Leicester v Glovers - Preview

Leicester v Glovers - Preview

Impossible isn't a word that The Glovers know, many said it was 'impossible' that we'd make it into the SkyBet Championship. Some say it's impossible that we'll stay here, they might be right on that score but we did make it.

Is it impossible that we can beat Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday? No it's not impossible but it's a heck of a task we face.

Leicester should have Ritchie De Laet available. He suffered a knock in the draw on Saturday but should be fit to leave them able to name an unchanged squad.

Nigel Pearson has plenty of options to call upon if he wants to make some changes but will be without Sean St. Ledger (knee) and Tom Hopper (shin) due to injuries.

The Glovers had hoped, as unlikely as it seemed, Ruben Palazuelos could have been fit for Saturday's game but he wasn't quite ready. His hamstring injury is being 'monitored' and he could make the squad.

If not it's thought that Gary Johnson will name the same squad, if not the same starting line up that lost a two goal lead in the draw with Bolton on Saturday.

In the three previous meetings between these sides Leicester have won the lot, including a 2-1 win at Huish Park in October. With them on a 17 game unbeaten SkyBet Championship record, and having won 13 of them, it'll take some effort for us to win.

We need the points but not many would expect us to end an unbeaten run that stretches back to early December.
