King Power Stadium… Monday March 14th… 8pm

Attendance: 31,824

Ticket: £35 – Programme: £3.50

Leicester City, everyone’s second favourite team apparently. Not mine, too much baggage…

It felt refreshing to be approaching a game (particularly away from home) with a cautious amount of optimism, that’s the Rafa Benitez effect I suppose. I still can’t believe he said ‘Yes’, although I don’t expect him to be here beyond the end of the season, even if we do stay up. We’ve been here before…

Pre-Match: Outside The Stadium Formerly Known As The Walkers…

Not a great game, and certainly not a game that either side deserved to win. Leicester did though, through an Okazoki overhead kick following a cut back from an offside Jamie Vardy. We had a pretty good penalty appeal turned down too. A much improved performance from our lot though, in other words, we didn’t fold once we conceded…

I appreciate that the nerves must be getting to Leicester, and sneaking games 1-0 is a good habit to get into, but surely this isn’t the best side in the Premier League…?

First Half: An Offside Jamie Vardy About To Set Up The Only Goal…

A much more positive feeling amongst the away contingent on the night though, just how long it lasts though is very much dependent upon the outcome on Sunday…
