It is a case of fourth against third at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Saturday, when Wasps host the Leicester Tigers in Round 16 of the Aviva premiership. After a run of six successive victories in the Premiership, Wasps fell to a 10-13 defeat at Kingsholm last weekend against Gloucester. That result has left them with a precarious two point advantage over the Northampton Saints, who are the club immediately behind them in the standings. The Tigers have secured bonus point victories in each of their last two fixtures, against the Exeter Chiefs and London Irish, following a run of three successive losses. The first time that they claimed 10 out of a possible 10 points, for the first time since the end of the 2013/14 season.

If the Leicester Tigers complete a season's double against London Wasps on Saturday, having won early in the season at Welford Road by 24-16, it will be just a second win on the road in 2016. The previous victory coming away to Gloucester at the end of January by just 19-18. Although Wasps are the form club in the tournament, despite last weekend's reverse, having secured 23 out of 30 points over the last six matches, and have not lost at the Ricoh in any tournament this calendar year, they are on a run of four consecutive losses to the Tigers, stretching back to October 2013, when Wasps won the game at Adams Park by 22-12.

Possibly the biggest match of the Premiership weekend takes place at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday, when Wasps play the Leicester Tigers. Wasps are in sixth place, but are just three points adrift of fourth place Tigers, so a home victory would see Leicester slip out of the play-off positions with just one week of the regular season remaining. Whether a Wasp win would see them end the weekend in the top four, would depend on Exeter Chief's result at Saracens on Sunday. Advanced ticket sales suggest that the match may set a record attendance for a Premiership game outside of Twickenham or Wembley, outstripping the 28, 254 who watched Wasps first Aviva Premiership game at the Ricoh earlier in the season. Both clubs are in good form going into Saturday's contest, with London Wasps having won their last two Premiership fixtures against London Welsh and Exeter Chiefs, and being able to boast the best home record of the 12 clubs in the competition, with just a solitary defeat on home soil this season.

The Tigers meanwhile have lost just once in their last seven Aviva fixtures, which came at Saracens last month, and only Bath and Northampton Saints have fared better on the road this season.

At first glance, a record of three wins from their last four matches would appear to suggest that London Wasps are a side that is very much in form. However, two of those victories have come in the Amlin Challenge Cup, against French sides, who are notorious for giving the competition less than their most serious attention in the early stages. Their form in the Aviva Premiership is much less convincing, with just a single victory to their name so far, at home to rock bottom Worcester Warriors in round 4 by 32-16. In fact, that is the only success that they have registered in the league in their last 12 matches. Leicester, who set such high standards amongst the English club sides, are currently sitting third in the table, and their supporters are a little impatient for the side to be its usual dominant self. However, the truth of the statistics is that the Tigers have lost just once in the Premiership since last April, when Bath lowered their colors at the Rack in a pulsating match by 27-20 in round 2.

Despite Wasps struggles over the past few seasons, the last 10 encounters between the sides, going back to September 2008, has seen the home side victorious on each occasion, and you have to go right back to September 2007 to find the last time that the Leicester Tigers won at Adams Park.
