Bolton v Leicester live stream, plus Reading v Middlesbrough to watch from Tuesday Championship

Leicester will head into the clash away to Bolton looking to secure the three points that would land them the Championship title.

The Foxes, already assured of promotion, moved a step closer to the title last time out with a hard fought 1-0 win over QPR and they can guarantee it on Tuesday against mid-table Bolton.

The club will have to do so without Jeff Schlupp and Jamie Vardy. Highly-rated Schlupp suffered a knee injury on Saturday and while it is not as serious as first thought he is unlikely to be risked against Bolton. The left back is set to be replaced by former Liverpool player Paul Konchesky.

Vardy meanwhile is still be eased back into action after a recent groin injury and will once again miss out.

Bolton meanwhile have very little left to play for and will head into the game without forward Andre Moritz. The Brazilian is struggling with a hamstring injury and unlikely to be risked.

While the club have nothing left to play, the players most certainly do with Bolton boss Dougie Freedman admitting that he is looking to add players with commitment to his squad.

“If people come in for any of my players, then the first conversation would be, ‘Do you want to stay?’ Freedman told the Bolton News. If the answer is ‘yes’ then I’d keep them, no doubt. But everything is for sale. It would be silly to say you’d answer every question with a ‘no’.

“I’m fed up, in 20 months of being here, of players who feel this football club owes them something. They think it’s their right that ‘I should be playing this week. We should be looking forward and I want players who want to be here. If they don’t want to be here, then that’s my attitude – go.”

“I have to do some trading. This club hasn’t done enough in the past. It hasn’t produced enough assets to trade. We’ve relied on loans, then when they go back we start all over again. I’m yet to see what the budget is going to be for next season, but I don’t think it will be as it has been. I would like to think I can keep a hold of one or two, but know that one or two will move on and a few will come in.

“I think it will naturally cut itself up with a few coming to the end of their contract who are on good Premier League money. It’s definitely opened my eyes that we need to trade. I owe it to the fans that we see some fresher, younger faces because when we’ve had that, results have improved.”

Elsewhere on Tuesday, Reading will look to reclaim their place in the top six with a victory over Middlesbrough. The club have slipped to ninth over the weekend in what is a very tight group of 6 to 7 teams chasing that final playoff spot.

Reading has been there or there about all season but a run of two defeats and a draw in their last 3 games has come at the wrong time. They face a Middlesbrough team that has won four of their last 5 games.
