Opposition

  • Leicester Road got here by beating Hanley Town (a team from a level higher) 3-2 away in the Extra Preliminary Round.
  • Leicester Road currently sit fourth in the Midland Football League Division One (three levels below Sporting), having won all three of their games to date, scoring 10 and conceding zero.
  • Their most recent match was a 1-0 home win over Stafford Town on Tuesday evening.
  • In the 2016/17 Midland Football League Division One season, in which Sporting went the whole season unbeaten (104 points from 38 games), Leicester Road finished third (79 points from 38 games).
  • That season saw Sporting beat Leicester Road 1-0 in both the home and away fixtures.

With no 3:00 KOs for Villa, Blues, WBA or Wolves tomorrow, it’s an absolute no brainer to get yourselves down to the VG and support the Rouslers, as we look to embark on a good run in the world’s best cup competition! Hope to see you there!
