The Foxes head into Friday's Premier League 2 Division 1 trip to Tottenham Hotspur on the back of a two-week break, which was preceded by successive draws with Liverpool and Chelsea.

Both matches included City's youngsters being in front until the latter moments, but Wright says nobody in the squad is overly dispirited as performances have been strong throughout the season.

Previewing 7pm BST kick-off at Lamex Stadium, Wright said: "It's going to be a difficult game, but we've got a lot of work done over the last two weeks and we're putting in good performances.

It'll be a tough one because Tottenham are obviously a good side, but we are definitely looking forward to it and it'll be a good test for us.

"It'll be a tough one because Tottenham are obviously a good side, but we are definitely looking forward to it and it'll be a good test for us.

"If we continue to play well, it'll start falling into place so we're just waiting for that to happen and we'll keep doing what we're doing until it does."

Following clashes with Spurs and Southampton, next Friday, the Foxes will then contest a double-header of ties in the Leasing.com Trophy either side of a trip to Manchester City.

With Leicester due to face Grimsby Town and Sunderland in the EFL competition, Wright says they are fixtures which present an opportunity for the players to compete with established professionals.
