Saturday we all went to see Leicester City take on East Midland rivals Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. We may have been the away team but the support for the Foxes was unbelievable as we had sold our full allocation of 8,000 tickets of a poor attendance of 18,477. The streets were blue around Trent Bridge as the Blue Army took over their near neighbours home. Forest were worried by the impact of such a big away support simply by the fact they turned up the PA system in our end. It was deafening before the game and at half time and then returned to a normal level once the game had finished.
The game was really one of two halves, the first was slightly edged by Forest with Schmeichel making a couple of class saves, which we’ve come to expect of late. We looked a bit sluggish to start with but once David Nugent had hit the crossbar our heads went up. Whilst in the second half, we turned on the pressure coming close on numerous occasions with Lloyd Dyer missing a ‘sitter’ from a couple of yards out. We could see this very clearly being as we were in the front row right behind the goal. Still with the reply and a home tie with Swindon Town in the next road, we could easily be in the 5th round of the oldest cup tournament in the world.
