37 Years of Hurt…

Although Leicester beat Forest at the City Ground in September 2007, 3-2 in a League Cup tie, they haven’t beaten them in a League game away since January 1972…

The sides met on 22 January 1972: Forest took a first half lead through Ian Storey-Moore, who beat Peter Shilton with a volley.
Keith Weller equalised with a brillaint goal five minutes from time that saw him beat four Forest defenders before firing a shot past Jimmy Barron.
In the final minute of the game Alan Birchenall hit the winner with a shot that deflected off a defender on its way into the net.

Since then it has been an unrelentingly different story:
