Stoke v Leicester City
Mark Hughes felt that only his side came to play according to the club's website.
“There was only one team who were looking to win the game and play positively though, and throughout the first-half especially, I thought we produced some really good stuff.Foxes boss Nigel Pearson was delighted with his side leaving the Brittania with all three points.
“They key, as is always the case though, is getting that first goal, and at the moment we aren’t maybe having that little bit of luck needed to get ourselves into a winning position.
“There were a number of times today where the ball was bouncing around in the box and not once did it really fall for us, so that is frustrating.”
“We showed a willingness and a desire to keep the ball out of our net – we were under pressure for long periods.
“We didn’t really play as well as we would have liked in the first half but we remained in the game and I think that’s always important to remember.
“When you have players that have been away on international duty – it’s a little bit of an unknown quantity as to whether they can reproduce previous form.
“We managed the ball better in the second half, changed the shape and created some promising situations.
“I’m happy to get the three points but from their perspective I’m sure they’re disappointed not to get something out the game.” said Pearon on lcfc.com
