Experience in the dressing room
Contesting their first ever season in England's third division, the Foxes secured the services of Chris Powell, initially on a six-month contract.
A new face in the dugout
Nigel Pearson takes charge of his first match as Leicester City manager. The Foxes win 2-0 against MK Dons at King Power Stadium, and Pearson eventually leads his side to the League 1 title.
Off the mark
City began 2008/09 with a 2-0 victory over MK Dons. It was the first of 27 triumphs in League 1 that term, with Matty Fryatt playing a huge part in the Club's success.
Lloyd Dyer's brace in a 4-0 success at Cheltenham Town saw the Foxes record a third win from their opening four League 1 fixtures. Later in the season, they beat Cheltenham by the same scoreline at King Power Stadium.

Four in a row
This 3-2 win at Huddersfield Town, thanks to Matty Fryatt's double and a 90th-minute winner from Lloyd Dyer, made it four League 1 wins on the spin across September and October as City maintained their title challenge.
The start of something special
A member of the Blue Army celebrates City's late 2-1 success against Bristol Rovers on 1 November, 2008 - the beginning of an incredible sequence of 23 League 1 games unbeaten. The run did not end until March.
The 100 club
Matty Fryatt marks his 100th game for the Football Club with a special edition 'Fryatt 100' printed shirt. The striker went on to score 32 times in all competitions in 2008/09.
City beat Peterborough United 4-0 on 20 December, 2008 thanks to an own goal from Craig Morgan, and efforts from the usual suspects - Lloyd Dyer, Andy King and Steve Howard. Peterborough were the closest challengers to Leicester, and finished second in the division come May.
The streak concludes
The final game of City's 23-match unbeaten run resulted in a 4-0 win over Cheltenham. Martin Allen made a return to King Power Stadium, this time in the opposition dugout, but his side were well beaten after goals from Steve Howard, Matty Fryatt, Tom Cleverley and Matt Oakley.
The brink of promotion
Steve Howard's 90th-minute winner against Leeds United meant City needed just two points from their remaining three matches to guarantee promotion to the Championship. They secured seven and finished top of the division by seven points.
League 1 champions
Nigel Pearson celebrates with his backroom staff after a 2-0 victory at Southend United confirms Leicester City as 2008/09 League 1 champions.
