Kasper Schmeichel says Leicester City can still get automatic promotion
Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has warned people not to write off Leicester City's chances of grabbing an automatic promotion place.
City remain eight points adrift of second spot with 11 games to go after Tuesday night's home draw with Leeds, but Schmeichel said City can still claw back the deficit and put pressure on the sides above them.
After tomorrow's visit of Sheffield Wednesday, City have still to face three of the four sides currently above them and have their last game in hand away at Cardiff City on Tuesday night.
Schmeichel thinks it is all still to play for. "We just need to get that little spark back we had," he said.

"How we do that I am not sure but we have the players to do that.
"I think we are in a decent position still because there are teams above us now who might be under pressure to stay there. Maybe that can work to our advantage.
"I am hoping we can make a surge but it is an unpredictable league. We hope some of those teams drop points. We are playing some of those teams so we can take points off them.
"There is still all to play for. We have a game in hand.
"I would say don't write us off yet, that's for sure. The quality we have got we are still in with a very good shout."
City looked to be heading towards a disappointing defeat on Tuesday until Michael Keane popped up with an equaliser in the fourth minute of added time, and Schmeichel hopes that provides the spark they need.
"Who knows, perhaps that equaliser could be the turning point," he said.
"You have to hope. Let's hope that sparks us back to winning ways.
"The way the second half progressed we have to say that is a good point, but we are still disappointed because the first goal is vital in the Championship.
"If we had scored first we would probably have gone on to win it. Leeds got the first goal and if you pick the positives out we kept going right to the death.
"That spirit is important and it is vital you get something out of games at this stage of the season. We got that, which on reflection we can be happy with."
