Leicester vs. AFC Bournemouth

King Power Stadium

26th October 2013

Cherries travel to Leicester

The Cherries travel to Leicester City to complete back to back away matches against two of the divisions promotion favourites.

Last Saturday, AFC Bournemouth travelled to Nottingham Forest and returned to the south coast with a well earned point and Eddie Howe's side will be hoping to also return to Dean Court this Saturday with more points in the bag following their first visit to the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City are currently third in the Championship table, boasting the second best home record in the division with five victories and one draw from their opening six home games of the season.

Vital Quotes:

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo...

"...I think we have progressed as a team and got better as the season has gone on, and hopefully that continues to be the case.

"I think it will be a different test at Leicester to the one we faced at Nottingham Forest. They play a certain way and have been together for a long period of time, so, if anything, it could be a tougher test.

"We are going to have to perform better because although there was really positive aspects from our display, we knew at the end of the game that we could have played better."

Leicester Team News:

According to Vital Leicester, attacking right full back Ritchie De Laet missed the last game and could be absent for the next six weeks after undergoing surgery on his tibia.

Player to watch: Jamie Vardy

Vital Leicester told AFCB Vital...

Jamie Vardy has caused teams problems at the back, although David Nugent is our top goal scorer so far this season. We seem to be winning a lot of penalties this year so watch out for that!

AFC Bournemouth Team News:

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has not reported any new injury problems ahead of the game.

Ryan Allsop is expected to return to the side following the dislocated shoulder Stephen Henderson suffered against Nottingham Forest.

Ryan Fraser could be in line for a return after missing the game at the City Ground.

Player to watch: Tokelo Rantie

The South African striker is yet to score his first goal for the Cherries following his club record move from Swedish side Malmo.

He has however caused opposition teams problems and has looked a constant goal threat.

His chance will come.
