Leicester City and England midfielder Harry Winks knows play-off chasing Norwich City can inflict more Championship pain on the Foxes.

Winks’ side have won only one of the last six in the league and slipped up 1-0 at Bristol City on Good Friday.

Ipswich and Leeds both picked up points to edge Leicester out of the top two, ahead of Easter Monday’s crucial test at the King Power stadium.

Winks was one of the relegated Premier League clubs headline summer arrivals when he joined for a reported £10m from Tottenham.

But Enzo Maresca’s expensively assembled squad need to respond against the upwardly mobile Canaries.

“The most important thing now is we approach the next game with our chests out,” said the holding midfielder. “We go out there and we give everything we can because it's important that we find some sort of form in the last eight games.

“It will be a difficult game. They're a good side. They're looking to try and get into the play-offs, so it's going be tough.

"We know that every game that we play from now to the end of the season is going to be tough, but we need to find a way of somehow getting back to that form we had earlier in the season.

“And the only way we can do that is by standing up to the challenge, and accepting the situation we're in, and doing everything we can to get back.

“It's eight games to find some form, to get back into confidence, and we've got good enough players and a good enough squad to do that.

"We've got players in the team who have done that before, and they've been here and they've been in these situations and right now's not the time to blame or to sulk or to be down.”

Fit-again midfielder Wilfred Ndidi made his first league start since December 29 on Good Friday, while Ricardo Pereira was also introduced from the bench following a recent hamstring injury.

“Yes, they are key players for us," said Winks, speaking to his club’s official site. “It's important that we have as many players fit in this last month because going into this period of games where there's so many matches in such a short space of time, it's important we have as many players fit as possible.

“So to get players back in is good for us and important going into the last eight matches."
