Duffy remains confident

25th February 2019, 10:09 by Nick Harris

Shane Duffy says there is no panic despite their alarming poor form which has seen them tumble down the Premier League.

The Republic of Ireland defender says he understands the worry the fans have after dropping down the table to 16th position.

They are back in action on Tuesday night against a managerless Leicester side without a win in all competitions since New Year's Day and Duffy is going into the game with confidence.

He told The Argus: “There is not as much worry as the fans. We understand where they are coming from, but we are not worrying like the outside.

“We are very confident actually, not as worried as probably everyone else, just purely because we believe in each other.

“We’re not concerned. We’re aware but I think we are still positive. Performances haven’t been too bad. We’ve just been letting sloppy goals in.

“We know Leicester is a tough ask, but if we play the way we can and defend well we can get three points."
