Foxes lose again and drop out of playoffs zone

8:35 am on 31 March 2013

The winless streak continues for the All Whites striker Chris Wood's Leicester City in England's Football League Championship, with a 1-0 home defeat to London side Millwall putting the Foxes' playoff hopes at risk.

Wes Morgan was sent off early on for Leicester, and combined with fifth-placed Nottingham Forest drawing 1-1 with Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday, Wood and his team have dropped out of the top-six playoff zone - and they haven't won in six games now.

In other Championship matches, leaders Cardiff lost 2-1 at Peterborough, second placed Hull drew nil-all at Huddersfield, fourth-placed Crystal Palace were humbled 4-0 at home by Birmingham City - their first home defeat since the opening day of the season - while Derby County also thrashed visitors Bristol City 3-0.

Third-placed Watford drew 3-3 at home to Burnley.

Ipswich Town beat Leeds United 3-0 to inch further clear of the relegation zone while Wolverhampton Wanderers remain in the bottom three, despite Wolves repelling Middlesbrough 3-2.
