Leicester in confident mood ahead of Leeds clash says midfielder Danny Drinkwater
Leicester will head to Leeds tonight flying high in the table and with confidence to match, according to midfielder Danny Drinkwater.
The Foxes are three points behind second-placed Crystal Palace and four off leaders Cardiff after back-to-back victories over Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday in which they scored eight goals and conceded none.
Drinkwater told http://www.lcfc.com: "If we can go to places like Hillsborough and produce results in key games then it's going to stand us in good stead.
"Now we move on to Leeds, which is always going to be a big game. We want to go there and win, but then I don't think we'll go anywhere this season looking for a draw.
"The highlight for me is that we've kept two clean sheets in a row, which is a big plus.
"The team's doing well, everyone is playing well and every time we go out there we're producing good team performances. That's what will keep us picking up the points."
Cardiff retook top spot in the table on Saturday and they travel to mid-table Derby while Palace will look to bounce back from defeat at Leeds, Ian Holloway's first in charge, when they meet fellow high-fliers Hull.
Fourth-placed Middlesbrough host Huddersfield while Brighton, in eighth, will look to climb back into the play-off places with victory over struggling Bristol City.
The form team in the league are Millwall, who have climbed from the bottom three into the top six over the last two months with an unbeaten run of 11 matches and five wins from their last six games.
The Lions' opponents tonight are Wolves, who are heading in the opposite direction after picking up only three points out of 24, and boss Stale Solbakken believes his side are showing too much fear.
He told the Birmingham Mail: "All in all our performances at home have been okay but of course we need to pick up points very soon now. And that's not only one but three.
"We have a home game here and that becomes very important for us now. We are all concerned about our recent run and it's not an easy position to be in. You could see in the second half (against Nottingham Forest) that at times we were scared and frustrated.
"It is important that we don't do that and carry on believing and don't let our heads drop. We have to get rid of any nervousness because that won't help."
Bottom side Peterborough, who ended a four-match losing run with a draw against second-bottom Ipswich on Saturday, travel to Charlton with Ipswich hosting Forest.
In other matches, Barnsley face Burnley, Wednesday meet Watford and Birmingham travel to Blackpool. Blackburn host local rivals Bolton tomorrow night.
