We've moved on from that dismal cup defeat, says Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater
Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater has said the squad have already moved on from Tuesday's dismal defeat against Burton Albion.
City's 4-2 exit from the Capital One Cup incensed manager Nigel Pearson.
But Drinkwater, who was rested for the visit of the Brewers, said the inquest had finished and they were now focused on the visit of Blackpool tomorrow.
"That game has to be put to bed now, and it has been," he said.

"We have a very important game coming up on Saturday now, so we are just looking forward to that.
"The gaffer is good at moving on to the next game and making sure what we do is right. It was a clear message from the manager.
"There is no point dwelling on bad results or performances.
"It is all about the next game and making sure we get the right performance."
Drinkwater said City had been generally pleased with their performances so far this season, despite the return of just three points from three games.
"Results don't speak for those performances," he said. "We have out-worked and out-played a lot of the opposition, except of course on Tuesday night.
"The results will start coming, I am sure.
"I am happy with the how the team is doing and we just need to start getting the three points. We are playing well as a unit at the moment and we are clicking. We just need to keep doing what we have been doing.
"Every team we have come up against we have beaten them on the pitch, but not in the scoreline.
"We need to change that and I am sure the points will start coming."
City face a Blackpool side that has started the campaign in fine form, winning their opening three games and thrashing Ipswich 6-0 in their last fixture.
"Blackpool are a good team," said Drinkwater.
"They have some good players who are on form. They are top of the table with a 100 per cent record but it is about us putting our game on to them.
"Thomas Ince is a good player. He is on fire. We are not going to man-mark anyone. We like to play our game. But he is a threat and we need to be aware of him."
