History of the Leicester City v Newcastle United fixture

Newcastle Utd. travel to take on Leicester City at Walkers Stadium at tea-time on Saturday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Magpies will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 31 and win only 11 of the 55 games.

The last time the two teams met at Leicester City was back in December 2003, over five years ago, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Premiership match.
