Kasper Schmeichel: Leicester City must not change the way they play
Leicester City must not change their approach as they go in search of their first away points of the season at Middlesbrough today, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has urged.
City have lost all three of their opening away fixtures and, through a combination of poor defending and bad luck, have conceded two goals in each game.
However, Schmeichel said City's approach to away games is spot on and they should continue to go on the offensive at the opposition's grounds.
"We approach away games in exactly the same way," said the City stopper.

"Small changes depend on the team we are playing and their style, something specific they do we have to combat, but generally we go into every game exactly the same.
"I don't know why it is, just bad luck sometimes.
"We have been a little bit silly in conceding on a couple of occasions in the first half and given ourselves a mountain to climb but also just unlucky.
"Other than that, we have been alright.
"It is just a case of cutting out those little things that put us on the back foot. That will give us a good platform to build on."
Schmeichel has only been able to keep two clean sheets so far this season, but he hailed his back four and said there was not too much he could do about any of the goals conceded.
"The defence has been brilliant," he said. "It is early days and there will be a few tiny things we can adjust. We are doing that and working hard in training.
"I am very confident playing behind the players I have in front of me. I love playing behind them because they work so hard and throw their bodies on the line for us.
"I don't think I could have done too much about the goals we have conceded. That is the way it is. As a keeper, you have to be mentally tough and not go looking for work. If you do, then that is when you are going to make mistakes."
