Losses on two fronts a concern for Foxes.

After defeat at QPR and losing to Norwich The Foxes have slumped to 10th in the table and now stand seven points of a play-off place. Eriksson’s team have gained only one point from 12 and this is worrying the Swede, who after the Norwich game told lcfc.com: “We suffered badly from a crazy 15 minutes at the start of the second-half. If you do that then you are asking for a defeat. We had no energy and we were second to every ball. What we must now decide is whether we want to finish the season strongly, or whether we play in this way.”

Eriksson continues to talk positively about promotion and still feels The Foxes can do it. “I believe that we have what it takes and I know we can do it, but we must now show that, starting with Scunthorpe on Saturday.”

Scunthorpe are in a relegation battle and may still prove a test for the East Midlands team, even if The Iron have never beaten The Foxes.

Front man Martyn Waghorn feels that the match at Glanford Park will be an uncompromising game, telling Foxes Player: “The pitch won’t be great, the stands are very close to the pitch and it can be pretty hostile so it’s a different challenge. We’ve just got to keep plugging away, starting at Scunthorpe on Saturday and I think we can do the business.”

Further concern at the Walkers Stadium will be the announcement of increased losses of £7.5 million for the financial year ending May 2010. Chief Executive Lee Hoos told the club’s website: “Though a second successive promotion ultimately proved beyond our reach, our competitive position going into the final stages of the current campaign shows that these efforts were not in vain. With the club now under new ownership, that momentum can now truly be maximised as we seek to achieve our ambition of winning promotion to the Premier League.”
