Oakley daring to believe

Published Add your comment

Captain Matt Oakley admits Leicester are beginning to believe they can win promotion to the Premier League.

Nigel Pearson's side have made a fine start to life back in the Championship and find themselves in the play-off places.

"The league is tight and if we have a bad month we could be in midtable somewhere but on the other hand, one good month could put us top of the table," said Oakley.

"If you'd have told us at the start of the season we would be in sixth place in November then some of the lads in the team wouldn't have believed you. Nigel Pearson doesn't ever think too far ahead which keeps us grounded but there is a growing confidence.

"If you get the young lads aiming high then that helps the team along and they are starting to believe that promotion could happen."
