    Leicester have existed as a sister club to Leicester City since 2004, mostly playing in the regional leagues. They were runners-up in the Northern League last year. So, like us, they're Championship newbies. Like us, they've recruited a lot of players in the summer.

    Their Championship season so far: P6 W3 D1 L2

    The stadium has a capacity of 1400 (mostly standing) and an artificial pitch. The stadium is apparently in Quorn, a village near Loughborough, not the fungus derived meat substitute.

    I’ve grown to expect away wins against opponents on upper half of the table ... a nice, if cocky, sensation. Leicester do have three wins so far.

    I don't know if they do it every match, but Leicester's last game was on YouTube live. (I thought we played Sunday just gone which is how I found it).

    Still nothing to say if they'll be live streaming it on their YouTube channel. I'm still holding out hope that they're saying nothing until they've got the paying crowd safely inside!

    Not surprisingly the game has been postponed.

    Some sad stuff that. No way to play after that. Eerie reminder of a point in our own history.
