Leicester City's Andy King hoping history will repeat itself at Peterborough United
Andy King hopes a victory today at London Road can help Leicester City's promotion charge – just as it did when they reached the Championship play-offs three season ago.
City claimed a 2-1 victory over Peterborough United, courtesy of a King winner, in 2010, which helped them finish their campaign with five consecutive victories to cement their play-off spot.
While King admits there is a lot longer to go, with 17 league games remaining, he said a repeat of that victory would keep their promotion push on track.
"We have lost there in the past, but we also won there the season we reached the play-offs and that win kicked us on that season," he said.

"If we can do that again and keep this winning run going then that should keep us in the top two.
"They are going to put up a good scrap and I think they have played some good football at times. They have some good players and are not to be taken lightly.
"The way they play is quite expansive. They like to pass the ball and score goals, but if we can keep the back door shut, which we have been able to do a lot this season, with the fire power we have we can really cause them problems."
The trip to London Road triggered the start of a hectic schedule for City, in which they face nine games in five weeks. But King said City are capable of enjoying another month similar to January, in which they recorded a 100 per cent league record.
The Wales international said that would put them in a great position for the final sprint for the automatic promotion spots. "There are a lot of Saturday and Tuesday games coming up but, with that, there are lots of opportunities to pick up points," he said.
"If we can have a run like we had during January then we are going to be in a really strong position come the end of February.
"It is too early to judge where we are going to finish at this stage as we have 17 games left but, as you start getting down to 10 games, then we are on the final sprint.
"As long as we are in a position to kick on and fight for those top-two spots then we will have a really good chance."
