BLACK­POOL v LE­ICES­TER

It’s no Hol­low win to beat the Foxes

Midweek Sport - - SPORTS -

IAN HOL­LOWAY is look­ing for a first vic­tory over old em­ploy­ers Le­ices­ter tonight – but it is pro­mo­tion rather than re­venge that is on his mind.

The Seasiders boss (be­low) has lost all three of his sub­se­quent meet­ings with Le­ices­ter.

But he is adamant that vic­tory against his old club tonight would be all about a re­turn to the top-flight.

He said: “I’ve not had any luck against them so far – we’ve lost ev­ery time we’ve played them.

“But it doesn’t mean any more to me be­cause it is Le­ices­ter. I wish noth­ing but the best for that club be­cause the fans are ter­rific and they de­serve suc­cess.

“For me, it is just an­other game we have to try to win.

“But that won’t be easy be­cause they have some qual­ity play­ers.”

Nigel Pear­son has warned his Le­ices­ter play­ers to keep on it – de­spite their fine show­ing in the 5-2 loss at Chelsea.

Pear­son said: “The dan­ger af­ter a game and re­sult like Chelsea is that peo­ple can lose a bit of fo­cus, and I will be work­ing very hard to make sure that doesn’t hap­pen.”
