Event: League 1st Division Play-Off Final, Date: Monday, May 27 1996

Stadium: Wembley Attendance: 75 573

Goals: Garry Parker 76 (pen), Steve Claridge (120)

How must Leicester play to get a good result
Would like to see the team in a 4-4-1-1 formation, and with Okazaki out with injury, would move Mahrez in behind Vardy and give Demarai Gray a starting position. To have two strikers would be a bit risky, so that would be the way to start.

Preferred Line Up
Hamer - Simpson, Chilwell, Maguire, Dragovic - Ndidi, Silva, Albrighton, Gray - Mahrez - Vardy

Stats & Facts

Players In Both Camps
There are a few, two in present are Jeffrey Schlupp and Patrick Van Aanholt. You also have Damien Delaney in the Crystal Palace squad, but the experienced defender is not been much involved.

Two players to mention from the past are Steve Kember and Alan Birchenall who both played a vital role at Leicester during the seventies, and had good spells at Crystal Palace. Mark Bright is another, for the full list, check the in both camps update.

Behind Enemy Lines
To be a spy is always fun, and surfing around the opponents fansites is a thrill. We have visited
Holmesdale.Net and looked at their head to head report on three players at both teams. Interesting views and opinions, worth a read.

A full preview read also done of
The Eagles Beak. They believe Crystal Palace will be the winners this time and that would probably make the owners at Leicester City a bit worried about Claude Puel and his way of running the team.

The Cunning Fox - Two Bets
This time we are going for the following, Final Result: 0-2 (LCFC Win), First Goalscorer: Jamie Vardy, Place Your Bets

Fun Facts / Did You Know
The original nickname of Crystal Palace was
The Glaziers. Glaziers are glassworkers and tied to the workers and supporters of the early club when they played at the ground of Crystal Palace. This ground also hosted FA Cup finals until 1914.

Malcolm Allison who became manager of Crystal Palace in 1973 decided to change things around, got the nickname changed to The Eagles and also changed the home colours.

Crystal Palace actually based their colours on the once of
Aston Villa, claret and blue. Villa donated the first pack of shirts to Palace.

Crystal Palace is the only team to ever be relegated from the top flight finishing fourth from bottom. This happened in the 1994-95 season when the top tier was reduced from 22 to 20 teams.

Injuries and Suspensions
Leicester will be without Kasper Schmeichel and Shinji Okazaki, both injured. In the Palace camp the following are unavailable, Connor Wickham, Bakary Sako, Jason Puncheon and Scott Dann.

Last Clash
Leicester visited Crystal Palace almost a year ago. Robert Huth scored first to give Leicester a lead, but goals from Christian Benteke
and Yohan Cabaye secured the win at home for Palace.

Short View on the Opponent
Crystal Palace is a team who are just where you predicted them to be, in the bottom half and struggling for survival. They have a good number of quality players, but lack the depth in especially defence.

One to Watch is of course Wilfried Zaha who can win a game on his own. He has great pace, can attack and dribble as well as scoring vital goals, so Puel must have a plan to stop him.

Players of the Past
I have met
Steve Kember, a legend at Palace and also a good player at Leicester City. also met Peter Taylor who was in charge for both Leicester City and Crystal Palace, and it never became heroic, but his time as a player at Palace was one fantastic.
