Saturday’s 2-0 win over Bristol City was the Foxes’ fifth straight victory in the npower Championship – a purple patch that has seen Nigel Pearson’s side climb into the automatic promotion places with 10 games played.
They topped the division for a brief spell on Saturday, before Cardiff’s evening victory took the Welsh club back to the summit going into the international break.
But after a frustrating start to campaign, where encouraging displays went unrewarded in the first three games, Morgan says City are now getting a fairer return for their efforts.
“We’ve worked hard in recent weeks and got some good results so we feel we deserve to be where we are,” said the City skipper.
“In the last couple of weeks, the wins have been fantastic and each game we go into we’re feeling confident, knowing that we can do it. We’ve been going out, performing well and getting the right results.
“Looking back through all of the games, even in the ones we’ve lost we’ve played well. We deserved to get points out of the games we lost, but it’s all starting to come together at the right time now and the last couple of weeks have been fantastic. Our performances have been reflected in the results.”
If ambitions are to be achieved this season, Morgan and co will want to get used to the feeling of being among the division’s high-flyers, as Leicester bid to end their eight-year wait for a return to the Premier League.
“The gaffer has made it clear what our intentions are for this season – we want to get promoted,” Morgan said.
“He feels he’s got the right squad and the squad feels we can do it. These wins feel us with confidence, we have a long way to go, but we’re doing well so far.”
Many will feel the international break has come at the wrong time for Pearson’s men, who have won five out of five games at home and five straight overall.
But after a tough first 10 games of the season, Morgan says the break could be beneficial as the group looks to maintain peak fitness.
“It’s been a hard few weeks and it’s probably taken its toll,” admitted Morgan.
“Jamie Vardy’s feeling a bit jaded, Konch wasn’t feeling too well and we’ve picked up a couple of injuries so it probably has come at a good time. It’s given the boys a chance to recover.
“The international break gives us a couple of weeks to get the boys back and hopefully they’ll be ready for the next game.”
