Captain Morgan Ready For The Fight

11 April 2013 10:31
Leicester City's 'Captain Fantastic' is ready to help his side realise their promotion potential as they prepare for a tough run-in to the end of the season, starting with the visit of Birmingham City tomorrow night.

With just five matches remaining for the Foxes to resurrect their hopes of promotion, captain Morgan is confident that his team is capable of recapturing the form that sent them soaring up the Championship table earlier in the season.

Morgan said: "We have done tremendously this season.

"Obviously we have stuttered over the last couple of months, but we just have to pick ourselves up.

"There will be ups and downs all through a season. We are on a down at the moment but we have to look at the games we have left and the points available, and the big prize at the end of it.

"It is a young side and my job as captain is to keep them going as best I can, then we will see what happens.

"It has been tough the last few weeks and we haven't picked up the points we should have.

"It has been a testing time for the whole team, but I think, as a group, we know our capabilities and know how good we can be. We just have to find that form again." The 29-year-old added.

After tomorrow night’s visit of Birmingham City, the Foxes face four of their play-off rivals, including a final day visit to Nottingham Forrest; a club where Morgan spent 13 years before his move to Leicester last year.

Morgan added: "It is going to be a tough run-in looking at our fixtures but we seem to do better against the teams up there at the top. They are also under pressure to get points."

Indeed all teams around the play-off places will be under enormous pressure as we reach the climax of what has been a roller coaster season for most; let’s just hope that the Foxes can shake of their nerves and return to winning ways, before it is too late. If they can, their promotion dream will remain very much alive.
