We can win league – Drinkwater

Midfielder Danny Drinkwater believes Leicester can catch

Championship leaders Cardiff.

The Foxes, still second in the table after defeats for Watford

and Crystal Palace this week, can start to eat into the Bluebirds’

10-point lead when they host struggling Wolves on Thursday

night.

Victory for Leicester at the King Power Stadium would put the

pressure on their rivals ahead of their matches at the weekend, and

Drinkwater

said: “It’s massively important that we do that.

“We’ve got ourselves into a good position and we need to stay

there. If we can get another three points on Thursday night then it

could be massive.

“It would move us closer to Cardiff and put a bit of breathing

space between us and the other sides in the chasing pack. Then we

can enjoy the weekend off and watch how everyone else gets on.

“I can’t see why we can’t catch Cardiff. There are still 18

games to go and we’ve still got them to play. It is a weird league

and anything can happen.”
