Play-off fever has hit Leicester as thousands of football fans queued for a second day to snap up tickets for City's big match on Thursday. Supporters were again left waiting for about two hours as the line of eager fans snaked its way around the King Power Stadium today. Wes Fray, 19, from Anstey, is one of the lucky ones who managed to get a ticket. "I couldn't believe the queues," he said. " At one point it was winding all the way 'round the away end. "Everyone is still buzzing after the Forest game on Saturday – I've still got a hangover!" Many fans descended on the football ground after the sheer volume of calls to the ticket line and visits to the club website crashed the system. The football club has extended the opening hours of its Fanstore this week to make sure fans can get their hands on a ticket to the first leg of the play-off semi final, at home, against Watford at 7.45pm on Thursday. It follows City's last gasp 3-2 victory against their Nottingham rivals to sneak into the Championship's last play-off spot. Thursday's game is expected to be the biggest attendance of the season. A club spokesman said: "Supporters are encouraged to purchase their tickets early to avoid disappointment." The City Fanstore and the City Sales Centre will be open from 9am to 8pm tomorrow and on Wednesday to satisfy demand. Season ticket holders have until 8pm tomorrow to secure their own seats for the game, before they are released on general sale. Call 0844 815 5000, or visit: www.lcfcdirect.com
