Why Martyn Waghorn is expecting more than a few Leicester City goals
Leicester City feel they are going to score goals every time they step out at the King Power Stadium, striker Martyn Waghorn has said.
City, who have scored 10 goals in their last two homes games, entertain Barnsley on Saturday and Waghorn said City's confidence was sky-high after the 6-0 drubbing of Ipswich and last Saturday's 4-1 victory over Derby County.
City have the best goal difference in the Championship and Waghorn scored his second goal of the season on Saturday.
He celebrated by putting the match ball up his shirt and sticking his thumb in his mouth in a tribute to his pregnant girlfriend.

Waghorn said: "We are playing some good football at the minute and, at home, it seems we have a lot of confidence and are playing well," he said.
"It shows how far we have come as a team from the start of the season, when we were playing well but not getting the results.
"We fancy our chances against anyone and are playing some great stuff.
"Attacking-wise, we are fantastic going forward and we always feel like we are going to create chances and score goals.
"The confidence and team spirit has led to the good performances at home and we want to build on it.
"We are playing some great attacking football with the quality we have in attack, but we have security and quality at the back as well, which gives us confidence to attack and play some good football."
On a personal note, Waghorn could have been well on his way to double figures in recent weeks but has been frustrated by the woodwork on several occasions, but he is confident the goals will flow for him.
"I am happy with my performances but obviously I wanted a few more goals," he said.
"On Saturday, the keeper has pulled off a few saves. But as long as we get the three points that is the main thing.
"I am enjoying my football at the minute. If I can keep improving and get a couple of goals that would be good but the team is playing well.
"I think it is four times in the last five games I have hit the woodwork. It is just one of those things. But I am getting into positions and creating the chances. Hopefully, I can get a few more goals next time.
"I was pleased with the finish. I am enjoying my football and feel composed in front of goal.
"I am not a prolific goalscorer but when I get the chances, hopefully, I will get a few more goals.
"I am getting more confident with every game I play."
