Clash of the Titans

Tomorrow pits League One's top two clubs together as current leaders Leicester travel to Milton Keynes tomorrow knowing a win would go a huge way to securing promotion from the division this season.

The Foxes came out winners in the reverse tie on the first game of the season as two goals from Matty Fryatt secured a 2-0 win for Nigel Pearson's men at the Walkers Stadiun.

Vital Quotes:

Mk Dons manager Roberto Di Matteo: 'They're a great team, for me they're top six in the Championship when you combine the fan base, the squad, the facilities, a great manager and some fantastic players. It doesn't get much better than that.

'I think we'll put up a brick wall in front of the goal! But seriously, we'll be focused on what we're going to do, try to be positive, do our stuff and, in the meantime, try to make sure they're not able to score.'


Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: 'MK Dons have had a great season, it just shows what momentum can do. They had a great year last year and have continued this year.

'In some ways they have played themselves down somewhat but they have been very consistent and represent a very tough obstacle'.

MK Dons Team News:

Former Manchester United midfielder Luke Chadwick faces a late fitness test, while Luke Howell is struggling with a hamstring injury.

Player to watch: Willy Gueret

Fryatt and co will have to be at their best if they want to be Gueret. The goalkeeper is a fan's favourite at Stadium:MK with his consistently brilliant performances.

Leicester City Team News:

Nigel Pearson will be without centre back Jack Hobbs after his red card against Bristol Rovers last weekend. With Aleksander Tunchev still sidelined, it will be down to Wayne Brown and Michael Morrison to keep out the Dons' attack.

Captain Matt Oakley should be available for the clash after limping off last weekend.

Player to watch: Lloyd Dyer

The former Dons player has been in hugely disappointing form of late but will be looking to bounce back against his old club in style tomorrow. Foxes fans are hoping for a backlash after some prolonged lacklusture performances.
