Foxes' tails are up

Now I thought AFCB had a hard game last weekend playing the fourth placed team in the Championship, now they go to try and do even better against third placed Leicester City. The Foxes have not lost at home this season yet and the only team to come away from the King Power Stadium with a point is Leeds Utd, and that was the only game that Leicester have failed to score in at home.

While much of the talk in the division has been about Burnley and QPR, Leicester have been consistently collecting the points home and away, sneaking under the radar and while they don't win many games by more than the odd goal, they have scored the same amount of goals as Bournemouth - 19.

Leicester will come into the game on the back of a 2:1 win at home to Huddersfield. That game had two own goals in it while Jamie Vardy's strike shows that they have a forward who has maybe come back to form at the wrong time for AFCB. Leicester managed 21 shots in that game and seven were on target. Some of those will have come from David Nugent, Portsmouth's former dangerman. Nugent is the regular penalty taker as well and already has seven goals to his name this season.

One of the team's new signings this season has been Blackpool's former striker, Gary Taylor-Fletcher who has a one-year deal at Leicester City. He could be back into contention for this game.

At the back there is Paul Konchesky who has applied himself at Premiership level for most of his career at West Ham, Fulham and Liverpool. He is supported by Kasper Schmeichel in goal who has been tipped as one of the best young keepers in the Championship. Doncaster benefited from a rare mistake from Kasper but more often then not Schmeichel has been a hard keeper to beat. Leicester's captain is Wes Morgan who is a centre back was their player of the year last season and has already been winning much praise this season from manager Nigel Pearson. Wes joined the Foxes in January 2012 from near rivals Nottingham Forest.
