'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Nearly, but not quite

It's coming up to that time now. Do or die, now or never, life or death.

Well OK, it's not, but for those of us who can't take any more of this agony it's pretty damn close.

For Leicester City this weekend will be, once again, absolutely crucial in the play-off race, with relegation-threatened Watford standing in their way at the Walkers on Saturday.

With three matches to play and a four point cushion over seventh placed Blackpool, City's destiny lies very much in their own hands, as it has for the majority of the season in fact.

In a wonderfully consistent season, Nigel Pearson's side have barely featured outside of the play-off places, even daring to break into the top two in the early stages of the campaign.

Two disappointing drops in form may have sent things back to reality, but whatever happens from here this really will have been an incredible season from start to finish.

A play-off place at the beginning of the season was near-on unthinkable, with most fans simply happy to accept a stress-free season whereby we would sail away to a comfortable mid-table finish. And that would have been successful.

But this is the Championship, where anything can happen. Many so-called unfashionable teams have proved that the drive from the lower depths of obscurity to Premier League football are more than achievable, and we are simply the latest to dare to dream.

Swansea have enjoyed another successful season, hoping to go one step further this season by holding down their current play-off spot. Ian Holloway's Blackpool have once again defied the expectations of all to put themselves within close reach.

It should be reminded however, that there is still a lot of work to do. Three points against Watford would undoubtedly leave City in a comfortable position in the table with two matches to go, even able to secure a play-off position on the day should other results go in their favour.

But Malky Mackay's side have important agendas of their own at the other end of the table, and certainly won't lie down easily.

Over to you again boys...
