The Foxes travel to Brighton & Hove Albion tomorrow knowing that only a win will see them climb back into the play-off places.
A shocking run of just one win in the last 11 matches has unravelled all the hard work that Nigel Pearson's team had put in earlier in the campaign and their promotion push is in desperate need of a revival.
And, if tabloid speculation is to be believed, that revival may come in the form of a change of management.
Indeed, there will certainly be more at stake in tomorrow's trip to Brighton than simply three points, for Pearson's future may well depend on it.
The City boss is keeping a level head, and when asked if his relationship with the club's Thai owners had run its course, he replied: 'I have had contact and they are good people and have invested an awful lot in this club, and that is not just finances.
"I am in contact with my bosses and I know my own situation and I also know they have been very supportive this season. What we discuss behind closed doors needs to remain there.
"I don't think there is any need for me to respond to any speculation in the media apart from to say that all I will be doing - along with the players - is to make sure we finish the season well. And if we do that, then maybe some of the speculation might stop."
Whilst a win tomorrow might go some way to silencing the rumours, we can only hope that Pearson's men have been able to maintain their focus ahead of what is virtually a play-off decider at the Amex Stadium tomorrow.
