LEICESTER looked superb in beating Norwich in the FA Cup at the weekend but can they follow up with victory at Derby?

Nigel Pearson's men are steadily improving but need a run of wins to have any chance of making the play-offs which must be their aim.

Problem is Leicester haven't been able to put a consistent run together despite blowing away Southampton at St Mary's and winning at Carrow Road. and their last away game in the Championship resulted in defeat at Watford.

However, against a side that's lost it's way and has been defeated in four of their last five without scoring I'm hoping Leicester can produce another decent display. The are 11-8 with Coral.

Derby have taken just two points from their last five Championship matches and were hammered 4-0 by Southampton on Saturday. Bookies don't fancy the Rams at all and BetVictor make them 5-2 despite enjoying home advantage.

Like all derbies it could be close but the visitors should have the edge and are 10-3 at bet365 to nick it by a one-goal margin.

Experienced hitman Dave Nugent has netted three in Leicester's last two and is worth a look at 6-1 with Stan James to break the deadlock. He is 2-1  to net at any time.

You can have the same prices on team-mate Jermain Beckford if you see him as an alternative.
