- Leicester City's Jonny Evans previews Saturday's visit of Huddersfield Town (3pm BST kick-off)
- The Foxes can climb back into the Premier League's top half with a victory
- Evans says City are determined to continue their strong form at King Power Stadium
- A defeat by Liverpool earlier this month is the only reverse suffered at home this term
Following last weekend’s reverse at AFC Bournemouth, the Foxes will be glad to return to the comforts of home as they strive to return to the top half of the Premier League.
“Home games are huge, I think in the Premier League, home form is really important, and it’s a fantastic place to play at King Power Stadium,” Evans told LCFC TV.

“The fans, everything about it, the pitch as well, it’s great... so it’s up to us to capitalise on that.
“Everyone likes to talk about making your home ground a fortress and we want teams to be coming to us afraid to play.
“The performances, especially against Liverpool, have been very good as well so hopefully we can push that on and continue to have more performances like that.”
David Wagner’s Huddersfield, meanwhile, are likely to be tough opposition for Leicester – something Evans is certain of as preparations continue for the fixture this weekend.
It’s going to be an open, high-paced game and they’ve also made one or two additions so we’re going to have to study hard to make sure that we’re well prepared for that match.Jonny Evans LCFC TV
“The manager there has brought them up into the Premier League and they stayed up last year,” the 30-year-old centre back added.
“They were impressive at times, they seem very organised and well structured, and they like to press teams.
“It’s going to be an open, high-paced game and they’ve also made one or two additions so we’re going to have to study hard to make sure that we’re well prepared for that match.”
