Dave Burnley column: A point was earned on day of history
LEICESTER is one of the nicer cities that we visit in the Championship. Indeed it has quite recently been at the centre of much worldwide media attention with the discovery of human remains of King Richard III in a previously unknown central location.
Historically it also boasts one of the countries oldest outdoor markets, which dated all the way back to 1298 and is located just outside the Exchange Building.
And that is where my date starts in the early-opening Wetherspoons outlet of the same name.
It is also where I conducted my own history lesson to the Leicester fans when they discovered I was a Burnley fan.
Although they weren’t too impressed at first, I got them onside when I added that David Nugent has scored four goals against us in his last five games.
The ex-Claret added a little more to his goalscoring history when he dispatched a debatable penalty to give the Foxes a first-half lead.
But once again, after being second best, the Clarets stormed back to claim a fifth gutsy draw in their last seven appearances and remain in an automatic promotion place. It was yet another commendable point.
We take on the Seasiders from from Blackpool and there is a great chance that we can regain top spot.
