No-one seems to be giving Leicester City much chance of winning against Championship League leaders, Reading at the Majedski Stadium today, not least the bookies.

Fox Betting quote 6-1 against a City win with Reading a heavily weighted odds-on 4/9 to be victors.

Reading have played 25 games this season, head the table by nine points, beat Wolves 2-0 away on Boxing Day and have lost once so far in the League – on the opening day.

Manager Steve Coppell side has 19 wins so the bookies are pretty confident of their forecasts.

But City manager Craig Levein believes that ‘being underdogs might suit us’

He points to Leicester’s previous results and said ‘we’ve actually done quite well against the better sides.’

Perhaps tempting for City fans is the prospect of a 2-0 Leicester win and Hume scoring first at 125/1, a 2-1 win to Leicester and Hume scoring first at 100/1 and Joe Gudjonsson to score first at 18/1.

Kick-off is at 8-00pm.
