CoymaySix questions about our next opponents – the answers will be posted on here tomorrow.

60’s. Whose own goal was enough to get Leicester a 1-1 draw at Ninian Park in September 1969?

70’s. Who scored the dramatic late equaliser that enabled City to scramble a 2-2 home draw with Leicester in October 1970?

80’s.   Anybody not familiar with the City team of that time who looked at our line up for the 3-1 defeat at Leicester in April 1982 might think that we had signed a couple of Greek internationals in our unsuccessful bid to avoid relegation that season – who are the two players I’m referring to?

90’s. The 1992/93 Division 4 Champions/Welsh Cup Winners squad contained three former Leicester City players and two others who would play for that club in the future – can you name those five players?

00’s. Our 3-2 win over Leicester in January 2007 is remembered for Michael Chopra’s superb hat trick, but appearing for us that day was one player making his first start in a home game for City and another who was making his home debut, do you know their names?

10’s. The Leicester side beaten 2-1 here in March 2010 included a player who won ninety five caps for his country, can you name him?
