Jan Siewert admitted that his side needs to be more clinical in front of goal after his side suffered a 4-1 defeat against Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City side.
The Head Coach spoke to #HTTV after the game of how important it is for his players to take chances when they occur.
“First of all I have to say the credit from our side to Leicester as they were much more clinical than we were.
“We tried everything, and this is exactly the quality in the Premier League I would say.
“In the situation where they have a 50/50 chance, they score, we need too many possibilities to score then.”
Steve Mounié had an excellent chance to grab a goal after coming on as a second half substitute and Siewert acknowledged that the striker tried everything in order to change the game.
“Steve came on the pitch and tried everything.
“He had his chances, so he showed that he wanted to change the game, unfortunately he could not, but he tried everything to do it.
“When we had the momentum it’s like a mirror of the season and then the opponent has the momentum to score, and they do it.”
Town pulled a goal back following the break as Aaron Mooy netted from the penalty spot after Karlan Grant was fouled and Siewert admitted that he told his players to go for it at half-time.
“That’s what I told them, we talked together at half-time and talked about what we can change.
“I had an idea and they directly responded to it and we got the momentum.
“Then Mooy scored and that made me proud today because everyone knows that there was a little girl and we all wanted to give this little girl a win.”
