Leicester City fixtures

  • Plymouth Argyle (A) - 12 April, 20:00
  • West Brom (H) - 20 April, 12:30
  • Southampton (H) - 23 April, 20:00
  • Preston (A) - 27 April, 15:00
  • Blackburn Rovers (H) - 4 May, 12:30

With statistically the easiest run-in of the three - combined with the fact they possess a game in hand on Leeds and Ipswich - Leicester sneak favouritism for the title at 8/15.

The Foxes' title credentials will be put to the test in back-to-back home matches against West Brom and Southampton.

Enzo Maresca's team then conclude the campaign with a Lancashire double, travelling to Deepdale to face Preston before welcoming Blackburn Rovers to the King Power on the final day.

Ipswich Town fixtures

  • Middlesbrough (H) - 13 April, 15:00
  • Hull City (A) - 27 April, 15:00
  • Coventry City (A) - 30 April, 20:00
  • Huddersfield Town (H) - 4 May, 12:30

By measuring the points-per-game of their remaining opponents, Ipswich's run-in is better than Leeds' but tougher than Leicester's.

A home match against Middlesbrough presents an opportunity for maximum points, but Kieran McKenna's side then face two tough away assignments in the space of three days against play-off chasing Hull City and Coventry City.

Huddersfield Town await them on the final day, with the Terriers scrapping to preserve their Championship status.

Leeds United fixtures

  • Blackburn Rovers (H) - 13 April, 12:30
  • Middlesbrough (A) - 22 April, 20:00
  • QPR (A) - 27 April, 15:00
  • Southampton (H) - 4 May, 12:30

A home encounter with Blackburn appears a winnable contest for Leeds before a trip to the Riverside to face Middlesbrough, who they have beaten in each of their last three meetings.

The Whites face QPR in their penultimate fixture before a crunch clash with Southampton on the final day, though the Saints are likely to have an eye on the play-offs having slipped out of the automatic promotion picture.
