Leicester City - Peterborough Utd.

After just six rounds in the second tier, Leicester proved their pre-season high expectations have reliable cover. Club have no financial worries, squad is well balanced and eleven points in opening six rounds is just a sign of their high limits. At their Walkers Stadium, they’ve noticed all three wins (Swansea City 2-1, Barnsley 1-0 and Blackpool 2-1). Foxes also gathered a large amount of self confidence in their previous season in League One (1st place with 96 points and 84 scored goals on the balance) and don’t respect anyone even in higher level. Excellent striker Matty Fryatt (32 goals last season) started again to terrorize opposite’s goalkeepers. Five goals so far and both in Saturday’s home win over Blackpool (2-1). If they manage to keep their recent shape, Foxes will be the favorites against any opponent at Walkers, where they completed a calendar year without a league defeat. Manager Nigel Pearson has a full strength squad at his disposal bar midfielder and ex-skipper Stephen Clemence and defender Aleksandar Tunchev. Pearson also has raise a dressing room atmosphere saying he would not swap his squad for any other in the Championship.

Oppositely from tonight’s hosts, Peterboroug find it’s very difficult to collect points in the second tier, noticing their worst start to a season for 21 years. Three draws and same defeats from opening six rounds, with six goals scored and big ten conceded (just Scunthorpe have managed to concede more – 13). Strategy for backing on own forces hasn’t brought anything good, so far. Squad hasn’t been strengthened during the transfer market and visitors will face a tough season to avoid return to League One. However, yet they can consider themselves unlucky following a series of some good displays that have gone unrewarded. Last one was in Saturday’s draw (1-1) against favored QPR on the road. Lads showed some courage, attacked the hosts and took a lead in the opening stage of the game. Conceded a goal later, but was closer to victory. One their goal was cancelled in stoppage time and even QPR’s boss Jim Magilton said that his side were lucky to avoid defeat. Now Posh have to turn good displays in collecting the points. Well, Walkers Stadium is not the best place for improving the points balance, but maybe their luck will change. Boss Darren Ferguson will again be without his key defender Charlie Lee as his ankle injury has not yet healed and striker Ben Wright is also out.

Big winners against big losers. I can not say I’m smelling a rat, but won’t be surprised if Posh noticed a first win there where nobody expects. Home side have already added three points from this game on their account, while visitors will attack again. Instead home win, I see an open game and go for goals. 2.05 at Expekt. Over.
