A former Leicester City star, who won the Premier League title with the Foxes, has forecasted further Championship drama for the east Midlands club and their tier two rivals for promotion Ipswich Town and Leeds United. In addition to covering this topic, FoL briefly preview the Millwall tie, and provide details for supporters.

Christian Fuchs isn't shy with his Leicester opinions, and is definitely qualified to give them. The Austrian thanked Coventry City for doing LCFC a recent favour by beating Leeds. Furthermore, the former Fox has been speaking about what's turning into an interesting race to return to the EPL ready for the 2024/25 campaign:

"It's such an interesting race for promotion. A week or two ago, I was sitting here talking about what Leicester needed to do to get back to winning ways, and how winning games at this stage is crucial. Coventry and Norwich have done Leicester a tremendous favour by winning against Leeds and Ipswich.

What you saw in the stadium was a dominant performance from Leicester over Birmingham. Yes they scored in the dying minutes, but that was not by luck. This was the Leicester we knew for the whole season. Games come thick and fast, already, today, the table could look different but I really believe there is more drama to come in the last couple of games when the nerves start kicking in."

A look ahead at Millwall vs Leicester City: is the match on television? What is the kick-off time and is there a live stream? Statistics, recent meetings and more, including what Foxes head coach Enzo Maresca has told the media

First of all, before Leicester's clash with Millwall begins, let's hear what Maresca had to say. OK, the Italian in charge on Filbert Way has confirmed that he will rotate his starting lineup. Unfortunately due to a busy schedule, the east Midlands side have been forced to compete in a trio of contests over just one week.

The 44-year-old believes that he can manage the energy of the squad by using some peripheral members of the roster. Too many games in a short period is clearly not beneficial to finely honed athletes such as footballers. We see this with an increasing amount of season-affecting injuries in the modern game. Rant over.

Moving on to things on the pitch now, how have recent matches between LCFC and the Lions played out? Well, City are given a 57 percent chance or victory on Tuesday evening. This advantage is gauged by severely contrasting positions in the Championship table. Not to mention the recent clashes: the King Power outfit were triumphant in three of the past four games against Millwall. I certainly predict another City victory in south London this week.

Finally, coverage on TV and online. Just over 2,000 away fans at The Den will see the game start at 7:45pm. Thankfully, fans at home, at friends' places, or in the pub can watch it live via Sky Sports. Incidentally, Leeds versus Sunderland will also be available on Sky, for those in the Blue Army wanting to keep an eye on that one. See the Red Button or the Sky Sports App for further options and information.
