Match Preview: Leicester City vs Nottingham Forest

Nigel Pearson celebrates a year back in charge of the Foxes with the third visit of Nottingham Forest in 2012.

The first was Leicester’s biggest win over the Reds since 1913. The second was, statistically at least, the most boring match ever played at the King Power Stadium.

The third is likely to be another game where defences are the focus. Leicester, who sport the best home defence in the Championship, will face a Forest side who have the fourth strongest back line on the road.

Recently Leicester have dominated these matches. The last four meetings between these two at the King Power Stadium have produced an aggregate score of 8-0 to the Foxes. But Leicester’s defensive dominance will be tested by severe shortages in personnel.

Both sides were involved in goalless draws in midweek. If it’s goalless at the break there’s reason for the Foxes to be pleased, they haven’t lost the second half of any Championship match this season.

Without a win in three, City need to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later. Leicester boast the Championship’s best record against other sides in the top half. It would be a good time for that record continue.
