Games for Mid-week 03/01

After so long without a game we now have our 3rd competitive game in just over a week, this time we travel up to Leicester for an evening game

Leicester v Fulham

So after 6 weeks without Fulham we get 3 games in quick succession!, so just three days after the Southampton game we face Leicester at the King Power Stadium.

Saturday’s game was something of an off-day for us, the mark of a good team is getting something from a game even when we don’t play that well, so “in theory” we all should be happy? Booby and Harrison didn’t have their best game, and although Tom “hit the ground running” I didn’t think Dan James should have been picked over Harry Wilson, Marko obviously knows what injuries the players have so I’ll trust his judgement, I’d have chosen Wilson.
If Mitro had scored the penalty the scoreline would have flattered us, we obviously did enough to win the game but it was a lot closer that I’d hoped.

For their last game Leicester lost away to Liverpool on Friday evening, no shame or surprise there however, they’re currently in 17 place and will be looking to move up that table as soon as they can, they’ll be looking for all 3 points.

Our recent record against Leicester in quite even with 2 wins, 3 losses and 1 draw

Assuming no additional injuries my team would be…
