Leicester City's stunning 9-0 demolition of Southampton on Friday night equalled a Premier League record and could easily have condemned Kieran O'Hara to a few sleepless nights. So it was perhaps for the best that Burton Albion's preparations for the visit of Brendan Rodgers's upwardly mobile team suffered a technical hitch. "We were in our hotel the night before our game against Blackpool on Saturday and unfortunately they didn't have Sky. Maybe that was a good thing that we weren't able to watch Leicester," recalls O'Hara, the Burton goalkeeper signed on loan from Manchester United. "I was following the updates on Twitter and couldn't believe it when the goals were flying in. Leicester are a really strong force in the Premier League and have picked up under Brendan Rodgers.
But every game is different and we just focus on ourselves, we can't worry about anyone else." O'Hara, 23, will undoubtedly be a busy man on Tuesday night and is the goalkeeper charged with trying to stop Leicester after their mauling of the Saints, which included hat-tricks from Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez. With Rodgers not expected to make many changes to his team, in his pursuit of cup glory, this fourth-round tie could be a daunting prospect for the Brewers, who currently sit 13th in League One.
