last five however with three draws turning one point into three has proved a problem for Paul Dickov and his side.
Playoff hopefuls Brighton and Wigan meet at the Amex Stadium with both sides’ just four points off sixth place Reading and showing similar form while Middlesbrough will hope for their first win in six when they take on Leeds at the Riverside.
Bolton take on Watford, Barnsley face Millwall, Reading welcome Blackburn to the Madjeski and Blackpool entertain Birmingham in the days other games.
