The Leicester fans who have bought tickets for tonights away game against Hereford United will be happy to hear that according to the official Leicester website, Rob Kelly is planning on putting out the strongest first team available.

Leicester do have a few injuries, which could see Paul Henderson, Paddy McCarthy and Andy Johnson miss out on the game. With these players missing, Rob Kelly will have to make sure that he puts a team out, which is strong enough to win at Edgar Street.

In the last round of the League cup, Hereford destroyed Championship team Coventry City 3-1. This shows that they are no push overs and if the Leicester players underestimate Hereford, it could come back to haunt them.

Hereford were promoted to the football league after winning the Conference play off final against Halifax at the Walkers Stadium. Currently they are positioned 11th in League 2 after a solid start to the season.

Although it is only a League cup game, it is still a very important one. After a promising draw against Sunderland, Leicester need to build on the result, a win tonight against Hereford would help keep confidence up and hopefully give the strikers a chance to score some much needed goals.

The last time the two sides meet was during the 3rd round of the FA cup in 1999. After a 0-0 draw in the first game, it was only a goal in the 104th minute from Muzzy Izzet that gave Leicester the 2-1 win.

Leicester’s next game is at home against Colchester United on Saturday. The pressure will be back on the Leicester City players, as the home fans will expect nothing else then a win. Therefore tonights game is essential, if Leicester can get a convincing win it will fill all the players with confidence and hopefully they will carry it over to the Colchester game.
