'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Leicester City vs. Swindon Town

Walkers Stadium

13/02/09

1500

LCFC vs. STFC

Swindon face one of the toughest tasks of the season with a trip to League One's best team.

Quotes:

'There's still 16 games to so there are still a lot of games to be won and lost... We are in a decent position but if anyone is starting to relax then they need to reassess that because we are still in for a tough final third of the season.'

- Nigel Pearson talking to BBC Radio Leicester

'We'd be foolish to go up there and play a normal, ordinary game - we've got to give ourselves a chance... We'll put a team out that gives us the best possible chance, and there's a couple of areas I think we can exploit in their team... If the players can't go out there and enjoy themselves and express themselves, then they'll have to ask questions.'

- Danny Wilson talking to BBC Radio Swindon

Leicester City Team News:

Joe Mattock returns from England U-21 duty unscathed and is likely to go straight back into the squad.

Last City Squad

XI: Martin, Gilbert, Hobbs, Morrison, Mattock, Oakley, Andy King, Cleverley, Dyer, Fryatt, Howard

Subs: Berner, Dickov, Gradel Pentney, Brown,

Player to watch: Matty Fryatt

The Nuneaton hitman has already reached 20 league goals and will no doubt trouble the Town defence.

Swindon Town Team News:

Lee Peacock remains sidelined while Barry Corr and Hasney Aljofree are long-term absentees.

Danny Wilson has hinted that he may use the fixture as an opportunity to introduce some youth players to the first team with the likes of Sean Morrison and Ben Joyce returning to the set-up while highly rated youngsters Lloyd Macklin and Nathan Thompson could also feature.

Last Town Squad

XI: Brezovan, Vincent, Ifil, Greer, Amankwaah, Robson-Kanu, Kanyuka, Allen, McGovern, Paynter, Cox

Subs: Easton, Phil Smith, McNamee, Lescinel, Razak

Player to watch: Simon Cox

It will be interesting to see how Chris Allen and Pat Kanyaka do after earning praise in recent weeks.

However, Simon Cox is the player that can make a difference.

I can't see Swindon beating Leicester. The team just isnt strong enough, Wilson needs to get serious if he wants to keep this job.

Good 'pep' talk there minipig.......prat ! Danny is probably the best manager in my opinion we could have at the moment, or perhaps you would like to go back to MM or AK...Hmm It is unlikely on form we will get a result today... but hey lets not get too negative before the match has even kicked off.
