Leicester City defender Wes Morgan has revealed that the Foxes can dig into their Championship winning experience from two years to help them in the run-in for the Premier League title. Leicester are currently seven points ahead of their nearest challengers Tottenham and need to avoid a defeat in their next six games to lift the title.
They have won their last four games 1-0, including the one against Southampton on 3 April, who have been in good form over the past few games. The difference for Leicester from the first half of the season is their brilliant defensive record, which coupled with their prolific front pairing of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, has allowed them to defend deep and attack on the counter.
The circumstances are different to what was at stake during promotion, but Morgan is confident that manager Claudio Ranieri and his men have the will and power to end the season on a high. Morgan himself has been applauded for his brilliant defensive nous this season and has been hailed to be among the best defenders in the league this season. The Jamaican is hoping that they can keep the tempo up with six games left and come out on top in what has been an incredible campaign for the Foxes.
"It was just momentum [in 2014]. We kept winning games, in fantastic form, full of confidence," Morgan said, as quoted by the Guardian. "We went into games knowing we could win and we were doing so by big margins.
"It is hard to compare that to the Premier League. The games are much tougher, and they are not as frequent. There is a lot of preparation going into games, a lot of thought. We approach games in the way to maybe stop the opposition first, then try to win in different ways.
"The experience of going up from the Championship will help us this time round. The lads are full of confidence to keep it going. We are approaching it one game at a time, not getting carried away thinking, 'If we win the next three or four games, we've done whatever'.
"We try to take it one game, right that's ticked off, then prepare for the next one. We're not thinking we need to win the next three of five. That's the way we probably looked at it in the Championship," he added.
