Blowing Bubbles

  Leicester City returned back to their old ways against Coventry City today, creating no end of chances but letting silly mistakes and poor decisions get in the way of winning a match that was easily winnable.  Kyle Naughton replied with a great goal to a Marlon King goal to drag out a disappointing 1-1 home draw.  Is the promotion dream fading away?

Positives
  - Leeds, Forest, Hull and Reading all dropped points along with us today which makes the result not a total disaster
  - Leicester still have only one loss in the last ten and are unbeaten at home since Sven came, thirteen matches ago

Negatives
 - poor games from new Chelsea loanees Van Aanholt and Bruma didn't help the team at all, especially since Bruma was at the expense of Ben Mee and put Sol Bamba on his weaker side...get Berner and Mee back please
 - again, the chances we made were not put away.
 - teams like Burnley are catching up with us (they have two games in hand) and the top four (plus Forest with their game in hand) are flying away
 - the promotion dream is pretty much out of Leicester's hands, having to hope for others above to drop points whilst keeping consistent with winning

  In the end, it was a poor performance in which Leicester's point came because Coventry played poorer and could be a definitive moment in the season with QPR and Norwich coming up.  To come from bottom of the table to the place the Foxes are now is amazing in itself but they can't afford another blip to add to the beginning of the season and December.

  Automatic promotion is as good as gone, can Sven and the Foxes pull a trip to Wembley out of the bag?
