Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson believes Leicester City are the best footballing side in the Championship – but is confident his team can repeat their victory of last season at London Road.
City might be heading to London Road on the back of a five-game winning streak but Ferguson said his side can draw belief from their 1-0 victory over City on home soil 11 months ago.
"We beat them here last season," Ferguson told the Peterborough Telegraph. "And we beat them when we were both challenging for promotion in League One a few years back.
"I do think Leicester are the best footballing side in the division and they're coming here in great form, but we have proved we can beat them so we can play with some confidence.
"It's a game to look forward to at any time of the season. There will be a big crowd and we will have a go at them."
Rock-bottom Posh are unsure of midfielder George Boyd's availability for the game.
Boyd was on the brink of a move to Nottingham Forest until the deal collapsed over a failed eye sight test, but several clubs are trying to take him on loan, including Crystal Palace.
However, Ferguson accused Palace boss and former City manager Ian Holloway of speaking to Boyd without permission.
"The one thing that has really annoyed me this week is that the Crystal Palace manager has been constantly ringing George," Ferguson said. "I don't think it is right and I'm not having it. He should not be speaking to one of my players."
