Victories and goals will come – Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel
If Leicester City remain positive and keep believing in what they are doing the goals and victories will come, insists Kasper Schmeichel.
City's goalless draw at Hull City on Boxing Day meant they have now won just one of their last six games and have failed to score in their last three fixtures.
However, Schmeichel said it was only bad luck and some inspired goalkeeping that has denied them more points.
He said: "We have been coming up against keepers who save everything you throw at them so, it might be frustrating, there is nothing else we can do other than what we have been doing.

"We have to keep knocking on that door, keep trying to open up the defences and keep doing what we have been doing.
"I can't remember how many times we have hit the bar and post. It will come. If we keep being positive and keep believing it will come.
"Defensively against Hull we were good and up front we were unlucky.
"I can't remember how many times we have come away saying their keeper has had a great game, and he has again."
While City have found goals hard to come by in recent games, City maintained the best defensive record in the division with their ninth clean sheet of the campaign, and Schmeichel hailed his defence for putting their bodies on the line, particularly Ritchie De Laet who scrambled Aluko's shot off the line.
"Defensively, we were very happy and I have been extremely happy with the players in front of me all season," he added.
"They have put their bodies on the line and have been great. It is a real pleasure to play behind players like that and they have the same drive I have to keep clean sheets.
"As a goalkeeper that is very important."
