Championship Will Be Tougher Next Season

Championship Will Be Tougher Next Season

Sven-Goran Eriksson has said that he expects the Championship to be far tougher next season, which means The Foxes will definitely have to be at their best to ensure promotion.

Speaking to lcfc.com the manager explained that competition for the top spots next season will be tougher with Birmingham, West Ham and Blackpool all looking for a return at the first time of asking to the Premiership, let alone the half a dozen or so clubs already in the Championship who harbour promotional dreams.

'There are teams coming up with big ambitions like Southampton and Brighton and then you have big, big clubs like West Ham coming down. It will be more difficult. It will be tougher next season but that is good for the standard of the football. We know it and we have to act if we want the chance to be promoted.'

Eriksson also adds that as far as he's concerned the increased pressure that the additional competition will bring, can only be good for our squad because if they want to gain promotion and survive in the Premiership they'll have to learn to cope with the pressure, so the sooner they show they can the better for all concerned.

'It is good to be under pressure, we keep telling people what our target is and it does not change.'
