Foxes hunt for points

It was a difficult weekend for Leicester City with all their promotion rivals apart from 'Boro winning and the Foxes now in fifth place. They are seeking to replicate the good form of January when they won five games out of six, a record spoilt more recently by a defeat by Peterborough and a home defeat to Huddersfield in the FA Cup: Foxes

They are looking to collect three easy points when they face Charlton at the King Power stadium aka the Crisp Bowl tomorrow night. Although I missed that game, most people thought were quite fortunate to beat them 2-1 at home.

However, Leicester do not always follow the script. Like real life foxes, they can go off at a tangent. A friend of mine is a keen Leicester supporter, having grown up in Weymouth, and her tweets when the Foxes are playing often display frustration at their inconsistency. So there may be a glimmer of hope, although our fundamental problem is that apart from Chris Solly we do not have a single player who is consistently of Championship standard.

Chris Powell has said that morale in the squad is high, but has urged them to keep believing to avoid being sucked into a relegation struggle: Powell
