Key Players:

Andy King: A talented centre midfielder with an eye for goal, Andy King made his first appearance for the Foxes against Wolves in 2007. He was instrumental in Leicester`s promotion back from League 1 scoring 9 goals in 45 league matches. Last year he embraced the step up to the Championship scoring 10 times in 45 games. King is dangerous at set-pieces and has a fine passing range. The Leicester playmaker has started this season excellently scoring 4 times in 6 appearances.

Martyn Waghorn: A player that needs no introduction to QPR fans. Twenty-year-old Waghorn scored twice in a disappointing 4-0 defeat away to the Foxes last season. The former Sunderland player had a loan spell at Charlton in 2008. Last year he signed on a season long loan to Leicester scoring 12 times in 45 games. After impressing on loan Waghorn signed for Leicester on a permanent deal worth £3 million.
