Paul Konchesky hails Leicester City's team spirit
Defender Paul Konchesky has hailed Leicester City's team spirit.
City have looked more of a unit this season, with the rumours of rifts and tifts that plagued the morale of the side last year apparently a thing of the past.
Konchesky said he believes that City's last-gasp equaliser against Barnsley last Saturday could be put down to the side's togetherness and desire to play for each other right to the end.
"I think we've stuck together a lot more," said Konchesky. "When we do concede goals or start losing, we always think we've got a chance to get back into the game.

"That was proved against Barnsley. We had a lot of chances but it wasn't going in for us and we went to the 90th minute. If it takes that long to win games, or draw games, then we'll do it. You could see the team spirit we had.
"You can see we all stick together, no matter who is in the side, and we are together as a team and, hopefully, that will get us through."
The former England international said manager Nigel Pearson can take a lot of the credit for instilling such a strong team spirit.
"Obviously it was hard him coming in when he did last season, changing what he wanted to change," said Konchesky. "But he's had all summer and all season to do that and get across what he wants to do and I think the boys have taken to it. I think you can see that on and off the pitch that we're a good unit."
Togetherness is something City will have to draw upon this afternoon when they travel to Millwall to face a side that have lost just once in their last 14 games and are unbeaten in six on their own turf.
"It's going to be very tough," he said. "It's never easy going to Millwall. It's not a nice place to go either.
"We know they're big and strong, they like to play forward quickly and we've got to be able to deal with that and maybe break them up."
