Gary O neil said, “It’s a big win. Every win in the Premier League is a big win for us. We’ve had four in the last eight games now which is massive. They’re not easy to come by at all. You work your socks off and find a way to win enough.
“[We’re] relieved. It didn’t need to be as close or as stressful as it was. Similar to Brighton, really, we should have been better with our chances.
“We should have been more clinical and the game should have been put to bed, but it wasn’t.
“We showed in the first half that we can play some really good stuff but Leicester sort of started to come toward the end and we had to show a different side. We had to dig in because we haven’t managed to convert enough of our chances to make the game safe.
“We showed that we could be resilient and that’s a big clean sheet for us.”
On Billing, he added: “He showed some calmness [for the goal], because it was a big chance, but you still need to finish it. He had some nice moments as well. I felt he had a big impact on the game.
“He’s a great player and he had one of his better afternoons. He’s had a great season for us. Eight games to go and we’ll keep pushing him and keep trying to get a bit more out of him, as we will with all of them, and work on being a little more clinical.”
Adam Sadler on postmatch interview
“We’re deeply disappointed – there’s no getting away from that. You can see there’s a lack of confidence in the team at the moment.
“We’re in a fight, we’ve got eight games to go, we’ve got to stay together. That’s ultimately the key bit, being ready for that fight and taking it to next week when we go to play Man City.
On Maddison’s error, he said: “We’re not here to talk about individual errors. We’re a team, we’ve got to stay together, we’ve got to stay united. Things happen in the game, it was a set-back in the game. So be it.
“We had plenty of time to do something about that but we weren’t able to do it on this occasion. He’s a massive player for this football club, we’ve got a couple of days now to recover and we’ll be back in on Tuesday to get back to work.”
