Know thy enemy

After the disappointment of throwing away a possible point against West Brom, Leicester fans will be looking for the team to pick themselves back up and get all three points when they play Hull City tonight at the Walkers Stadium.

Leicester have won their last two games at home and fans will be hoping to make it a hat-trick of wins when the Tigers come to visit.

This fixture between the two sides last season saw 5 goals, with Leicester eventually winning 3-2. The winning goal was scored by Joey Gudjonsson, who managed to score from inside his own half.

The game last season was also given some added spice, due to the fact it was the return of Peter Taylor. Many Leicester fans blamed Taylor for the club being relegated from the Premiership and going into administration.

Taylor has sinced moved onto Crystal Palace, leaving some Hull fans upset in the way he left.

Due to this link between then two clubs, we at Vital Leicester decided to contact the Hull editor and ask him a few questions on Peter Taylor and how Hull are doing this season.

Were you upset to lose Peter Taylor as a manager?

In the end no. After he rejected Charlton, we all thought it was great as he said he wanted to stay here and finish what he started. Two weeks later, he left, but what made it worse was that it was to a club in the same division in the form of Crystal Palace. I wouldn't have minded had he made a move into the Premiership but since he didn't, there was a lot of ill feeling when he departed.

How has the season gone so far for you?

Not very well as you can see. We aren't playing brilliantly but there is enough there to suggest that the first win is just around the corner. The new signings played well at Birmingham so hopefully they will continue that tonight.

Who is your danger man?

Michael Bridges - the new striker played very well at Birmingham and looked a class above anything else I’ve seen. He still has the touches that saw him become a Premiership regular and he will be a real threat if he plays tonight.

Where do you think you will finish this season?

I would hope for a mid-table finish but I would find anything higher than last seasons 18th as a success. I think somewhere between 13th and 18th.

What is your Prediction for the game?

I hope that this will be our first win and if we get some luck for once, it could be. Leicester have done well at home so far but I think we may sneak a 1-0 win.
