Ben Mee still keen to impress Leicester City boss Sven

By LCFC | April 30, 2011

There may not be a lot riding on today's fixture at the Keepmoat Stadium for Leicester City in terms of promotion, but for players keen to show manager Sven-Goran Eriksson they should be part of his plans for next season it is vital, says defender Ben Mee.

Mee is keen on a return to City next season when his loan from Manchester City expires because he is keen to continue his football education under Eriksson, and he said several of the other loan players feel the same.

Also, Doncaster Rovers are trying to secure the vital point which will ensure their Championship survival, so Mee is expecting a tough encounter.

"Doncaster are still down there scrapping and they are not quite safe," said Mee.

"There is still something riding on it so we can't treat it like a friendly.

"I know I want to impress the manager and a few of the lads want to stay here, and it is important for the lads who are here.

"I am not going to be taking it lightly, that's for sure."

Mee said he would like to return to the Walkers Stadium for another loan period and said Manchester City had been pleased with the way he had developed under Eriksson.

"Yes, I would be open to it," said Mee, who is trying to shake off a groin injury to face Doncaster Rovers.

"I don't know what is going to happen in the summer. There are a lot of players at Manchester City and they are probably going to bring more in.

"The manager here is a good manager, there are good players here and it is a big club. You can see the number of fans who follow us as well.

"For a young player like me, it is a good experience to be around a club like this.

"Manchester City are really happy with the way it has gone and how Leicester have handled it, so we will have to wait and see."

QPR can secure top spot and automatic promotion in the Championship today if they get at least a draw against Watford today.

"We've got to remember we're in a great position,'' said defender Fitz Hall.

"Every single one of us would have taken this at the start of the season so we have got to be happy with where we are.

"If we do our jobs on the pitch, everything else will take care of itself. That's what we've been focusing on this week.''
