Simpson Looking For Momentum
Leicester City right back Danny Simpson has called on the side to maintain their current run of form following last weekend's victory over Burnley.
Speaking to lcfc.com Simpson said that confidence was high in the camp following the string of recent results that returned seven points in eight days and he's looking for that to continue when we face Newcastle United next weekend.
With one defeat in the last ten, he explained.
'We want to keep it going now. It`s confidence and momentum, especially in this busy period in December. To get a point at West Ham and then two wins, it`s been a good eight days for us. We`ve got two away games coming up and they`ll be two tough games. It`ll be important to have a few days off now, because I think after that, games are every three or four days. This is our week to get ready for that run of games and hopefully we can keep this momentum going, keep pushing up the table and getting those points.'
With victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley, Leicester now sit in ninth place in the Premier League table and we are only five points shy of sixth place.
'It`s always good to get back-to-back wins, especially at home. When you`re at home, you want to use it to your advantage. They were two tough games - both teams were very different in the way that they play, but credit to the lads because it`s good to get six points in such a short space of time.'
He went on to add.
'Burnley are a completely different team to Tottenham. Burnley have changed their style this season. They`re still a bit direct, but they can play as well. It was great for the lads though, because it`s always good to get an early goal. We felt like if we got a clean sheet today, we`d win.'
