With promotion to the Premier League secured, the Foxes must now secure the Championship title and victory tonight will send them one step closer

Leicester City travel to promotion chasing Reading tonight with only five games left in the Championship this season.

Nigel Pearson's men have six point lead over Burnley after the Clarets lost over the weekend. The home side Reading currently sit in eighth position, only one point behind Brighton, who occupy the final play-off spot so punters can assured both teams will be fully focused on Monday's clash.

The Royals come into this game after a disappointing loss away against play-off rivals Bournemouth last Tuesday. Nigel Atkins men went down 3-1 on the south coast.

Reading have struggled at home since February, going six matches without a win, losing three of those games.

With Barnsley, Blackburn and Sheffield Wednesday beating them recently, they will need to shake off this home voodoo if they are to climb into the play-off positions. bet365 price them at 21/10 (3.10) to win.

After the celebration of promotion last week, it's no surprise the Foxes had a come down as they faced Brighton at home last Tuesday.

The hangover's may have still be rife, as Pearson's side went down 4-1 at home. However, you can be assured Pearson will have set up his side to win this evening, with victory all but assuring the Championship title. bet365 price them at 11/8 (2.38) to win, with the same firm pricing the draw at 5/2 (3.50).

When you take into consideration Reading's current home form, it's tempting to back the visitors to extend their lead at the top of the table with a win. However, instead of backing Leicester outright, it's worth backing them in the goals market.

With the visitors not struggling for goals away this season, the over 1.5 team goals bet has been a good play, with the Foxes scoring 13 goals in their last seven away matches. The price of 11/10 (2.10) is a fantastic price when you consider it would have landed in five of their last seven away games. With Reading conceding seven in their last four games, it's worth investing in this price.
