MICKY'S MANAGERIAL MINDSET

Beginning their first season back in the top flight as one of the favorites for relegation, The Foxes appeared to be reading a different script as they appproached mid-table at the end of November after taking ten points from their previous four games.

It was extremely pleasing for Micky Adams, who seems to be enjoying his first full season as a Premiership manager having led Leicester back up in 2003.

The former Fulham and Brighton boss has built himself a reputation as one of the most promising young managers in the country and, as he admits, has been labelled 'hard but fair' - qualities that are synonymous with some of the greatest managerial figures of the English game.

Micky ensured that he drafted in players with experience of playing in the top flight when he set about strengthening his squad for the club's return to the Barclaycard Premiership; a tactic that appears to be paying dividends.

Les Ferdinand has proved that he has plenty left in the tank, and although Brian Deane has since left the club, there are plenty of others with old, wise heads on experienced shoulders who remain at the Walkers Stadium.

Adams admits that the key to survival for teams coming up from the Nationwide League is to take their chances, and that is certainly something his players have done in the first third of the season.

Can they carry it on? Micky wouldn't accept the alternative.
