Draw Away, Win at Home

  It's often said that a promotion season, or even a championship season, needs an average of 2 points a match (leaving you 92 points, enough to have been promoted for at least the last five seasons and won most of those leagues).  Drawing your away matches, often harder to do well in than at home, and winning those more comfortable home matches in front of your own fans will give you that average.

  In the last eight matches in all competitions, Leicester City have either matched or bettered that average, having played four of the top six Championship clubs, Cardiff twice.  That also includes three clean sheets in a row after having conceding 9 in the previous eight matches.  The Foxes are going places, for sure and a win on Saturday against Derby, in front of the Sky cameras, will solidify that opinion.

  More ruthlessness and a more clinical approach to attacking would not be a bad thing, only six teams have scored less than Leicester in the league so far, but when Nugent comes back from injury and as long as Jermaine Beckford shakes off his groin strain, the goals could start flowing.
