Leicester 1-0 Everton

Leicester 1-0 Everton

Our Thailand friendly to celebrate King Power's 25th Anniversary against our opening day opponents on our return to the Premier League finished in victory for the club.

The match was secured through a second half goal from Gary Taylor-Fletcher, and whilst nobody should read too much into this in terms of how we will fare on the opening day against Everton nor how we will do this campaign, the victory is a hell of a confidence boost and will be relished by manager Nigel Pearson and the boys.

I'm not sure there will be a psychological element as some have talked about, as Everton are just as likely to have at the back of their head 'they beat us' as they are to really focus and take us seriously now, so it could go either way.

But it was a day of positives, and the gaffer gave a full 90 minutes to Wes Morgan and Liam Moore, new signing Leo Ulloa made his debut and got 45 minutes under his belt, as did 18 other players who stepped up their own fitness.

Best of all for us, it was a good, solid performance and really shows that our hard work in training so far is paying dividends.
