Premier League

The Premier League season is entering the final stretch and it is set up for a fascinating finale. After an incredible midweek round of fixtures Leicester are three points clear at the top after it appeared they may be overtaken given that they only managed a two all draw at home to West Brom. However, with nearest challengers Spurs losing at West Ham, third placed Arsenal losing at home to Swansea and fourth place Man City being thoroughly beaten three nil Anfield by Liverpool, it turned out to be a great few days for Claudio Ranieri's men.

The North London derby is always a big game but this is the first one that I can remember that can go a long way to deciding who challenges for the title. If Arsenal lose this then they are all but out of the race, however a win keeps them just about in with a chance, especially if Leicester fail to win away to Watford. I think it will be a cagey affair as usual but have a feeling there will be plenty of goals because of this. Petr Cech is injured and misses this match which is a big blow for the Gunners. Spurs haven't looked great in their past couple of games either so I can see this match finishing in a high scoring draw.

As previously mentioned, Leicester face the tough task of a visit to Watford and given their current form, I can see them struggling to get anything at all from this match. If this does happen, it will mean it's even tighter at the top and the final nine games will leave everything to play for.


15:10 Doncaster

Yes I Did for Harry Skelton has won three of his last four starts and hasn't been out of the first three on his six starts to date. His one try in Listed company ended in a pretty comprehensive defeat, however that was on very heavy going at Haydock and he definitely wants it soft at worst. He showed last time out that he also appreciates a distance such as today's, so all in all I think he is going to be tough to get past here today and looks a good bet.
