Dismal days for City at Brighton

After securing City's first away win in 20 years at QPR, Leicester City caretaker manager Rob Kelly will be out to lay a few more bogies in their bottom-of-the-table clash at Brighton on Saturday.

First of all Leicester City are due revenge for defeat in their last genuine relegation battle in 1980-81 when Jock Wallace's City side lost 2-1 at the Goldstone ground and were subsequently relegated from the old Division One (today's Premiership) while the Seagulls survived.

To make the day worse, two City players, goalscorer Kevin MacDonald and striker Alan Young were both sent off.

City have won only two of their seven matches at Brighton.

And since their promotion clincher at the Walkers on Easter Saturday, 2003, City have not won any of their last three games against the seasiders.

Although the first encounter between the sides was an FA Cup tie in 1930-31 when Brighton were 2-1 'giantkillers' at Filbert Street, the sides have only met 20 times all told with Brighton boasting 9 wins to Leicester's eight and three games finishing level.
