Chambo looking to build on first away win with victory over high-flying Foxes at Portman Road tomorrow
Luke Chambers has told the Club website that Town ‘fear no one’ at present and is relishing the challenge of taking on promotion candidates Leicester City at Portman Road tomorrow.
The Blues defender was delighted to see Town record a first away win of the season against Blackpool last time out and is now hoping to build on that with a win against the Foxes- a side he believes will be there or thereabouts come the end of the season.
“They’ve had a flying start to the season but to be fair to them, they’ve been a very good team for the last three or four years,” the former Nottingham Forest man told the Club website.
“They haven’t quite made that final step in getting promoted but they’ve always been there or thereabouts, so we know it will be a tough match.
“We had a horrific result against them at their place last year but when they came down here we managed to beat them.
“We don’t fear anyone at the moment and I don’t see any reason why we should. I think we’ve held our own with everyone and we’ve been on top against most teams we’ve played against, so they will know that they will come down here and be in for a tough game.”
Town will again be without the services of Aaron Cresswell, as the left-back serves the final game of his two-match ban following his sending off against Barnsley. Tommy Smith and Carlos Edwards have both returned from international duty and could both be involved, whilst Paul Anderson is fit after missing the win over Blackpool with a groin injury.
The Foxes have French midfielder Anthony Knockaert suspended for the clash at Portman Road but have been boosted by the news that striker Chris Wood has returned from international duty with New Zealand fully fit. Sean St. Ledger is a doubt with a groin injury.

Last time we met
A David McGoldrick strike ensured Blues took all three points the last time the two sides met, on a chilly afternoon at Portman Road in March earlier this year. Daryl Murphy robbed Foxes skipper Wes Morgan of the ball before playing in strike partner McGoldrick, who expertly finished into the bottom corner with just five minutes left on the clock to see Mick McCarthy’s side claim a valuable three points in the bid to avoid relegation last term.
