thumbnail Hello,

Saturday lunchtime sees the top two in the Championship face off, with only three points separating them, and our tipster, Hugh Wilson, is backing goals at Turf Moor

Burnley and Leicester City meet at Turf Moor in the Championship on Saturday, with Sean Dyche's men looking to move level on points with the Foxes, with only goal difference to separate the sides if the Clarets win.

The top two look all but certain to gain promotion to the Premier League this summer, with 10 points separating QPR, in third, and second-placed Burnley.

The hosts come into this game unbeaten in their last 14 matches, winning nine of those. Dyche's side were under pressure over the Christmas period but a fantastic 2014 has cemented their place in the automatic promotion places. Paddy Power price them at 7/4 (2.75) to take all three points.

Leicester were given a real test by relegation-threatened Yeovil Town in midweek, with a last-minute Chris Wood goal rescuing them a point. Nigel Pearson's men have been solid, if not spectacular, in recent weeks, drawing two and winning three of their last five.

However, it is their consistency and ability to pick up points that sees them top the league, with the Foxes going 18 games in the Championship unbeaten, winning 13 of those games. Paddy Power price them at 6/4 (2.50) to win this clash, with the same firm pricing the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

With both sides on lengthy unbeaten runs, backing the game to finish in a draw may be a sensible play but, with Burnley having the chance to potentially go top of the Championship, it is worth avoiding the outright result, especially considering the significant cushion between the two teams and the chasing pack.

Instead, it is worth looking at goals in this match. Over 2.5 goals at 4/5 (1.80) seems to be a fantastic bet with Paddy Power. This bet would have landed in six of Leicester's last eight matches, as well as four of Burnley's last five games.
