Ledley King is determined to take our European form into the Barclays Premiership - starting against Wigan on Sunday afternoon.

The lads racked up their fifth win in five UEFA Cup matches with another fine performance and 1-0 victory against Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday. That followed success against Slavia Prague over two legs, Besiktas and Club Brugge.

Thursday's win stretched our run to just one defeat in 13 games in all competitions - winning nine, drawing three - since the reverse at Liverpool in September.

Skipper Ledley revealed that the frustrating aspect of that sequence was not being able to put back-to-back wins together in the league.

"We’ve been striving to do that, we’ve not been able to and that’s been disappointing," said Ledley.

"It’s one loss in the last 13 games and it’s not all doom and gloom. But it’s about winning the right games. The Reading game was disappointing. If we had won that game then we’d be right up there, and that’s the way it’s been for us.

"Wigan at home is a game we feel we can win, we have to win if we want to reproduce the form of last season to finish top five, top six.

"No-one is really pulling away apart from the top two at the moment so put some back-to-back wins together and we’re confident we can climb."
