Following Leicester’s relegation on Sunday from the Premier League, the 2023/2024 Championship season will see the return of the heated M69 derby between the Foxes and Coventry City. 

The fixture will mark the first time that the two teams have faced each other since 2012, in a game which saw Leicester come out victorious with a comfortable 2-0 win, seeing goals from Jermaine Beckford and David Nugent. 

A lot has changed since the last time the teams met, with Leicester City making history winning the Premier League, FA Cup and also having a stint in Europe. 

On the other hand, Coventry fell all the way down to League 2 in 2017 and had to fight their way back up to the second tier, which only adds to the anticipation for this ferocious Midlands derby.
