Wes Morgan: Victory at Middlesbrough 'was vital for Leicester City side'
Captain Wes Morgan said it was vital that Leicester City ended their streak of away defeats with victory at Middlesbrough.
City head to Huddersfield tonight looking to build on Saturday's 2-1 victory and Morgan said the win means they travel to the John Smith's Stadium with renewed belief.
"To stop the rot away from home was important," he said.
"The last few games we didn't get the results our performances deserved, so it feels good to finally get that away win. It is three wins on the bounce as well.

"We wanted that win and the whole team has been putting their body where it hurts.
"We thought we got what we deserved. That hasn't been the case in previous away games.
"We can't get carried away so early in the season but to get these back-to-back victories is good for the team and good for morale.
"To get that winning feeling is good and the lads want to keep going and keep getting that feeling.
"If you look at our previous away performances, we have created chances and been very unlucky at times.
"The win at Middlesbrough reflects all the hard work we have been putting in recently."
Once again, City had to recover from going a goal down, but Morgan said the fact they keep bouncing back demonstrates the strength of character within the squad.
"It shows our resilience to keep going after going a goal down against the run of play.
"To come back also shows our strength of character," he added.
"We kept doing and dug out the result. To go ahead first will be a strange feeling, but maybe we will then go on and win a game comfortably.
"We look forward to the game at Huddersfield and we want to prove what we can do again. On the back of Saturday's result, we go there with confidence."
