In the 2005–06 season, Leicester's dismal form continued which saw some fans call for Levein's resignation as the team were near the bottom of the table after ten matches, and fell into the relegation zone in January, ultimately leading to his sacking on Wednesday 25 January 2006, despite a 3–2 FA Cup win over Premiership club Tottenham just 17 days earlier.
After winning three out of four games as caretaker manager and moving the club five places up the league, Rob Kelly was appointed to see out the rest of the season. Kelly steered Leicester to safety and in April 2006 was given the manager's job on a permanent basis. Jim McCahill retired as chairman on 1 June 2006 and was replaced by Andrew Taylor.
Another poor season saw Leicester struggle near the foot of the Championship table. Manager Rob Kelly was sacked after a 3-0 defeat at Plymouth Argyle and replaced by former Norwich City boss Nigel Worthington, who steered the Foxes to safety. Worthington expressed an interest in becoming permanent manager, but instead the club appointed Milton Keynes Dons manager Martin Allen as manager.
