Lions focus is on The Foxes
Lions boss Kenny Jackett and his players returned to training today, facing their first Monday morning session following a defeat in 11 weeks.
Saturday's 3-0 loss at Ipswich Town brought an end to a fantastic unbeaten run stretching back to late September, and also saw The Lions concede their first goals in five matches.
Despite having an early Chris Wood goal chalked off for off-side and being thwarted by the heroics of Ipswich keeper Stephen Henderson in the first half, it was the home side who edged into a 1-0 half-time lead courtesy of DJ Campbell's opener.
"The start of the second half was a poor one from our point of view, which was key in terms of how the match played out,” reflected boss Kenny.
“We conceded two poor goals and that took the game away from us then.
“I understand it was 3-0 but it was a very tight game. Games like these can go either way very easily – but we have been winning those type of games lately.
We have been the ones with the dominating centre-backs and we have had the forwards that have been causing all the problems.
Ipswich found an intensity with over 17,000 people behind them and we needed that in the first-half to get something to build on.
But we kept going and kept battling but we couldn’t quite find the breakthrough – even at the end when substitute Dany N’Guessan was in on goal their keeper saved well again.
From our point of view we just couldn’t find that strike that would have sparked us and got us going.”
Despite Saturday's defeat The Lions only remain outside the Play-Off places on goal difference to Watford, and have an opportunity to keep the pressure on at the top this Saturday when fifth-placed Leicester City visit The Den.
