Leicester City - Scunthorpe Utd.

Two more rounds in League One. Almost everything is known. It is left to see who will be the second direct promoted team, Peterborough Utd., or MK Dons and who will grab the 6th place for play-off, Tranmere Rovers or Scunthorpe Utd.. The champion is Leicester, definitely became with away win in Southend 2-0. Entire season Foxes have been saying they don't belong in League One, now their ambition grows. Chairman Milan Mandaric told this is just the beginning and Premier League isn't a dream. Players are full of confidence, fans are in ecstasy. Significant characteristic of their performance this season is they never lack in motivation, especially when they play against the opponent who is worthy of their respect. Scunthorpe, for example. Southend, Leeds (away, 1-0), or Millwall (1-0 away). At home, they're superior, with just one defeat, conceding 14 goals in 22 games, far best the defence in the league and second best attack (MK Dons scored two times more). Striker Steve Howard is recovered from a virus, returned to training on Wednesday and should figure. 

With two consecutive home defeats (Huddersfield Town 1-2 and MK Dons 0-1), visitors fell below the play-off line. 6th Tranmere Rovers have a point (and a game) more. At the last round (Northampton Town away, 3-3) they displayed solid performance, but thankfully to some silly mistakes by the defence line, managed to concede three times from relegation contender. Now, they have three games to save the season. They probable couldn't wish the worse opponent, than today's. Champion on their own ground! First-team coach Andy Crosby could return after recovering from a stomach bug. Sam Togwell comes back after suspension and Joseph Mills could be restored after being on the bench midweek. 

Scunthorpe has no other way, than to attack the champions and try to take off the smiles from their faces. I think they only can make them angry. Expekt offers 2.15 for a home win and that's fine for me. And a gamble bet on 1-1 ht/ft.
