Win can kick-start our season, says Leicester City defender Sean St Ledger
Defender Sean St Ledger believes the victory against Championship leaders Blackpool on Saturday could kick-start Leicester City's season.
The Republic of Ireland international made his first league appearance of the campaign after missing pre-season through injury.
He said morale in the City camp was high after the 1-0 victory against a Blackpool side that had won all three of their opening matches, scoring 10 goals into the bargain and conceding just one.
"There was a good buzz in the changing rooms afterwards," said St Ledger.

"Hopefully, that will now kick-start our season.
"It was a good win against a very good side. You would expect them to be looking for an automatic or play-off promotion place.
"I thought we deserved the win.
"We created plenty of chances and I don't think they gave us too many problems."
St Ledger added: "Towards the end they threw people forward, and that was always going to be the case."
St Ledger hurt his knee during pre-season but made his comeback in the 4-2 Capital One Cup defeat to Burton Albion last Tuesday.
He had to be drafted into the starting line-up at the last minute after Ritchie De Laet picked up an injury in the warm-up, and he admits he is not quite back to full fitness himself.
"It was good to be back in action," said St Ledger, who has joined up with the Republic of Ireland squad this week for World Cup qualifying matches.
"It was just great to be named in the squad on Friday. You always say you have to be prepared for the unusual, and it is pretty rare that someone pulls up in the warm-up.
"But it was great to be back involved.
"It is never nice to miss pre-season because it can set you back double.
"The boys are all ahead of me in terms of fitness.
"I am a pretty fit lad anyway, so it is not the end of the world. The tempo of the game against Blackpool will have done me good.
"I think it will take a few more games and it would be silly for me to say after one 60 minutes that I am match-fit.
"I will need to do more match fitness."
