Leicester City really need a win right now, following on from a fairly damning defeat to bottom of the table Norwich. It’s a good time to be facing lower league opposition in the cup. The Foxes have already beaten two Championship sides to get this far.

Birmingham City find themselves 15th in the league after a run of four straight draws. They also drew their last two in the cup, needing a replay and penalties to get past League One Coventry in the last round.
