Leicester City Championship Title Odds: Foxes still favourites despite Millwall setback

Leicester City are 8/15 favourites to win the Championship title, despite succumbing to a 1-0 defeat against struggling Millwall at The Den on Tuesday.

Ryan Longman's stunning second half strike condemned the Foxes to defeat and secured Millwall with a vital three points in their quest for survival.

Leicester's slip-up presented Leeds United with an opportunity to leapfrog them at the top but Daniel Farke's side were held to a frustrating goalless draw at home to Sunderland.

It means Ipswich Town will move to the Championship's summit if they overcome Watford on Wednesday.

Enzo Maresca's outfit appeared to have their title charge back on track following back-to-back successes over Norwich City and Birmingham City, which was the first time they won consecutive matches since mid-February.

An encounter with Millwall, who were lured back into the relegation picture on Saturday after a 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield Town, presented another opportunity for Leicester to edge closer to an immediate Premier League return.

But despite dominating 72% of the ball, the Foxes found clear-cut chances at a premium and were frustrated by a compact and organised Millwall side, who have refortified The Den under Neil Harris.

Longman's unstoppable strike was a well-earned reward for Millwall's resilience but Patson Daka had a gilt-edged opportunity to level the scoring in stoppage time, only to see the ball bounce off his shoulder and wide of the target.

Leicester are now without a win in their last five away matches and desperately need to address their travelling form with a trip to Plymouth Argyle up next.

Two tough home encounters with play-off contenders West Brom and Southampton follow before Leicester round off the campaign with a Lancashire double, the first away at Preston before entertaining Blackburn Rovers.
