'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Howard relishing Leeds clash

Leicester striker Steve Howard has admitted he is relishing the prospect of Leeds United's trip to the Walkers Stadium.

Howard has enjoyed success against Simon Grayson's side so far this season, scoring twice in Leicester's two matches at Elland Road this campaign.

The striker's late penalty proved decisive to knock Leeds out of the Carling Cup, while another strike in City's league victory helped seal the club's first away victory of the season.

And Howard insists that tomorrow's opponents' style of play only suits City.

"I think the way they play suits us and Leeds have always been a fabulous club and you really get up for these contests," he said.

"They are always a tough team to play and you do raise your game.

Howard famously headed a late winner against the Yorkshire outfit when the two sides were in League One to all but secure City's promotion from the division.

"We've got a good record against them already this season. We've played up there twice and we battered them both times," he added.

With money likely to be spent at will when the January transfer window opens next week, Howard knows he faces a battle to stay in and around the first team in the coming months.

"The new owners have got a lot of money to spend and I'm sure we will see new players come in, perhaps in my position, so I need to stand up and be counted and try to get as much pitch-time as possible."
