Leicester intent on finishing strongly - Rodgers
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says his squad are not thinking too much after the battle for seventh place.
Since Rodgers took over at King Power Stadium on February 26, the Foxes have racked up 12 points from a possible 18 on offer and those results have lifted the club to seventh in the Premier League.
That position is expected to be enough to earn a place in the qualifying rounds for next season's Europa League although there are a number of clubs still involved in the hunt for seventh.
Eighth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers are only behind on goal difference while Everton and Watford, who recently reached the FA Cup final, are just a point behind the 2015/16 English champions.
When asked about the race for seventh, Rodgers says his side are not focusing on this battle and just want to finish the campaign well.
"We're not really thinking about that," he said at a press conference. "We want to finish as high as we can and do our very best. It's important we continue to work and prepare for next season while finishing as strongly as possible."
