Sean St Ledger says Leicester City win at Middlesbrough would boost promotion chances

Victory at the Riverside could see Nigel Pearson's men move into the automatic promotion places.
City are eighth in the Championship table following back-to-back home victories and sit just two points behind Huddersfield Town in second place.
A first away win at St Ledger's former club Middlesbrough, coupled with other results going their way, would could see them overtake Rovers.

St Ledger said that even though it was early in the season it would be a psychological boost.
"This league is all about winning games and we are eighth now," said the 27-year-old Republic of Ireland international.
"If we win on Saturday, we could go second. If you don't want to do that then you shouldn't be in football. It would be a major morale boost if we can do that.
"Boro had a great win against Blackburn. It is always tough at the Riverside but I think we can go there and get the points. If we start well, and things don't go well for them in the first half, the fans can get on their backs pretty quickly.
"If we can keep it tight and, with the midfielders and strikers we have got, we are fully confident of scoring goals."
