Leicester were relegated to League One on Sunday despite a 0-0 draw at Stoke, as this point wasn't enough to stave off relegation.
Ian Holloway knew that his side had to win to ensure they avoided relegation, but as hard as the Foxes tried their troubles with finding the back of the net, something they have struggled with all season, came back to haunt them again. Holloway was distraught to see the club go down, but concedes that the table doesn't lie: 'It's a devastating day for all of us. Too many times this season we haven't done it, we haven't scored and the table doesn't lie,' Holloway told BBC Sport. 'Our character needs to be looked at, the overall team and squad. The fans have known it but we've let everyone down.
'We have to hold our hands up, we were the ones with the responsibility and couldn't deal with it.'
The draw, coupled with Southampton's 3-2 win over Sheffield United condemned the Foxes to relegation, which will see them play outside the top two Divisions for the first time in their history.
Finishing the season with 52pts and only a -3 goal difference makes Leicester one of the most unfortunate sides of all time to be relegated, but as Holloway said the table doesn't like does it?
