Marc Albrighton believes Leicester are perfectly placed to chase success on three fronts.

The Foxes are third in the Premier League after Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Wolves.

They also host Brighton in the FA Cup fifth round on Wednesday and travel to Slavia Prague in the last 32 of the Europa League in 10 days.

Albrighton said: “It’s exciting. Obviously, the games are coming thick and fast and different competitions and we’re fighting on all fronts.

“That’s what we looked to do at the start of season. We wanted to be in each competition as long as possible.

“We’ve got a chance to go into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, which is a fantastic opportunity for us and we’ll be looking to go and put on a big performance and get the result on Wednesday.”

Albrighton was a second-half substitute in the draw at Molineux as the Foxes missed the chance to draw level with Manchester United in second.

Leicester are two points behind United and seven adrift of leaders Manchester City after they hammered Liverpool 4-1.

“A point, on reflection, was a good point, a hard-fought point and one we can be pleased with and feel like we’ve earned,” Albrighton told LCFCTV.

“That’s been our motto a lot this season, in terms of at the start of season we were either winning games or losing games and we had to get back to: if we can’t win it, yes, like you say, don’t lose it.”

Wolves remain 14th after Fabio Silva was denied a winner by Kasper Schmeichel’s save with 13 minutes left.

“I thought we did enough to win the game, if I’m being honest,” skipper Conor Coady told the club’s official site.

“I think they’ve always been quite close the games. We knew it was going be like that, but the lads dug in, did really well and created a number of chances where I thought we could’ve nicked it as well.

“It’s a point, it’s a clean sheet which is big for us, that’s what we want to do, we want to keep on keeping clean sheets now. That’s two in the last couple of weeks so hopefully we can keep on going now.”
