Andy King: Aim is to keep Leicester City fans smiling after clash with Derby County
Andy King believes Leicester City will give their fans the bragging rights with victory over local rivals Derby County tomorrow.
City have claimed victories in the last four meetings between the East Midlands rivals, and the Rams have not tasted success in Leicester for 10 years.
After their 6-0 hammering of Ipswich the last time they were on home soil, King said City were brimming with confidence and is hoping they can continue to hold the upper hand against Nigel Clough's team.
"We've done that pretty well in our home games, especially against Derby, so we'll be looking to keep that going with the fans' help on Saturday," he said.

"Our record at the King Power Stadium has been great so far this season and we put six past Ipswich last time out, so the whole squad should be full of confidence.
"If we get things right, performance-wise, we'll have a great chance of picking up a result.
"I'm sure the fans will go to work or school on Monday morning with smiles on their faces if we do."
City have a good record in East Midlands derbies and are also unbeaten in five meetings with Nottingham Forest.
King said the secret to derby-day success was controlling your emotions.
"They're all big games because of where we're trying to get to, but Derby has a bit more on it because of what it means to the fans," said the Wales international.
"There's a different atmosphere at derby games. There's a lot of emotion involved, which can help if you channel it the right way. But you have to balance that by playing with a cool head."
Ticket prices for the game start at £26 for adults and £16 for under-18s. For further information go to:
