We can win all our final four games – Leicester City's Jeff Schlupp

Leicester City striker Jeff Schlupp said he fully believes they can win their final four games to break into the play-off places.

Birmingham's last-minute equaliser from the penalty spot on Friday night meant City have now won just one game out of their last 13.

They are eighth and two points adrift of sixth place with only four games remaining, starting with tomorrow night's visit of Bolton Wanderers, who leapfrogged into the play-off places on Saturday.

City boss Nigel Pearson has admitted City may need to win all four, which are all against top-six sides, and Schlupp said, despite the poor run, he knows City have what it takes to achieve it.

"We have four games left and I am really confident we will secure those four and get into the play-off spot," said the 20-year-old, who thought he had secured a vital win for City on Friday with his superb 75th-minute header.

"People know we tend to do better against the bigger teams so, at the end of the day, it is just another game and, hopefully, we will get the win.

"It looked as though we had done everything we could to get the win we needed but we have to just pick ourselves up now and go again.

"The mood in the dressing room (after the game) wasn't nice but we are big men and will pick ourselves up.

"Hopefully, we can win the last four games and get into that play-off spot."

Schlupp has started the last two games in attack and impressed with his performance against Birmingham, although he admits he should have taken more of the chances that fell his way.

"I am back playing up top, where I feel most comfortable. I am happy with that. I have done decent in the last few games. I was gutted with the chances I missed because I did have a few.

"Normally, I back myself in those positions.

"Paul Robinson pulled off a good tackle on one when it just wouldn't sit down for me.

"That is why I was quite gutted I didn't put them away, but I was pleased with the goal.

"When that header went in it was a big relief to finally get that goal. It was great delivery from Matty James and I got a good run and jump, but I just closed my eyes really. I just saw it go in, It was a great feeling."
