Iborra & Ndidi Take Stoke Positives

Iborra & Ndidi Take Stoke Positives

Whilst being disappointed to take only a point from Leicester City's trip to Stoke City at the weekend, Vicente Iborra and Wilfred Ndidi wanted to focus on the positives following the game as they met with the media after the two all draw.

Speaking to in his own post game interviews, Iborra felt the side could be pleased with the performance although he had hoped to see his first club goal count for more on the day.

He was joined on the scoresheet by Riyad Mahrez.

'I`m happy because I want to help the team with hard work and with goals. I`m very happy to score. It`s a great moment because I scored and I celebrated with our fans. I`m very happy for them. I think that the team had a lot of chances. We only scored two goals but they equalised and Stoke is a very strong team. Finally, we added one point to our classification and I think it`s good to always add points.'

Having come off in the 66th minute after what looked like he'd rolled his ankle, he added briefly.

'I`m waiting for the next few days to see the evolution of the injury.'

As for Ndidi, he praised the character of the side in the game and he felt that had we managed to get the third goal we would've taken all three points.

'We tried to pick up the three points. We had so many chances and if we had converted them it would have been easier. We had chances to win the game when we were 2-1 up. At least we got a point, so it`s okay. We don`t have to do a lot of thinking about how we could have won the game. A point against a team like Stoke is okay. We tried to fight back after Stoke scored and as you can see in the game, it was a good spirit from the team. Everybody is close to being back to their best.'

With the side picking up four points from Puel's opening two games, Ndidi went on to say that he felt the side were adjusting well to the Frenchman's methods.

'We`re just trying to go with the momentum. We`ll always try to do our best in the next game. From the first day, he has been trying to implement his ideas and philosophy, so we`re just trying to get used to it.'
