Leicester City aiming to make it five out of five against Bristol City, says striker David Nugent
Leicester City will be gunning to make it five out of five when they entertain Bristol City at the King Power Stadium tomorrow, says top scorer David Nugent.
Second-placed City boast a 100 percent record on home soil so far this season, which can only be matched by leaders Cardiff City.
Nugent said the players were very proud of that record and are determined to ensure the Robins, who have won twice in their last three visits to the King Power Stadium, don't bring it to an end.
The Robins won 3-1 in December 2009, and 2-1 at the start of last season when City, then managed by Sven-Goran Eriksson, were struggling for form at the start of the campaign.

Nugent said the home support has inspired them to make the King Power Stadium a fortress.
"The home record is something we're very proud of and we'll be doing everything we can to extend it on Saturday, but we're not the only ones that should take pride in what's been happening," said Nugent, who has four goals in the Championship this season.
"The fans have been magnificent at home games this season and have played a massive part in our success, so it's a record they should all be proud of too.
"The fans were so in the mood for the Hull game that it felt like we had them out there with us. They seemed to find another gear and that helped us to do the same.
"Bristol City have been an attacking team so far this season but, with the fans behind us, both in good numbers and in good voice, we've got every chance of coming out of the traps flying and making it five out of five."
City currently have the eighth highest average attendance in the division with 20,453, but are hoping for that figure to rise tomorrow.
Brighton and Hove Albion are top with an average of 25,512.
