Winger reflects on Foxes defeat

NATHAN Redmond stressed a need to move on quickly after Norwich City were beaten 2-1 by Leicester City in the Barclays Premier League at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Goals from Jamie Vardy and Jeff Schlupp in either half put the away side in control, before City reduced the deficit via Dieumerci Mbokani's first goal for the Club.

The Congolese forward's strike proved to be in vain however, and speaking after the game Redmond told Norwich City TV: "I thought we were unlucky not to get a point as we were always in the game.

"Even looking at it from the bench before I came on we looked likely to pose a threat. We knew what they were capable of on the counter-attack because they're a good side, and they showed that.

"The goals set the tone for the game, although we kept creating chances and fought back in the final 30 minutes. We can't be too disheartened as we've not started the season badly.

"There are still a lot of games left and we've just got to keep going."

Having come on as a substitute for the second league game running, the 21-year-old understands his current position, explaining: "I didn't have the effect against Bournemouth and Liverpool I'd have in our first few games of the season.

"The gaffer let me know that, but in the two games since then I've come on and had an impact. It's always about putting the team first though, which is what we all do.

"As a player you're always disappointed not to start. At the end of the day I've just got to be ready when I'm given the chance."
