Leicester City are back in the play-off places thanks to their 3-2 win over Bolton on Tuesday night – but can they stay there? Natalie Derham and Tom Styles asked people in Leicester city centre what they thought. Let us know what you think City's chances are. Vote in the poll at the top right of this page and leave you comments below.
Jack Hardy, 20, Market trader, Leicester "I don't think we will make it. We're not playing well enough and we're not consistent. "I'd like us to go up but I can't see it happening."Dave Chatwani, 50, worker, Oadby "We'll stick it now. We have a good chance against Crystal Palace on Saturday. "We've sold more shirts this morning than normal so it's clear everyone is behind the team."Courtney Thema, 17, student, Leicester "There's a high chance of being promoted. It depends on how our opponents for the next few games are playing and how Leicester play. If they make it to the play-offs they've got a pretty good chance."Tom Felch, 20, trader, New Parks "They've got enough to get promotion. They've got a lot of potential this team. I was unsure on how we'd do but after the win against Bolton I'm quite confident."Josh Marvin, 19, student, Broughton Astley "It would be really nice if they did go up but I don't see it happening. Their form this season hasn't been good enough."Rebecca Hovell, 20, student, Braunstone "I don't think they will make the play-offs. The same thing happened last year – they started out well then it all fell apart. "They are good enough but it depends on how other results go."Trevor Mills, 64, Age UK, Leicester "I don't think they will make it. They've pushed their luck too far this season. They had a really good start and it seems like they've just switched off. They wouldn't last five minutes in the Premiership."Paul Sanderson, 36, retail assistant, Loughborough "It'll be very difficult with the teams around us all pushing really hard. Our destiny is in our own hands now. The chance is there, we've just got to go for it."Tracy Brown, 49, traffic patroller, Markfield "It's borderline. Unfortunately, they're unable to be consistent. I think if we do make the play-offs we'll go all the way."Maria Scriven, 29, manager, Blaby "If we keep the form from Tuesday, we could. Hopefully, if we do get there, we will go all the way to the final. If that happens I think we have a good chance at promotion."Chris Allcock, 24, student, Braunstone "I'm still on the fence. Our defence seems a little unsure and we've leaked a few silly goals. But Tuesday night was a good stepping stone and you can't ask for more than a win."Paul Urquhart, 34, unemployed, Evington "I would love to see City go up as I think it would be great for the city in general. It would create interest in the city and lift everyone's spirit. Not to mention it would help boost the pubs."Alistair Reid, 51, retired, Leicester "It all comes down to Palace. We've got to beat them. Leicester belong in the Premiership. Dyer makes a difference and it looks like Schlupp is starting to fire at the right time."
