It took a point from their last match of the season to keep Leicester City safe from relegation but they played some of their best football in getting to their first FA Cup final. Sadly though the Wembley final was their 10th match in April and having picked up some serious injuries in the preceding 9 matches a weakened side were beaten 3-1 by Wolves in the final.
