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

First Game Ever!

For the first time ever Leicester City will face Macclesfield Town in a competitive match tonight, at the Walkers Stadium.

The two teams meet in the League cup first round for their first ever competitive match. Although they haven’t played each other in a competitive match, they did play each other in a friendly at the beginning of the season.

The friendly game finished 1-0 to Leicester, with Elvis Hammond getting the winner in the last five minutes. Leicester fans will be hoping for another win tonight, with hopefully a few more goals.

Although Leicester fans will be hoping for a comfortable win they have to remember that surprises can happen. For instance Accrington Stanley beating Nottingham Forest 1-0 last night in the League cup.

With this in mind Rob Kelly will have a difficult decision to make tonight. Does he keep the same side that has picked up 4pts in the last two games? Or does he make a few changes to guarantee that key players wont pick up injuries before the league game against Southend on Saturday?

What makes it even more difficult for Kelly is that Whatever team he picks against Macclesfield, Leicester fans will still be expecting a win. Especially as Macclesfield have started the season in very poor form.

Macclesfield Town have only picked up 1 point from 4 games and after their struggle with relegation last season the Macclesfield fans will be hoping their team start to pick up points quickly. We contacted the editor of Vital Macclesfield to ask them what their hopes were for the up coming season

What are your hopes for this season?

An improvement on last season for a start! Hopefully we can put the recent mess with the FA fine behind us and have a season with fewer injuries to key players. Not being involved in the relegation fight would be a damn good start but all Macclesfield fans are keen to get back to the form of two years ago that saw us to the play-offs.

Who is your most important player?

Hard to say because we’ve had quite a few changes. Martin Bullock is probably our key creative outlet but the goals from Heath, Robinson and McNeil will obviously be vital.
