We must confirm our place - King

Andy King
Midfielder King has missed just one league game this season

Leicester City midfielder Andy King has said he hopes the Foxes can confirm their place in the Championship as soon as possible.

Leicester lead League One but, after a run of three games without a win, a poor Easter weekend could see them just one point above the play-off zone.

King told BBC Radio Leicester: "If we can get promoted as soon as possible, that's certainly what we're aiming for.

"We're in pole position, top with five games to go, it's almost ours to lose."

Leicester go to struggling Hereford United on Saturday and host play-off contenders Leeds on Monday.

We're all still confident in ourselves and each other and will be strong enough to get over the edge

Nigel Pearson's men could find themselves in second position for the first time since November because Peterborough, who are just two points behind them, host Cheltenham on Good Friday, a day before Leicester travel to Edgar Street.

And King still feels that the mood in the camp is positive.

He added: "We're all still confident in ourselves and each other and will be strong enough to get over the edge."
