Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has warned Leicester will face a tougher assignment in the npower Championship next season as the Foxes target a return to the top flight.

Huddersfield and Peterborough contest the League One play-off final at Old Trafford on Sunday to decide who joins promoted duo Brighton and Southampton in the second tier, while West Ham, Blackpool and Carling Cup winners Birmingham drop down from the Barclays Premier League.

"There are teams coming up with big ambitions like Southampton and Brighton, and then you have big clubs like Birmingham and West Ham coming down," Eriksson said on Leicester's official website.

"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.

"If you look at the clubs in this league, how many of them have expectations to reach the Premier League? Half of them, maybe even more.

"It will be good to be under pressure. We keep telling people what our target is and it does not change."
