Leicester fouling up promotion warns Sven

Sven Goran Eriksson has warned Leicester to clean up their act or risk wrecking his promotion mission.
Eriksson has read the riot act to his squad and told them to cut out the cards after another daft dismissal cost them precious points.
Matt Mills was dismissed at Birmingham on Sunday to become the third player sent off this season for the Foxes.
And ahead of Wednesday's clash with Watford, boss Eriksson insists Leicester would be in the top six if it hadn't been for their poor discipline.
"I have had a word with all the players about it because we have to pay attention to it - three red cards in 11 games is too many," he said.
"That has probably cost us three, maybe five points. It is too expensive.
"FIFA and all the federations want football all across the world to be cleaner. The tackles you could do 20 years ago you can't do today."
Eriksson crashed to his first defeat in eight games at St Andrew's on Sunday but now has two home games in a row as he bids to climb into the play-off places for the first time.
