National bookmakers have slashed their odds against Sven-Goran Eriksson’s squad making it to the top flight and Leicester firm Mark Jarvis say they have been “swamped” with bets.

With many national chains, City are now 4-1 clear favourites to win the Championship title.

City are not making any official comment about Eriksson’s departure, but the Mercury understands the owners took a thorough look at his record since he took charge over a year ago before sacking him.

“Consistency has been one of our issues this season so the emphasis this week is on getting our performance right first and foremost.

“We’ve got to get our own performance such that other teams don’t enjoy playing against us and fear us.

To do that we have to be at our maximum with more consistency.” – Nigel Pearson

Promotion has always been the primary aim for City and, had they been challenging in the top two, today’s third-round tie could have been seen as a low priority for manager Nigel Pearson.

But the Welsh international midfielder believes the FA Cup has taken on added importance because it is an opportunity for them to discover some consistency and momentum going into the second half of the season.

“This definitely could kick-start our season,” said King.

“I know exactly what the problems are at this football club and I will be addressing them.

“I have a job to do and I am very happy to have the job. I am not happy with the result or the performance, but I recognise where we are, we have to put it right and I will put it right.” – Nigel Pearson

“If we can put together some sort of run between now and the end of the season, as we are 30 games in now, there are still an awful lot of points to play for so who knows what can happen,” said Pearson.

“We have to go out and do it. I am still very confident we have more to come.

“I am pleased with the chemistry within the squad because that is always key. But we have to go out and do it on the pitch.”

“I think we have to believe it is still possible,” said St Ledger.

“We could get that gap back in a Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday week. Then March is a very big month, the games come thick and fast and we have to believe right up until it is mathematically impossible. We are capable of doing what Reading did with the squad we have got. We just have to believe and eradicate the mistakes we are making.”

He [Pearson] said: “In the last 10 games we have had seven wins, so it is not as if we have been playing badly.

“But, when you look at the league form over a calendar year, to not have recorded back-to-back wins is the obvious reason why we are in the position we are.

“But we have given ourselves a chance and, although we are seven points off the play-off places, the players are very confident. We have played some pretty good football as well.

“There are plenty of games left and the onus is still on us. It has to be a very positive run and the margin for error is very small, but there is still a chance.”

“It is not over,” said the City defender [Sean St. Ledger]. “Why would it be?

“There are 12 games left, 36 points to play for. We go out to try to win every game, and if we go on another run together and try to kick on then who knows?

“People will write us off against Reading. It is still a possibility because we can take points off Reading, West Ham, Hull and Birmingham, so anything is possible and we won’t be giving up the fight yet.
