WE HAD a bit of good fortune at Leicester City.
In the first half we were under pressure and didn't pressure enough ourselves. Leicester got it forward well and put us under pressure.
I don't believe we deserved anything less than a one-goal deficit at half-time with the way we played, even though it was a fortuitous goal.

Players are funny people, losing 1-0 inspires them to attack - perhaps I'll convince them we're losing 1-0 when we kick-off!
The substitutions went well and you could say I had a lucky day. You have to be lucky as well.
I decided to go for it. It's not clever, losing 1-0 and you've got to go for the game. We went into attacking mode. I took Paul Konchesky off because players immediately think Bobby Zamora's more of an attacker and it threatens them a bit more. It's a gamble and it worked.
Stephane Dalmat's got pace and power, OJ Mabizela has pace and power, he's opening his eyes to the English game. It's a new country, a new culture.
We need that type of player because in the first half Leicester were more athletic and quicker to the ball than us and we didn't pose a threat.
I thought the two centre-halves did very well, Dean Richards and Gary Doherty. Doherty sometimes got too tight and we were having a physical battle with Dickov. He's a real irritant, but thought the centre-halves handled it all well.
