So the gap is 6 points with Leicester having a game in hand as well.
Today Leicester face Huddersfield at The Walkers Stadium while MK Dons are not playing. So hopefully come 4.55pm we could be 9 points ahead of 2nd place.
Nigel Pearson tells of a confident squad.
He said: "They (the players) have set the standards themselves while I am always looking over my shoulder again for a dip. That is something I am always aware of.
"Talk to the players and you will find there is a lot of confidence about them, which is good, but it is a fine line.
"You have to keep them on the straight and narrow, and every game we play is a potential slip.
"We are just round the corner from a performance which is below par and we have got to make sure that the level stays at the highest standard."
