Sven's pride in Foxes

Sven-Goran Eriksson voiced his delight after his Leicester City side overcame high-flying Swansea to notch back-to-back wins for only the second time this season.Leicester opened the scoring on six minutes when Bruno Berner nodded home from close range after Swansea failed to clear a corner.Swansea were level on 12 minutes through a Scott Sinclair thunderbolt from 20 yards but Leicester's winner arrived on 43 minutes when Darius Vassell tapped in after the keeper had parried Michael Morrison's header from another Paul Gallagher corner.Eriksson said: "It was a big win against a very good football team. They are physically strong, well organised, aggressive and they play the ball very well. So it was a big win for us."I am happy and proud of the players. They stood up to them physically, matched them and scored two goals."
