Town will go for it against the best team in the Championship by a mile says boss
Leicester sit eight points clear of second placed Burnley after a midweek draw at east midlands rivals Nottingham Forest saw them stretch their unbeaten League run to 12 games, which includes a club record nine successive wins.
“I was at the Forest game in midweek and Leicester went in front through a bizarre goal but they were controlling the game at the time,” Mick told Ipswich Player.
“Then Forest scored twice, also through bizarre goals. Konchesky got sent-off so they were down to 10 men for the last half an hour but you could see them getting back into the game and they did that.
“I had a Forest fan in my ear all game. He was saying ‘Leicester are not that good. How many of their players will play in the Premier League?’ I rolled off six or seven names without even thinking about it.
“They have got good players and they are a really good team. They are the best team in the Championship by a mile.
“They just missed out last season in the Play-Offs but they have got stronger. Nigel Pearson [Leicester boss] has done a terrific job there. He had to trim down their squad and change things around a bit but he’s had them going in the right direction for a while and they will go up this season.
“So we know we face a big challenge but they played in midweek and we’ve got to look to take advantage of that. We won’t be sitting back and letting them settle. We will be going for it.”
