Town's Head Coach spoke to HTTV following the 3-1 defeat to Leicester City

- Wagner reflects on Leicester defeat
- DW rues his side not taking the chances created
- Listen to the Head Coach's full interview on #HTTV+

David Wagner spoke to HTTV after his side fell to a 3-1 defeat at the King Power Stadium, sharing his disappointment with the outcome despite a good attitude and level of performance from his side.

Town’s Head Coach watched on as his side created a number of chances, of which only one would be taken by Zanka early on.

Kelechi Iheanacho, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy all netted goals which the Head Coach described as ‘presents’ to the home side; and was frustrated by his players' inability to finish some of the chances created during the game.

Iheanacho and Vardy's strikes arrived on the break - a major threat which DW discussed the importance of - coming to a place such as Leicester and not allowing the pacey options to sense any opportunities.

Reflecting on the way his men went about their business in the East Midlands, the boss couldn't fault the effort and application, but certainly rued the costly missed chances which could well have seen the encounter take a different, more positive twist had Town taken chances earlier in the game.

When speaking to #HTTV, David Wagner commented:

"Performance attitude and effort wise, everything was there. Very good individual performances again.

“We have to speak about our problems and the problems today were so many individual mistakes in the offence – not using our clear-cut chances – and defensively all three were individual mistakes which we shouldn’t make.

“The goals we conceded were presents, if you do mistakes like we’ve done then it’s difficult and unlikely you will get something out of a Premier League match.

“Again, this is a good performance, but we have to avoid the mistakes which we’ve done; and they were too many in this game today.

"There is not much between us and our opponents. We were really in the game, and you won't have as many clear-cut chances as we did today against Leicester; we had to ultilise our chances.

"I have no doubt that we will collect our points if we carry on playing as we are."
