Reds Assistant Manager's thoughts

“We’ve not got a win today and there is that disappointment,” said Flitcroft. “But we stood toe to toe with arguably one of the best teams in the league.

Assistant Manager Dave Flitcroft spoke to the press following today’s 1-1 draw at Leicester City.

“There’s pride in there yet disappointment and a burning desire for next week.

“We had a game plan to try and press and hurry. We are playing against a team I consider could win the Championship.

“We tried to match them. Luke Steele was outstanding for the first 15 minutes. Man for man we stood up to the task. They attacked us with great purpose which sometimes can expose Leicester.

“Steve Dawson, he arrived in there and he’s added that composure and a decent finish from him. Reuben’s got a rocket foot on him, he’s growing in confidence bit by bit. We’ve improved his defensive side by playing him left-back in the Under 21s. The strike was quality, he’s capable of that.

“We’re getting to the green but it’s the putting that’s letting us down at the minute. We’ll get there, we are getting there.

“It’s a brilliant league and to perform like we have done this season, we’re just missing that last little bit. We’ll strive for that seven days a week.”
