Leicester to have another worrying wobble

Leicester City will travel to Kent to face League Two outfit Gillingham in the FA Cup third round in desperate need of a boost to save their flagging season in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off at the Priestfield Stadium. For the hosts, it has been a disastrous campaign, but with new ownership and the scent of a competitive fixture in their collective nostrils, it could prove to be another difficult afternoon for the travelling Foxes fans. Read our preview here:

Nils in the blood

American property tycoon Brad Gallinson's acquisition of the club couldn't have been more timely. The Gills were relegated from the third tier last term and remain on course for a dreaded double demotion, having only scored a paltry seven times in 23 games under Neil Harris. However, funds on and off the pitch have already been released, strengthening the structure around the manager and making Crawley Town striker Tom Nichols their first signing of the January transfer window. For now, Harris will persist with a 4-4-2, featuring Hakeeb Adelakun up top and fan favourite Max Ehmer in defence, tasked with stopping Jamie Vardy from getting in behind.

Rodgers and out

Brendan Rodgers is feeling the heat and is also in need of some fresh faces in defence and midfield to stop his side from being so easy to play through. In better times, he might have been tempted to make a host of sweeping changes to the lineup, but he can ill-afford another humiliating defeat and has a host of first team players out injured in any case. Vardy could be joined by Kelechi Ihenacho up top as they seek to get their noses in front early on.

Betting tip

On paper, it ought to be an easy away win for Leicester, but the change of atmosphere at both clubs in recent weeks could give some of the momentum to Gillingham. bet365 have odds of 7.50 for a draw with both teams to score, which would mean a replay and another unwanted fixture for the Foxes.
