With eleven games to go, Leicester sit top of the Championship with eighty points - with a maximum points tally of 113 still possible.
However, Leicester don't face an easy run in with Burnley, Wigan, QPR, Brighton and Reading still to play. They currently sit three points behind Reading's 2005-06 season after the same number of games. The Royals only dropped ten more points until the end of the season, giving Leicester a difficult task.
Using the points per game method (2.29 points awarded for each game), Leicester will end up on 105 points. But the potential results may give more answers:
Leicester's final eleven games are:
- Blackburn (A) - currently 10th
- Yeovil (H) - 23rd
- Burnley (A) - 2nd
- Wigan (A) - 5th
- Sheff Wed (H) - 14th
- Brighton (H) - 8th
- Reading (A) - 7th
- QPR (H) - 4th
- Bolton (A) - 17th
- Huddersfield (A) - 16th
- Doncaster (H) - 20th
|Sheff Wed||Leicester win||89||92 (P)|
|Brighton||Leicester win||92||95 (C)|
|Bolton||Leicester win||97||102 (C)|
|Huddersfield||Leicester win||100||103 (C)|
My predictions show that Leicester will fall short by four points, but don't rule the Foxes out. Especially as form can change quickly (just look at QPR).
Currently, no bookmaker is taking bets on Leicester to break the record, but it could still happen.
