A Day Out in Yorkshire: Barnsley vs Leicester City Preview

So this weekend I'm spending a couple of days with the in-laws, who live a bus ride away from Barnsley which just so happens to be where Leicester City are playing.  Hence, I have my tickets and am looking forward to seeing a good match.

After a good win against Preston last weekend, which we should have won by more, Leicester travel to Barnsley in hope of their first back to back wins of the season.  Both teams are having a similar season by this point, although the beginning couldn't have been much more different, Barnsley slipping and Leicester climbing.

Most exciting is the possible debut of Darius Vassell, who now has clearance to play.  Whether he starts or comes off the bench, he will receive a great reception and it will be interesting to see where he fits in and how well he does.  My prediction is 1-2, a Leicester win with Waghorn and Vassell scoring.
