Hughton Speaking! P-12 and Counting   1 comment

(P = Promotion, Play-offs or Perpetual championship

(depending on the depths of your Partisan beliefs)

On Tuesday night, Chris Hughton‘s (not so mighty at the moment) Blues are off to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City

This is one fixture I’m really not looking forward to, yet another East Midlands team but this time , on paper, the strongest East Midland side. We’ve only taken 2 points from the last 3 East Midland’s sides lately when most Bluenoses presumed it was going to be 9.

This will be Blues’ 49th game of the season.

In their last 6 matches they have taken 9 points ( won 3, lost 3 ). In their last 6 home matches they have also taken 9 points ( won 2, drew 3, lost 1). They come into this game on the back of a 3 – 1 defeat away defeat to Reading.

Blues in the league have also taken 9 points from our last 6 (won 2, drew 3, lost 1).In our last 6 away games we have taken 11 ( won 3, drew 2, lost 1). Blues have only lost 1 of our last 15 league games, let’s hope we can make it 16. Blues come into this fixture on the back of what felt like a 2- 2 ‘loss’ to Forest.

This fixture will hopefully be a kick-start to Blues, there should be no apathy in the side, this fixture is definitely not a forgone conclusion. Let’s hope Chris Hughton does ‘tinker with the side‘ this week and tinker us back to the team that beat Barnsley 3 – 1, the undefeated winning side we started to take for granted.

The FORUM this week have divided opinions, with some Bluenoses even predicting a 2 – 1 defeat. I can understand their reasoning but I just can’t bring myself to write it.

This is only a look at the current form for both sides for a more in-depth look at the fixture see the match preview.

BLUES 2 – Leicester City 1
