He took over with Notts County deep in relegation trouble, but his side now need just a draw to stay in League One.

If they fail to get the victory they could potentially be relegated if other results go against them.

A draw would almost definitely be enough to secure their position in League One next season, again, depending on results from Tranmere and Crewe's matches.

Can Leicester do Birmingham a favour by beating Doncaster?

As the Championship football season comes to an end tomorrow, Leicester City can afford to relax if they want to as their job is already done.

Nigel Pearson's side have been pretty much flawless all season with only six defeats from 45 matches.

They secured both automatic promotion and the league title early. A win for them tomorrow would mean they finish the season with 102 points.

And that win, if it comes, would also do Birmingham City a favour if they get a draw away at Bolton Wanderers.

If the Blues draw and Leicester beat Doncaster they will stay in the Championship on goal difference.

It will be a tough watch for many come 12:15 tomorrow as the season comes down to the wire.
