Leicester Preview

The two sides met just three weeks ago when, despite battering the Foxes the Yellows were unable to find a way passed mild-mannered keeper Ben Alnwick (pictured left attempting to make sweet love to Darel Russell) in the Leicester goal.

A few facts…

League Position: Leicester 20th, Norwich 13th.

Last Meeting: 19th January 2008 – Norwich 0 Leicester 0.

Last Meeting at Walkers Stadium: 14th April 2007 – Leicester 1 Norwich 2.

Top Goalscorer: Leicester – Hume (6), Norwich – Cureton (8).

Recently Played for Both Clubs: Dion Dublin, Darren Eadie, Darren Kenton, Trevor Benjamin, Elvis Hammond, Iwan Roberts.

Fascinating Fact: Norwich are unbeaten in their last seven visits to Leicester, and will be backed by the biggest away crowd of the season – all 3,000 tickets available to Canary supporters have been sold.

My Prediction: Roeder’s men will be desperate to put right the 0-0 draw of three weeks ago, and I firmly expect the unbeaten run to be extended to fourteen. 1-0 Norwich.
