Leicester Reaction: Ian Holloway

2 September 2012

Manager Gives His Thoughts On Loss

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway felt that The Seasiders coped well with what Leicester City had to offer, despite losing 1-0 at The King Power Stadium.

Unhappy with the awarding of a penalty for the decisive goal, Ollie was pleased with certain defensive aspects of the performance but the overall standard wasn't on a par with previous games.

"We were a little bit sloppy at times," he admitted. "They've had a bit of a roasting of late and I knew they'd start strong, and I knew they'd run us in behind. I felt we weathered it and at the end of the first-half we carved out two great chances. I was anticipating us improving on that in the second-half. We threw caution to the wind after they scored and should have equalised.  

"We didn't play that particularly well in my honest opinion, compared to the last few games. But I thought we looked solid and we looked like we could defend anything they put in. We had a chance to break but we weren't quite as cohesive upfront as we normally are." 

A number of players will now depart for international duty this week, with Blackpool back in action at Barnsley on Saturday 15 September.
