Dean smith on postmatch interview
Dean smith was not quite happy with the results saying, “ a missed opportunity” in the interview.
“It’s a little bit of a missed opportunity because we missed the penalty at 2-1, but also in the first half we were second best for long periods and didn’t win enough second balls”.
“It became a basketball game and it played into their hands rather than ours. I wanted a game where we could have control and we didn’t get that until a 25-minute spell in the second half.”
“Kelechi Iheanacho was on penalties at Manchester City and took one against Wolves. Madders was on it, we saw him practising.
“The goalkeeper has been brave to stand up to it in the middle of the goal. Unfortunate but I think it was a fair result given the chances we gave away.
“I thought Vardy looked like his old self and looked a threat in behind. He got his goal really well so really pleased that he’s back scoring goals, which he does best.”
Sean Dyche on postmatch interview
Sean Dyche was happy for his side as they was able to pull off a goal and equal with Leicester right after the defeat in the hands of Newcastle.
He said, “It’s a big improvement, There was more consistency to the performance, obviously a few mistakes – we know we have to eradicate those.
“But 23 efforts away from home and I think we had nearly 50 entries into their box. It shows the way the team are trying to progress and a much better general and consistent performance, which I asked for.
“Against Newcastle we were at least decent for 70 minutes and went under too quickly. [On Monday] we didn’t. We held our nerve, kept trying to create things and kept trying to create chances.”
“Dominic Calvert-Lewin looks sharper, he looks fitter and stronger again. So he will be a weapon for us over the next four games.
“He looked a threat and his true fitness, which I spoke about when I got here, is coming back.
“He looks stronger and a lot more alert.”
