Danny's Leicester Reaction

11 March 2014

Reds Manager Danny Wilson caught up with the press after his side lot 3-0 to league leaders Leicester City.

"Sometimes it doesn't make it any easier but you've got be honest - they're the best team by a stretch," said Wilson.

"Some of the football they played was great to watch but it was hard being on the receiving end.

"The goals were poor from our point of view. The three goals came straight down the heart of us. We have to understand where the goals came from and they were poor from our perspective.

"We started the second half quite positively but then we concede a soft goal from a defensive point of view.

"They've got quality throughout their side.

"That's the way it goes. We've got to learn some lessons from that. We've got to be able to aspire to be like a team such as them.

"We were found wanting in the second half. 

"It shouldn't take anything away from the games we've got coming up. We'll put this one to be. We'll not cry too much over this one.

"We've got three points out of the two games and I don't think anyone would have given us any points before these two games."

Martin Cranie and Peter Ramage were both withdrawn due to hamstring injuries and will most likely miss Saturday's match at Watford. Wilson also confirmed winger Jim O'Brien will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

"He's (O'Brien) going for an operation on Wednesday with a cartilage tear," continued Wilson. "We've been dealt some rough cards but we've got to get on with it.

"We've got to make sure we rise above the sympathy vote and go again."
