'I shall keep pushing forward'
Leicester City must be switched on defensively if they are to turn their away form around, full-back Ritchie De Laet insists.
City are yet to pick up a point on the road and head to Middlesbrough today bidding to end a sequence of three consecutive away defeats.
City have conceded early goals in all three defeats and De Laet said they had to stop leaving themselves an uphill battle.
"We have to be on it defensively," he said.
"The last away game (at Wolves) I think they had two shots and they both went in, so we have to change that.
"We have scored in every game so that isn't the problem, so if we can keep the back door locked we will win.
"We are getting punished for every mistake at the moment, especially away. It is just one second where you don't concentrate and it is in the back of the net.
"That is where we have to improve and then take our chances at the other end.
"Our second half performances have been good, but we leave ourselves a bit to do.
"If we can get that first goal, maybe then there is not as much pressure on the strikers, and we can counter-attack like we have shown before."
De Laet admits his last away performance was not his best, as he was caught out for Wolves' second goal at Molineux, but overall he says he is settling in well at City.
He has also promised to continue his exciting forward forays, but admits he is still learning when to tell if the time is right.
"There have been ups and downs," he said.
"The Wolves game, for example, wasn't the best I have played, overall, I think I have made a decent start but I think I can improve.
"The gaffer likes me to go forward, and Paul Konchesky, but you have to pick your moments and that is what I am still learning," added De Laet.
