Leicester City fans are set to flock to King Power stadium for Brighton clash
Leicester City are expecting a bumper crowd for tonight's visit of Brighton (7.45) after thousands of fans snapped up discounted tickets.
The attendance is set to be the biggest of the season, topping the 23,863 for the opening-day victory against Peterborough.
The game has been designated the Fans' Fixture and tickets are priced from just £15 for adults.
City boss Nigel Pearson said it was important for clubs to ease the financial burden on supporters during the current tough economic circumstances, and to appreciate their unwavering support.

"It has been noticeable this year that there has been a drop-off in attendances," he said.
"The finances are going to have quite a big impact on that. That is why I think it is important for clubs to try to make games attractive for our fans to remain with us.
"Ultimately, you have to be playing winning football, but if you are not then the fans want to see that their club cares about them. It is important to show that.
"These are difficult times for people in this country in financial terms, and have been for a while now. So it is no surprise that there has been a drop-off."
Tickets for tonight's game are priced from £15 for adults, £10 for under-22s and £5 for under-12s. Admission for under-eights will be free in the Family Stand and £1 in all other public areas.
City have asked fans to arrive early tonight due to the number of people collecting tickets.
