3 p.m.

Leicester travel to Hereford tomorrow knowing that a win would almost set them on their way to League One promotion.

With Peterborough's 1-1 draw with Cheltenham and Millwall's 2-0 defeat at Yeovil, the Foxes can seal promotion with two wins in their next two matches, teh second of which is against Leeds United on Monday.

Hereford have found life tough in League One this season, and currently find themselves residing in 23rd position, 9 points from safety. Relegation looks ominous for the Bulls.

Vital Quotes:

Hereford manager Graham Turner: 'We hope to get a victory over Leicester and this is the big challenge to the players: go and do to Leicester what you did to Leeds.

'They have had a great season and have been top of the table for the vast majority of it.

'It's a big challenge, so we have to see if we can rise to that challenge and get something out of the game.'


Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: 'It's time now for keeping our nerve and making sure we achieve the standards we've aspired to all season.

'We have to make sure our form between now and the end of the season is better than of late'.

Hereford United Team News:

Hereford are suffering from a lengthy injury list, with Josh Gowling, Dean Beckwith and Darren Dennehy all sidelined.

Player to watch: Steve Guinan

The Bulls' top goalscorer so far this season with 12 in League One, therefore making him Hereford's biggest goal threat.

Leicester City Team News:

With Kerrea Gilbert injured in last week's draw with Carlisle, Nigel Pearson could recall centre back Michael Morrison to fill the void.

Player to watch: Steve Howard

The big striker will need to perform tomorrow to help his strike partner Matty Fryatt, as he has done for so much of this season. A powerful threat aerially, Hereford will have to keep Howard quiet in order to get to Fryatt.
