The Foxes, who are four points off the promotion places in the Championship, face four games in quick succession against Millwall, Hull City, Burnley and Cardiff before the turn of the new year, with three of those coming on the road.

But while Whitbread insists that maximum points is the target over the Christmas period he also believes a sense of perspective is required.

"There's a long way to go," he told the club's official website.

"The league won't be won after the next four games, but you can pick up points in a short space of time, which is great for your confidence going into the second half of the season.

"They're all big games and we want to win them all, but it won't decide our season. We just want to stay in there and look to kick on in the second half of it."
