Leeds United vs Leicester City - preview

After Leicester's 1-1 draw at the weekend, a bit of a disappointment really but a fair result, they travel to Elland Road for the second time this season.  Last time, a Carling Cup match, it resulted in a win for the Foxes, with Wellens slotting in and Howard scoring a last minute penalty in reply to David Somma's great header.  This time round will be different, as Leicester found out comparing the League Cup and league matches they played with Portsmouth: won 2-1 and lost 1-6.

I think Leicester will make this their first away league win of the season, dragging themselves out of the relegation zone and firmly into the Sven era.  The two loan signings in defence and the imminent arrival of Darius Vassell will keep up spirits and I'm predicting a copy of last time, 1-2 to the Foxes.
