Howe expects tough Foxes test

BY foxsports • September 19, 2012

Burnley manager Eddie Howe is expecting a difficult game against Leicester at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Foxes have endured a patchy start to the campaign - Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Wolves their third on the road to sit alongside back-to-back home wins.

Like their opponents, the Clarets also lie on six points after five games following Saturday's 5-2 triumph over Peterborough to end a run of three consecutive defeats.

Howe said: "They have spent some money there. They've got a really good group of players, I think they're rightly one of the favourites to go up.

"We know it's going to be a difficult game. They're on the same points as us so both teams really want the points.

"They're a very open and attacking side. Having watched them against Wolves we know it's going to be a difficult one."
