Swindon face one of the toughest tasks of the season with a trip to League One's best team.
'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
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,
The Nuneaton hitman has already reached 20 league goals and will no doubt trouble the Town defence.
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
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.
Both teams previous league results were 0-0 draws against Oldham!
The two teams have only played eachother 18 times with Leceister winning 6 and Swindon 5, the rest draws.
The most famous game between the two is the epic 1993 Play-Off Final with Swindon winning 4-3 despite surrending a 3-0 lead.
Peter Eastoe, Frank Large, Nicky Summerbee, Tim Flowers, Trevor Benjamin and Lilian Nalis are amongst those who have played for both clubs.
A Bates: 26 Matches this season. 49 Yellow Cards 3 Red Cards Last Town Fixture 06/12/08: Swindon Town 1-1 Carlisle United
Leicester City 3-1 Swindon Town
After Leicester City, Swindon face another tough trip - this time Millwall on Feb 17.
