Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has expressed delight with the way Leicester City responded to conceding early on against Huddersfield Town.
The Foxes bounced back from Mathias Jorgensen’s effort to win 3-1 at King Power Stadium as Kelechi Iheanacho, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy were on
target for Puel’s men
Mathias Jorgensen put the Terriers ahead inside five minutes at King Power Stadium, but after a swift response, Kelechi Iheanacho equalised midway
through the first half.
City were much improved after the break, as a superb free-kick from James Maddison and Jamie Vardy’s fine chipped finish earned a 3-1 win on
“It was a tough game, a tough game,” Ndidi told footballlive.ng. “It was difficult for us. Of course, we know this team sits deep and are difficult
to find space [against] with 11 players behind the ball.
“We didn’t succeed to find space and perhaps we played square without finding a good solution in the first half. It was better in the second half
of course and with more desire, but I think with good transitions, we played forward.
“We took the space and we have got a good reward. At the beginning of the game, it’s not enough. We conceded another goal and it’s difficult after
to come back against a team like this. We have to correct this situation of course. This is a bad thing about our game.
“After, the fantastic feelings – of course our mentality, our strength to come back into the game. To concede the first goal and to come back is
fantastic spirit, it shows the quality of my team.
