Leicester City still chasing top two - David Nugent

Nugent has scored six goals in 18 games for the Foxes this term

Leicester City striker David Nugent insists the club have not given up hope of automatic promotion despite being 13 points adrift of leaders Southampton.

City were pre-season favourites to go up from the Championship but a new-look side have struggled for consistency.

Nugent told BBC Radio Leicester they must have a near perfect festive run.

"We're aiming for the top two. There are four games over Christmas and if we win all four it's still all to play for," Nugent said.

The Foxes, who travel to face Doncaster Rovers on Saturday, are 10 points below second-placed West Ham and five points adrift off the final play-off spot following last week's home draw with Peterborough United.
