David Nugent warns Leicester City team-mates about being complacent
David Nugent has urged Leicester City not to become complacent now they are back in the automatic promotion places.
The striker said City must learn from what happened the last time City reached the top two, in October.
A sequence of five consecutive victories saw them jump from 16th to second, and they then went top of the league with a draw at Birmingham City.
However, City then went four games without a victory and slipped back into the play-off places.
Nugent blamed that on complacency.
City entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday night, looking to cement their place in the top two and Nugent said City had learned a lesson.
"We had a run in the league earlier this season and got to the top, but we didn't stay there," said Nugent, who has scored 13 goals so far this season.
"We can't become complacent. It is up to us to stay there this time.
"I hope we have learned from that. We did struggle a little bit after getting there last time.
"Once you are there, you automatically think you are going to remain there forever. We had a bad run and didn't win in four.
"We have done so well to catch up again. Hopefully, we can stay there this time," added Nugent.
City went into second place courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough at the King Power Stadium in their last league outing, but Nugent doesn't want a repeat of the pre-match preparations.
Nugent was one of a number of players who had to abandon their cars and jog to the stadium because of heavy snow.
"I hate being late, there is nothing worse," he said.
"I left my car 25 minutes away and jogged in. I met Marko (Futacs) on the way, he was jogging as well. We were both jogging in. We got there in the end.
"Anthony (Knockaert) jogged from the train station and Matty James jogged from the KFC on Narborough Road. It was crazy but we managed to all get to the ground and we won the game.
"It was quite an eventful evening, but we don't want a repeat."
