It's more than likely that mid-table mediocrity will be with Fleetwood Town until the end of the season, a disappointment for a side which rose in meteoric fashion through the none-league pyramid and into League One and which has ambitions of making it into the Championship. This promotion up to the second tier was the aim of the club's financial backers and while this may come to fruition, it is unlikely to happen at the end of 2017/18.

The Cod Army have already had to go through two rounds of this competition and they didn't do things the easy way, having to fight their way back from behind against Chorley before needing a replay to find a way past Hereford. The television cameras will be in attendance to see whether or not they can find a way past Premier League opposition on Saturday afternoon, however we're far from confident of the home side's chances.

For visitors Leicester City, this season has already been something of a rollercoaster and whilst Claude Puel was brought in to steady the ship following the dismissal of Craig Shakespeare, the Foxes have remained below par although the 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town was a notable result which will have lifted spirits somewhat ahead of this weekend's clash.

The Foxes are far off the pace as regards a European berth and this competition gives Puel a chance to add some silverware to the cabinet. Leicester eased past the likes of Derby County and Everton in last season's FA Cup before being dumped out by League One side Millwall and they will be eager to avoid a similar fate at the hands of Fleetwood Town.

The visitors have a wealth of talent at their disposal and this quality should shine through this weekend. Peel will take the competition seriously and we can expect to see a strong Leicester starting line-up at Highbury with the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Demarai Gray and Jamie Vardy certain to ask a lot of the hosts' defence.

Vardy made a huge impression when at Fleetwood Town and since leaving the Lancashire club he has become a household name with twenty appearance for the national side. He has banged in nine league goals this season and we'll be backing him to add to the scoreline against his former employers on Saturday afternoon.
