The Championship's automatic promotion race took another twist on Monday afternoon after Leicester City took care of business against Norwich City. The Foxes looked as though they would continue their disappointing form before springing to life and pulling off a home comeback win.

Leicester's win means the pressure is back on the other promotion-chasing teams across Easter Monday, and two of those teams face each other, with Ipswich Town taking on Southampton. Defeat for the Saints in that one may just be the final nail in their coffin as far as automatic promotion is concerned, given they already need to win both of their games in hand to stand a chance, and one of those is against Leicester.
