Leicester v Coventry

By John Sinclair, Sports Reporter
The Milan Mandaric era for Leicester City begins with a local derby against Coventry at the Walkers Stadium on Saturday 17 February. Rob Kelly is looking to build on their 2-0 win against Ipswich at Portman Road.

Championship
Start Date:17/02/2007
Venue Name:Walkers Stadium, Leicester
Venue Town:Leicester

The new owner of Leicester City, Milan Mandaric, will be hoping to see the side follow up their win at Ipswich with another victory over local rivals Coventry at the Walkers Stadium on 17 February.

Listen to pre-match interviews with Rob Kelly and Matty Fryatt, plus BBC Radio Leicester's John Sinclair talks to Danny Tiatto about his decision to move back to his native Australia this summer...

Foxes manager Rob Kelly says he's pleased that Mandaric's takeover is now complete and didn't rule out making more loan signings:

"We've got targets but we missed out on some of them because Milan hadn't yet taken over, but we're out there looking and there are one or two players that we think if we could add they would help us and improve us."

Local Rivals

Rob Kelly is now looking forward to the visit of Coventry and says it's a match the fans hope they can enjoy:

Welcome to the Mandaric era

"We've not played Nottingham Forest for a couple of seasons, so probably the Derby and Coventry games have a bit more edge to them, and fans like to have local bragging rights."

On the game, itself Kelly is expecting a battle:

"Adrian Heath is in charge at Coventry at the moment, and like us they're in a difficult position and also like us they'll be desperate for the win."

Listen to the full match commentary live from the Walkers Stadium with BBC Radio Leicester's Jon Barber and former City defender Steve Walsh from 15:00.
