Let's serve up treat for Leicester City fans, says midfielder Andy King

Midfield star Andy King says Leicester City are determined to serve up another cracker for fans against Barnsley today.

The game has been made a fans' fixture and the club has been turned into a 'Winter Wonderland'.

Cut-price tickets are on offer and an ice rink has been created along with fair rides.

City are on a roll at home with 10 goals in the last two home games, and King said they wanted to deliver another pre-Christmas present for the fans.

They face Barnsley, a side short on confidence after a run of nine games without a win and just one victory from 13, and King believes an early strike could prove a deadly blow to the Tykes' morale.

"We have been fortunate to score a couple of early goals at home which has given us and the fans a boost and we have gone on to dominate the games," he said.

"We have been scoring goals freely as well, which has made a difference. A lot of that will be in the opposition's heads now because they have seen the results of teams who have previously come here.

"They are thinking 'here we go again' if we score early. It is all down to concentration hard work and defending.

The club's Winter Wonderland over the weekend has a host of festive attractions, including a giant ice rink.

"It would be great to get all the kids down before Christmas," said King.

"The fans have been brilliant and definitely one of the major factors why we have done well at home so far.

"They have seen a lot of good football, probably the best they have seen for several years.

"They have seen goals and they have been positive even when things haven't gone our way, so it is good they have been able to enjoy some good results lately."

But King warned Barnsley are a dangerous side and his Wales team-mate, striker Craig Davies, is the man to stop. He pointed to last season as a warning when Barnsley won 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.

"We have to concentrate on every game. Teams are going to be looking at us as a scalp," he said.

The Winter Wonderland will only be open to supporters at the game today and the general public tomorrow (10am-4pm).
