Enzo warns City about the intensity of the promotion battle with Leeds United.

Leicester City have lost five of their previous nine Championship matches, but they still sit top of the Championship heading into the business end of the season.

If Enzo Maresca is concerned about Leicester City’s uneven play in their pursuit for automatic promotion alongside Leeds United and Ipswich Town, he keeps it quiet. Last night, the Foxes suffered their fifth defeat in nine games, losing 1-0 away to Millwall.

Leicester remain top of the table after drawing 0-0 at home against Sunderland. However, if Ipswich Town defeats Watford this evening, they will be able to knock Maresca’s side off their perch.

Maresca has instructed his players to pay little heed to the Championship table as we approach the closing stretch. The Italian added, “I’m serious; if you see the table yesterday, tonight, and again in two days, you’ll go insane. You understand that in order to win games, you must think about each one separately. That is it.

“I believe the last eight or ten games have been similar for all of the clubs in terms of struggling a little more because all of the opponents are playing for a goal, to survive, to be promoted, or to make the play-offs. So each club is competing for a significant goal.

“The intensity is increased, and we’ve already played about 50 games. It is a problem for all of the clubs, not just ours. In the end, everyone is struggling a little more.

The Foxes return to play on Friday evening, when they face relegation-threatened Plymouth Argyle. Following the long travel to Home Park, Leicester will focus on a key home double-header against West Bromwich Albion and Southampton. They are a point ahead of United, but Southampton has a game in hand over both United and Ipswich.
