Gray's Leicester prediction

Former Sunderland star Micky Gray believes Leicester will run away with top spot and promotion despite back-to-back defeats, allowing the likes of Leeds to close the gap to the top two.

“Well, If I’m brutally honest with you, I think Leicester are going to run away with it,” Gray told The Sunderland Echo. “They are the standout team this season, no question about it and they have Premier League experience and Premier League players. I think there are a batch of teams just underneath them: Ipswich Town, Leeds United and Southampton now, who look as if they are making a push."

Leeds men in action

Two Leeds stars featured for Wales in a frustrating away draw with Armenia on Saturday. Ethan Ampadu played a full game in midfield, while Dan James was brought off the bench in the second half. Wales went behind early in the game but drew level thanks to an own goal in stoppage time of the first half.

Robert Page's men were involved in an end-to-end scramble with both teams needing the win, but they had to settle for a draw. Wales may now slip behind Croatia, who play later on Saturday, in the fight for second place, with one game remaining. The two teams went into the last two games level on points with Wales having the head-to-head advantage. Croatia play Latvia away on Saturday and Armenia at home next week, while Wales now have to get a result against Turkey at home. Armernia are now out, while Turkey have qualified.
