LUFC - Leicester v Leeds preview

Leeds travel to Leicester City for a lunch time kick off in front of the live Sky TV cameras on Easter Monday.

Form

Leicester
The Foxes will go into the game knowing that three points will leave them on the verge of promotion back to the Championship at the first attempt.

They have had something of a wobble in recent weeks but got back to winning ways on Saturday when they came from behind to beat lowly Hereford United away.

Last time out at home they drew 2-2 with Carlisle United

Leeds
The Whites recorded their ninth consecutive home win on Saturday when beating Stockport County 1-0.
Their problem all season as been their away form. They thought they had solved this after winning two consecutive games away and were leading 2-0 at Leyton Orient last Tuesday night with the O`S down to ten men, they somehow managed to throw the two goal lead away and had to be happy with a draw in the end.
That result almost guarantees they will finish no higher than in a play off position.

History

Leeds have played no other clubs more times than they have played Leicester in their history.
The two clubs have met on 112 occasions with 57 of these being at Leicester.
Leicester have the advantage at home with 25 wins to Leeds 14 and 18 being drawn.

Leeds have made one previous trip to The Walker Stadium in 2006/07, Robbie Blake gave Leeds to lead on the stroke of half time with a twenty yard shot. There was still time for Leicester to equalise before the break through Iain Hume and that`s how the game finished.

The two clubs met on Boxing Day at Elland Road in Simon Grayson`s first game in charge for Leeds, Matt Oakley thought he had gained the visitors all three points until Robert Snodgrass equalised in the last minute for Leeds.
