Saturday 30th August
The Foxes travel to Cheltenham for the first time in City's 124 year history and it really begins to kick in the fact that we will be playing the likes of Cheltenham rather than Birmingham and Wolves.
Leicester should be looking at coming away from Whaddon Road with nothing less than 3 points and to be honest it would be a big failure if they didn't.
Barry Hayles for whom Cheltenham had loaned from City is not allowed to play due to a clause in the loan contract. Defender Shane Duff also looks set to miss out through injury. Although Dean Sinclair and Jennison Myrie-Williams are expected to return for the Robins.
The youngster is on loan at Whaddon Road from Bristol City. Known for his height and pace, he can play either as a striker or a winger and has already scored for the Robins this season.
Long term absentees Joe Mattock, Stephen Clemence and Patrick Kisnorbo remain sidelined. Aleksander Tunchev is set to return from a knock whilst playing for Bulgaria. Matt Oakley, who missed the cup game against Fulham is also expected to return from a leg injury.
This week my player to watch has to be Maxi Gradel. Already a hero amongst City fans after only 4/5 games, his skill and pace could provide the difference this Saturday. He made an instant impact against Fulham on Wednesday night after coming off the bench at half-time playing a part in both of our goals. Also, for those going to the game, watch out for the new Max Gradel song - to rude to write on here!
If I'm totally honest I have barely anything to write here apart from the fact that we have NEVER played Cheltenham in a Competitive Fixture. We have only ever clashed 3 times in reserve and friendly matches, the most recent being in July 2007 with a friendly at the Walkers providing a 2-0 victory for City with Matty Fryatt and Darren Kenton grabbing the goals.
I predict a pretty routine 2-0 victory for City and I'll have a pop at Matty Fryatt and Lloyd Dyer getting the goals.
City travel twice more after this match, first to Hartlepool in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Wednesday night and then to Colchester's new ground on the following Saturday.
And finally, COME ON CITY, BRING 3 POINTS BACK TO LEICESTER!
