Lineker Backs Foxes For Promotion Push

Lineker Backs Foxes For Promotion Push

Gary Lineker has said he thinks Leicester have a genuine claim for promotion this season given our current form.

Lineker tweeted after the Bristol City game.

'Great to see Leicester at the top of the Championship, be even better to see them back in the Premier League.'

Admittedly it didn't last long after our victory over Bristol City but it should've given everyone at the club a good boost to see us within touching distance of the top spot.

Lineker continued when talking to the Leicester Mercury.

'I know it's early days, but you do need to be up there early. They are playing with confidence and that is important. Leicester seem to have ironed out their defensive errors from earlier in the season and are playing some very good football, and long may it continue.'

Be interesting to see if we can continue that form following the international break as hopefully it won't have got in the way of our momentum.
