Captain Wes Morgan said Leicester City must put right their disappointing defeat at Leeds on Tuesday when they face Derby today.

City face their East Midlands rivals at the King Power Stadium this afternoon and Morgan knows it is important they make amends for their defeat at Elland Road.

He said the game was just as important to the players as the fans, and the former Nottingham Forest defender said City were determined to show their promotion credentials to the countless others watching on television.

"We weren't at our best that day at Leeds and certainly didn't play as well as we have done in previous games," said Morgan.

"You are going to get games like that in this league, but the games come thick and fast and we just have to write that one off.

"We are looking forward to Derby now. It means a lot to the fans and we want to perform well and get the right result.

"It is a bit of a dent. We had two good wins prior to that and we wanted to add to that, but it didn't work out.

"We didn't get the breaks but we have to dust ourselves off and go again. Coming off the back of a defeat, it is important to get back to winning ways. We can do that today.

"Derby at home, the game is live on Sky – it is a good one for the fans, so we want to win it.

"It means a lot to the players as well and we want to put what happened at Leeds right.

"The fans have been great and we apologise for not getting the result at Leeds."
