Foxes to Fell the Trees?

There's been some big derbies this weekend, from the Old Farm Derby (Norwich vs Ipswich) to El Classico (Barcalona vs Real Madrid).  But the biggest of them all surely comes on Monday night as Leicester City take on Nottingham Forest, live on SKY, from the Walkers Stadium.

Last season the shares were sure spoilt between the two, Forest humiliating Leicester with a 5-1 home win and Leicester returning the favour by winning 3-0 back at the Walkers.  This season both teams will look a little bit different; more true for the Foxes though.  Two changes in management and plenty of new players have arrived at Leicester, most recently Roman Bednar and Chris Kirkland, and Forest have strengthened with Aaron Ramsey and Marcus Tudgay arriving.

It will be interesting to see how the new loanees fit in but also to see how the Foxes bounce back after a bad defeat last weekend.  All this in front of the cameras should make to be a good match.  I'm going for a close 2-1 win for Leicester but it could really go either way...
