Foxes Set to Face Bulls

Hereford United are the visitors to the Walkers later today as Leicester look to mainain their top of the league status with a host of teams breathing down their necks.

Hereford have had a disappointing season so far following their promotion to League One last season and currently sit 23rd.

However, a well fought point at home to Tranmere last game after being behind twice will give the visitors some confidence ahead of the game.

Hereford's last visit to the Walkers came in their Conference playoff final vs. Halifax, where the Bulls secured promotion to the football league.

Leicester will be looking to bounce back to winning ways following their draw with Leeds at Elland Road on Boxing Day, a late goal from Robert Snodgrass denying the Foxes the win.

Just had to say McCauley is the worst defender I have ever seen play. Thanks for that Hope the money was well spent. I think we could be swapping places by the end of the season. Good luck.
