A Leicester City victory may bring momentary light for the club, but defeat to Nottingham Forest shall plunge the Foxes into darkness at an early stage of 2022/23.

Foxes of Leicester always try to look on the brighter side of Leicester City life, difficult as that task is presently. Though we feel it best to be candid with our supporters, who know full well the awful situation the team – and some would say the club in general, too – is in at the moment.

After a hiatus in the preliminary period of the contemporary season, Leicester get back to action on Monday, competing with fellow Premier League strugglers and east Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest. In truth, a completely possible Foxes victory may bring some momentary light to a distressed fanbase. However, defeat to Forest shall plunge the club into darkness, especially with regard to on-pitch confidence and the scrambling that should consequently transpire at LCFC headquarters.

The unfavourable outcome for LCFC would not just emerge because they are at the foot of the English top-flight table; the fact that the loss would be to a rival matters no more than bragging rights and a lost opportunity to create momentum. The true theoretical shock or wake up call derives from the reality that the Tricky Trees are currently also suffering through a terrible start to the season.

Forest sit 19th in the EPL; the Reds are definitely beatable. Although they might perhaps kick-start their campaign with a King Power Stadium triumph at the beginning of this coming week. While the former have one win so far, something Leicester are yet to achieve, their from is atrocious. If a once capable but now floundering Foxes side cannot beat promoted opposition residing in the relegation zone, a dark age may envelop the outfit.

Brendan Rodgers will have a game plan, not that many of those have worked this term in particular. The Northern Irishman’s strategy must be more flexible than in recent matches; disassociating himself with certain senior professionals in the squad isn’t helping things, with lesser personnel often featuring instead.

Along with the result, whilst avoiding cliche as much as possible, an impressive performance is necessary if Rodgers actually wishes to keep his job. His boss, chairman Khun Top Srivaddhanaprabha, will be in attendance. Top will act if Forest win and the atmosphere becomes more toxic at the ground.
