Posh Up Next For Foxes

Leicester City face a tough test when they come up against Peterborough United tomorrow at the Walkers Stadium.

Peterborough themselves have been in impressive form of late, unbeaten in their last 16 games in League One.

Tomorrow's game pits 1st vs 4th, and looks set to provide great entertainment for both sets of fans.

Vital Quotes:

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: 'Peterborough have experienced a lot of success this year by playing attacking football. I fully expect them to be a threat against us. They are on a good run and I am sure they will come here with a lot of confidence.

'We will just have to make sure that we play somewhere near our maximum. That's the most important thing.'

Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson:'We can't afford to lose at Leicester because 10 points would be a massive gap to make up against a team of their quality. We wouldn't be out of the promotion race, but we would have an awful lot to do. We will go there to win like we do every game and I am confident we have the players to achieve it'

Leicester City Team News:

Leicester should have Aleksander Tunchev back from injury, as he sat out last week's win at Carlisle.
