Oakley happy with Leicester start

17 September 2009 08:57
Leicester skipper Matt Oakley says the side are brimming with confidence following an impressive start to life back in the Championship.The Foxes only managed a 1-1 home draw against Peterborough on Tuesday but are seventh in the table. Oakley told BBC Radio Leicester: "I know we drew but I'm not worried as even when we play badly we look like we will score goals. "We're a good team, we had a successful year last year so confidence is high." So far this season Leicester have registered three wins and three draws from their opening seven league games. Manager Nigel Pearson admitted his side "struggled" in the first half against Peterborough as they fell a goal behind. But a much-improved second-half display saw them draw level through Matty Fryatt's penalty and they created a number of chances to take all the points. Oakley added: "Even in the first half when we didn't play particularly well we had good chances and the keeper made good saves. "We didn't start too well but there was a good reaction from us at half-time and we looked like the team that would go on and win. "We've got a couple of wins at home and need some wins away from home."
