Lee believes Leicester will come up against a very 'different' Blues team this weekend compared to the side they faced at the King Power Stadium back in November

Lee Martin says Leicester will face a very different Town side to the one that was hammered by the Foxes in the early weeks of Mick McCarthy’s management at Portman Road.

The Blues’ boss had only been in charge for a couple of weeks when he took Town to the King Power Stadium, and while the 5-0 defeat at Crystal Palace 10 days earlier was a false scoreline, there was no doubting that Lee and his team-mates were second best at Leicester with six goals flying past Stephen Henderson.

Town might still be in a relegation battle but a return of 32 points since Mick and Terry Connor arrived at Portman Road has illustrated the impact they have had since the start of November. 

“Looking back at that game, it was a tough 90 minutes for us,” recalled Lee.

“It was early days for the manager though and Leicester played well on the day. They are a very good side, in fairness.

“It’s a bad memory for us and we want to put that right at the weekend and we are looking forward to having the opportunity to do that.

“We are much better at the back now than we have been for a while, maybe for the last three years. We’re organised and are working as a unit not to concede goals.”
