Leicester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson believes his side can still reach the Championship play-offs.

The Foxes are in ninth place, four points adrift of sixth with five games to go in the Championship campaign.

Eriksson told BBC Radio Leicester: "We are still alive, we are still there. The next two games are very, very important, starting on Saturday.

"It is frustrating as we should have done better, so it is just for us to try to win the next games."

Leicester travel to Reading on Saturday before a trip to local rivals Nottingham Forest on Friday, 22 April.

The Foxes have won only two of their last nine matches, and Eriksson reflects on how different things could be going into the run-in.

"We should already be there after all the games we should have won," he added.

"Maybe we are not experienced enough sometimes, maybe we are not cool enough sometimes.

"But as long as it [play-offs] is a possibility we are going to fight for it.

"We still have the possibility and we have two great games ahead of us, Reading and then Forest, so let's go."
