BLACKPOOL v LEICESTER
It’s no Hollow win to beat the Foxes
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.”
