Manager Claudio Ranieri has said he’s very confident we have the character to bounce back from the Capital One Cup disappointment in midweek when we face West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

Speaking to ahead of the game, Ranieri explained that he didn’t expect the Hull defeat to interrupt our league form.

‘I`d like if they show a good character. Okay, Leicester lost on Tuesday, now we have to react. This is a good spirit from everybody. It`s not important who played, they played Leicester. Lose or win, we`re Leicester. We have to show our character in every match, every second.’

Ranieri went on to say that during the course of the season there will always be hiccups, and we’re certainly had those in games but managed to fight our way back, and he doesn’t see that changing.

‘In this moment everything is going the right way but not always it can be the same. For us it`s important to take points before the bad moments. If they arrive we are ready. Our life is good because we do what we want to do. It`s fantastic. There is a lot of adrenaline, up and down. It`s good.’

Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer was also doing the pre game interview rounds ahead of the game, and he covered a few subjects including man of the minute Jamie Vardy.

So I’ll start there!

‘I think everyone is finding it very, very difficult to contain him. But you know as a footballer sometimes things go really well for you and you`ve got to make the most of that when it`s happening. At the moment Vards is playing extremely well and he can`t put a foot wrong. That`s brilliant for us and we`re all going to push to help him play as well as he can for as long as he can. Hopefully he keeps scoring for us because the goals he has scored have been vital for us. He`s very important. He`s an unbelievable athlete and his determination and attitude towards the game is immense. He causes nightmares for opposition defences.’

He also spoke about the confidence surrounding the club as we go into this weekend’s clash but also how he was expecting a very tough clash from Tony Pulis’ boys.

‘It`s going to be a tough game. They`ll be under pressure to do well at home. They probably haven`t performed as well as they`d have liked to thus far in the season at home but we want to continue our good run and it`s going to be a tough game. We know that Tony Pulis is always going to have his team well set up and they`ll try to nullify our strengths. They`re playing at home so they`re going to try to win the game because it`s also important for them to try and accumulate points as quickly as possible. But we`ve got lots of self-belief, a good squad of players and some players who are playing extremely well at the moment. We need to capitalise on that and get to 40 points as quickly as possible.’
