Champions Leicester will receive their League One trophy in front of a sell-out crowd on Friday evening when Scunthorpe United are the visitors to the Walkers Stadium.
The Foxes technically have nothing but pride to play for after confirming their champions status at Southend last weekend, unlike visitors Scunthorpe who are very much battling for a play-off place with three games remaining.
A win for the Irons would fire them back into the final play-off spot, overtaking Tranmere in the process.
The last time the two sides met, Scunthorpe were top of the table with Leicester second. Goals from Lloyd Dyer and Andy King handed the Foxes a 2-1 win, and since then Nigel Pearson's have never looked back.
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: 'It's a celebration - we are champions. But it's important that we get the balance right and do the job properly as our two remaining fixtures have an impact at both ends of the table.
We have a moral obligation to make sure we do things correctly both for ourselves and for other teams involved in the play-off fight and the relegation fight'.
Leicester should welcome back striker Steve Howard, who missed Leicester's promotion party at Southend through illness. Paul Dickov is likely to be the man to make way.
Nigel Pearson could decide to hand a start to Astrit Ajdarevic to take a closer look at the on-loan Liverpool midfielder.
Scored that vital winner at Glanford Park earlier in the season to fire the Foxes to the top of the league, and is now due a goal. Always a threat from anywhere on the pitch, the young midfielder has shone for Leicester in League One this season.
Scunthorpe's leaky defence could be helped with the return of centre back Andy Crosby.
Kenny Milne and Marcus Williams are both out of contention after missing training on Thursday.
A hugely impressive 30 goals in all competetions this season says it all for the Scunthorpe striker. Along with the equally impressive Paul Hayes up front for the Irons, Hooper has proven how lethal he can be this season.

Scunthorpe: Gary Hooper (30)
