This weekend see’s the return fixture of the East Midlands derby between Leicester City Football Club and Nottingham Forest Football Club. The match will take place at the 32,500 capacity Walkers stadium which is due to be full to the rafters come 3pm this Saturday. It promises to be a tasty and passionate affair with local pride at stake also revenge from a 5-1 beating when Nottingham Forest put 5 goals past Leicester City.
I was sat in the Trent End at the City Ground in Nottingham back in December where I was probably the most embarrassed ever whilst supporting my beloved Leicester City. For this reason, I am amongst those that will be sat in the Kop end at the Walkers stadium wishing for a result that would make my weekend. There is an added edge for me as I have friends coming from Nottingham to watch the match and I would love to serve them up with a similar result to the one previous this season.
Forest come to the Walkers stadium full of confidence after back to back wins although they haven’t had the best of times on the road recently after losing some recent away matches. Whilst the Foxes themselves have not lost in the last 7 games, hope this doesn’t indicate to a boring 0-0 draw.
Currently head to head there has been 89 matches between the two teams with Leicester winning 35 and Forest 34 with 20 draws; hopefully these are not ominous signs. I personally think it’ll be a 2-1 win to Leicester but obviously I have a bias view. The great atmosphere, quality teams and passionate fans can only point to another great day out at the Walkers
