Spirit in Leicester City squad is sky-high, says Andy King
Midfielder Andy King said Leicester City will head to Ipswich on Saturday full of confidence after their excellent display and victory over Blackburn.
City had not won in four games in all competitions until Rovers visited the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.
But they returned to form with an excellent display to win 3-0, which has put them back in touch with the top two in the Championship.
City have not won on their last four visits to Portman Road, but thumped the Tractor Boys 6-0 earlier in the season on home soil.

After Tuesday's victory against Rovers, which was capped by King's late goal, City will be bristling with confidence on Saturday.
"For Tuesday's game to go as well as it did gives us real confidence and a spring in our step going into the weekend," said King.
"It was massively important to get back into the mix for that race for second spot, and to end the bad run we had been on.
"We played outstandingly well, especially in the first half. That was the best we have played for a while.
"You could see the boys weren't short of confidence, the way we were playing it around. It was a big win.
"It shows the team spirit that we haven't let recent results affect us, we didn't drop our heads and we knew if we kept playing the way we can and stick together, then the wins would start coming again."
King has been in excellent form since returning to the side at Blackpool last Saturday, and he admits he feels his all-round game is getting better.
King is renowned for his scoring ability from midfield – his goal on Tuesday was his fifth of the season – but he is contributing much more in all areas.
"I have been pleased to come back into the team and to play well," he said.
"I was pleased with my performance (against Blackburn) and to score was very pleasing. Hopefully, I can keep that going until the end of the season.
"I think every player will add more aspects to their game as they get older. I have played more than 200 games now for Leicester, which is a feat I am very proud of.
"If I can help guide this team into the Premier League that would also be a great honour.
"We have to take each game as it comes but, if we play as we did on Tuesday and stick together, I am sure the wins will keep coming."
