Darren Ferguson: Insists Peterborough hold 'no fear' about traveling to Leicester on the opening day of the Championship season
Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson insists his side will travel to Leicester with 'no fear' after they were paired with the Foxes on the opening day of the Championship season.
The Posh, who finished 18th in the Championship last campaign, travel to the King Power Stadium on Saturday August 18 before home matches against Millwall and Leeds the following week.
It should prove to be a tough test for Peterborough as Leicester are among the favourites for promotion this year and have already dipped into the transfer market to strengthen their squad.
Ferguson, however, is not daunted by the first-day trip and is confident his players can get a positive result.
"We know Leicester are one of the big teams in this division and they and Cardiff City will be spending money during the summer," he told the club's official website.
"They have brought in three players I know well. Jamie Vardy is somebody is somebody we were interested in and Ritchie De Laet and Matty James have come from Manchester United.
"However, we'll go there with no fear. We took four points off Leicester last season and performed well, so we can go there with confidence.
"You have to play everyone at some point and we will be looking to get off to a good start."
