History of the Leicester City v Huddersfield Town fixture

Leicester City play host to Huddersfield Town at Walkers Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 12 of the 26 previous games, with the Foxes winning just 11.

The last time the two teams met at Leicester City was more than a decade ago, in April 1996, the Foxes carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League Division One match.
