Paul Konchesky targets quick return to winning ways for Leicester City
Leicester City are looking to bounce back from defeat as soon as possible, says defender Paul Konchesky.
Following their first home defeat of the Championship season when they lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace last weekend, City have the chance to get back to winning ways when they travel to Watford tomorrow.
The left-back has been a key figure in City's impressive start to their league campaign, which saw them go top of the table after winning five games on the bounce before the Palace defeat, coupled with Cardiff's win, saw them drop back into second spot.
"We're looking to bounce back as soon as possible," said the 31-year-old.

"It was a defeat we didn't want, but that happens to the best of them – we just need to get back to winning ways and, hopefully, that will start this weekend.
"You can't go through the season not losing games. It's one we didn't want to lose, you expect to get at least a point at home but it wasn't to be.
"We know we have to bounce back and we have to do that as quickly as possible.
"It's another game on tomorrow so we need to get all three points."
The former England international said City manager Nigel Pearson does not need to instil any confidence in the side to get the three points against Watford.
"The confidence is high anyway," said Konchesky.
"Losing games is part of football, but we have got a strong bunch of characters here and we all stick together.
"We're good enough to keep winning games, so we've got to put that (Palace) behind us and go again tomorrow.
"We've got to be confident, we know we need to do it, we want to do it and, hopefully, the three points will come."
Despite conceding two set-piece goals against Palace, City's defence has looked assured, with the side having kept three clean sheets out of four before last weekend.
Konchesky, who has started in all 13 of City's Championship fixtures this season, said his side's back four has really started to settle.
"The more games you play together, the more you get used to each other and you get more confidence," he said.
"Especially with Kasper (Schmeichel, goalkeeper) behind us, we're talking a lot.
"It's a solid back four, very experienced. We all know what we are doing and we are very settled."
