Back-to-basics Irons warned of fast Foxes start

JarvoMatt Jarvis has warned that Leicester City will be looking to make a “fast start” against the Irons as they bid to wind up their fans.

But he believes our win over Sunderland saw the team go back to basics and said: “The manager was disappointed with results up to the Sunderland game, not picking up as many points as we should have done, but it was about staying positive, keep trying to do the basics.

“We did that against Sunderland and picked up the three points, now we need to carry that on.

“The aim is to get back to the sort of form we were showing at the start of the season. Other than Man City, everyone else we’re playing is below us, but that will be tough too because those teams will be fighting.

Speaking to the official site he added: “It will be a tough end to the season but one that we’ll be looking to pick up a lot of points from to push us right up the league again.

“Leicester will be looking to have a fast start and get the crowd up. They need to go for it so we know it will be an extremely tough game.

“They work hard as a team and create a lot of opportunities. They’ve shown their quality in parts of games but you get punished in the Premier League and that’s what’s happened to them.”
