U`s Must Follow Leicester Example: Izzet

U`s Must Follow Leicester Example: Izzet

Colchester United`s stand-in skipper at the weekend, Kemal Izzet, has told the media that the club need to keep clean-sheets like Leicester City if they are going to win promotion.

His comments ironically come after the Foxes were held square in a high-scoring but tight game against fellow high-flying side, MK Dons.

Izzet also told the EADT after Saturday`s 1-1 draw that he would be relinquishing the armband when Dean Hammond returns to the side on Tuesday night. The regular captain was out with a small knock.

"That's the difference between the teams at the top and the rest. When Leicester City get 1-0 up, they rarely concede a goal. That's why they are top of the league," said the U`s number 10, now the club`s current longest-serving squad member, a solid savant since 2001.

"We threw it away today," he admitted. Izzet also added that he was asked to play in a slightly different position in protecting the back four.

"It's always an honour to be named skipper. I enjoy it, and of course I was delighted when the gaffer asked me to wear the arm-band. But Deano will be the skipper when he gets back," Izzet also commented.

He made no comment on the U's play-off chances, which are now hanging in the balance, following the drawn game.

A lot of teams seem to be putting all their big men in on Walker and taking advantage of his shortness, just lately he's also came for corners and not got them. Will be interesting to see how Gerken is?
