Leicester vs Cardiff: This Season
Leicester and Cardiff have played each other on three seperate occassions this season, with the extra fixture arriving in the form of the League Cup.
30th March 2010
Cardiff 2-1 Leicester
McCormack (10), Whittingham (45) - Howard (52)
Cardiff: Marshall, Gyepes, Quinn, Kennedy (Capaldi 60), Rae, Whittingham, McPhail, Burke, Blake (Matthews 35), Etuhu (Feeney 65), McCormack
Leicester: Weale, Solano, Morrison, Hobbs, Neilson (Adams 83), King, Wellens, Spearing, N'Guessan (Howard 46), Waghorn (Vaughan 69), Gallagher
Cardiff secured all three points at the Cardiff City Stadium with first half goals from Ross McCormack and Peter Whittingham.
Leicester threatened a second half fightback with an early goal from Steve Howard, after Martyn Waghorn had an effort shamefully disallowed despite the ball having cleared the line.
Gabor Gyepes was sent off for a cynical challenge on James Vaughan with half an hour remaining, but Cardiff held on to condemn Leicester to what was then a third straight defeat.
13th March 2010
Leicester 1-0 Cardiff
Leicester: Weale, Morrison, Hobbs, Bruce (Solano 35), Berner, King, Oakley (Vaughan 63), Wellens, Gallagher, Waghorn (Howard 77), Dyer
Cardiff: Marshall, McNaughton, Gerrard, Kennedy, Whittingham, McPhail, Burke, Blake, Matthews (Rae 71), Bothroyd, McCormack
Martyn Waghorn's first half finish was enough for Leicester to take control of proceedings in the play-offs in a tight affair at the Walkers Stadium.
At the time the victory stretched City's unbeaten home record to eight matches, whilst meaning that Cardiff had only won one of their last six fixtures.
23rd January 2010
Cardiff 4-2 Leicester (League Cup)
Bothroyd (17), Whittingham (71), Burke (90), McCormack (90) - Morrison (34), N'Guessan (39)
Cardiff: Marshall, Quinn (Burke 61), Hudson, Gerrard, Kennedy, Whittingham, Ledley, Blake, Chopra, Bothroyd, McCormack
Leicester: Weale, Morrison, Brown, Hobbs, McGivern, Oakley, Wellens, Gallagher, N'Guessan, Waghorn (Fryatt 82), Kermorgant
Two late goals handed Cardiff victory in Wales, knocking Leicester out of the League Cup in the process. Chris Burke and Ross McCormack both struck in stoppage time to deal a cruel blow to Leicester who had played well in large parts of the game.
Michael Morrison and Dany N'Guessan had overturned Jay Bothroyd's early srike, but Peter Whittingham levelled things up with twenty minutes remaining to set up a grandstand finish for Dave Jones' side.
