Leicester City face a tough test when they come up against Peterborough United tomorrow at the Walkers Stadium.
Peterborough themselves have been in impressive form of late, unbeaten in their last 16 games in League One.
Tomorrow's game pits 1st vs 4th, and looks set to provide great entertainment for both sets of fans.
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: 'Peterborough have experienced a lot of success this year by playing attacking football. I fully expect them to be a threat against us. They are on a good run and I am sure they will come here with a lot of confidence.
'We will just have to make sure that we play somewhere near our maximum. That's the most important thing.'
Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson:'We can't afford to lose at Leicester because 10 points would be a massive gap to make up against a team of their quality. We wouldn't be out of the promotion race, but we would have an awful lot to do. We will go there to win like we do every game and I am confident we have the players to achieve it'
Leicester should have Aleksander Tunchev back from injury, as he sat out last week's win at Carlisle.
Aside from this it should be as you were from last week's match.
Matty Fryatt - The striker has been in deadly form so far this season to score 22 goals before Christmas.
Posh have been handed the news that Tom Williams will be fit for the match after his ankle injury.
Russell Martin is niow fully fit after his short spell out on the sidelines.
However, Gabriel Zakuani is out for the tie.
Aaron McLean- Always a threat to the opposition with his sheer pace and eye for goal.
Head to Head: Peterborough have proved to be somewhat of a bogey team to the Foxes in the past, winning 4 out of their only 9 encounters, compared to the Foxes' 3.
Peterborough will equal a club record if they remain unbeaten tomorrow.
Leicester will remain top of the league providing they avoid defeat tomorrow.
Leicester 1-1 Peterborough
Leicester: 26/12/08 - Leeds (A)
Peterborough: 26/12/08 - Millwall (H)
