Looking to Leicester

Next: It's Ian Holloway's Leicester at Loftus Road, New Years Day, with another QPR victory certainly not out of the question! (If QPR do win, it will be only the second time this season that they have won two consecutive games.) On Saturday, Leicester were leading at home to Charlton, only to concede another late goal - sounds familiar! Leicester ending up in a 1-1 draw.

Leicester are currently once place above QPR with the same number of points, but Leicester have the superior goal difference. Leicester's Away record is: 2 wins - 7 draws - 3 defeats. Scored 11; conceded 13. (QPR's home record is 3 wins - 4 draws - 5defeats. Scored 9. Conceded 14.) See also Leicester Results this season and Leicester's Squad
This is Local London/Simon Mail - Buszaky looks to Leicester
AKOS Buzsaky quickly turned his attention to the crucial match with Leicester after his goal helped QPR beat Watford 4-2.
The Hungarian came off the bench to hit Rangers' last goal in the win yesterday but claims the match on New Year's Day against the Foxes is more important.
He was surprisingly rested for the clash but still managed to hit his sixth goal of the season for the club in the victory.
Buzsaky said: "The manager told me I was being rested because the Leicester game is very important. I was just happy to see the team get the win.
"The problem we have had is against teams around us. So we have to win the Leicester match to prove we are better than our current league position." This is Local London

Ian Holloway - Leicester Official Site
Ian Holloway said he couldn't have asked for anymore from his players following the 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic at the Walkers Stadium on Saturday.
The Foxes had gone into the game looking to record back-to-back home wins for the first time since August 2006.
And it had looked a distinct possibility when they took the lead in the 78th minute - Stephen Clemence heading home a Matty Fryatt cross.
But a last minute goal from former City defender Paddy McCarthy meant that it was honours even on the day - leaving Holloway to reflect on what might have been.
He said: "I think that was a brilliant performance against one of the so called big teams in this division. I thought that we were terrific in the second half.
"We were a little bit nervous in the first half. We have got a couple of young gentlemen out there who need a little bit more confidence, but in the end I couldn't have asked for anymore than they gave me.
"We were just one header and one punch from getting a fantastic double victory.
"There is a transition of play when you defend and when you attack. We got that slightly wrong at the end and that cost us.
"We have got to learn how to shut up shop and get what we deserve.
"We got rocked early on and we had to bring on two relatively inexperienced lads. That knocked us a little bit because it ruined our balance.
"People have to remember that I am asking players to play out of position because of the injuries and the suspensions that we have actually got.
"One or two things were said at half time and I thought that the response I got was terrific. We have actually taken the game to Charlton and in the end we were desperately unlucky not to have got all three points.
"We have been beaten by an overhead kick from a centre half that used to play here. How many times is he ever going to do that again? It's really frustrating and the tide has got to turn.
"If we could have got three points again today then that would have made a big difference to us, but I can't ask for anymore than what the players have given me over the last three games. They have worked their socks off." Leicester
