“This is a must-not-lose game” said former Leicester City defender Gerry Taggart in the build up to this contest against Hull City. That’s a fairly huge turnaround from the last time we played them. That wasn’t even must win, it was just a seemingly guaranteed easy win.
Things are a bit different now, and I think Taggart may be right. After a hugely uplifting victory over Liverpool last week, we’ve put a small amount of space between us and the bottom three. We can't let that go so soon. Back to back wins would be great, but when were our last back to back points? October. That’s not how you build confidence.

Things are a little different for the Tigers, who could be without a host of players, including Harry Maguire, Evandro, Curtis Davies, Michael Dawson, Ryan Mason, Sam Clucks, Lazar Markovic and Markus Henriksen. That’s 8. Last time we played them they had 12 outfield players.
No changes for the Foxes

In the meantime, let’s remember a better time (actually it was much worse), it’s Joey from the halfway line.
