Two losses in a row were followed by two successive draws and Leicester City suddenly found themselves slipping from the top of Championship table just as quickly they managed to reach the summit.
However, a 6-0 demolition job on Ipswich Town was swiftly backed up by a comfortable 2-0 success at Sheffield Wednesday and it all looks sweet again in the Leicester ranks.
The Foxes are currently third in the table, four points behind leaders Cardiff City as they make the trip north to face Leeds United this evening.
For the Whites, Saturday was the first time their faithful fans have had the chance to celebrate a victory in eight games and given that their 2-1 triumph came against then table toppers Crystal Palace, it was made even sweeter.
Boss Neil Warnock will hope that success revitalises his side, but they still go into Tuesday night’s fixture as 9/4 outsiders in bwin’s 3Way market as a result of their dreadful form prior to their win at the weekend.
I am sure everyone involved with the club would have hoped that a promotion push could ensue this season, but it will take a huge change in fortunes if the Whites are to finish in the top six now.
In fairness, although they currently sit in 16th place, Leeds are two points closer to the play-off spots than the relegation zone, so they will not be looking over their shoulders just yet despite their precarious position.
So far this season Nigel Pearson’s men have won three games on the road, scoring exactly two goals on all three occasions. Two of those victories ended in 2-0 wins, so a punt on this outcome could be the way forward.
The 2-0 scoreline in favour of the visitors is priced at 21/2 and new customers who use the free £20 bet they receive for registering with bwin on a 2-0 Leicester win will see their account credited with £230 if it proves successful.
For punters who want to back the draw when Leicester travel to Elland Road, the stalemate is available at odds of 12/5, but I will stick to my guns and predict that the Foxes can come out on top and 11/10 for a Leicester win looks great value.
