Down but not out

Down but not out

With only four games of the Championship season left, Leicester still hold their play-off fate very much in their own hands.

Monday's relieving (and resounding) victory over QPR has done much to settle the nerves ahead of another key match at relegated Peterborough, finally relieved of the inevitable doom of the Championship.

But while Posh may be condemned to playing their football back in League One next season, their part in the remainder of the season remains integral.

For City and their fellow promotion hopefuls, Peterborough could be the mischievous banana skins to potentially de-rail an entire campaign's work.

Key Posh remaining fixtures:

Leicester (H) - 10th April

Reading (A) - 17th April

Blackpool (H) - 24th April

Reading still possess an excellent chance at making the play-offs should they win their two games in hand, beating Leicester themselves on their own patch last month. Their form of late has been nothing short of spectacular, perfect timing some would say.

But it is Blackpool who have proved a particular thorn in City's plight for the top flight, on current form looking extremely strong in their attempts to chase down the precarious one-point advantage that the Foxes hold over Ian Holloway's men.

All three sides will undoubtedly feel as though they should walk away with all the points from Gary Johnson's side, but with their now-confirmed status as relegation fodder, the pressure is well and truly off.

Down and silenced for now, Peterborough have not quite bellowed their final swan song just yet.
