Midfielder offers his thoughts following the Whites' clash with Leicester

Jay Spearing confessed his disappointment following Wanderers' defeat in an eight goal thriller against Leicester on Sunday afternoon, but admitted that the team only had themselves to blame.

In a game which saw the Whites take the lead on two occasions after overcoming Leicester's early opener, the midfielder explained his frustration at what could have been on a testing afternoon at the King Power Stadium.

“It is hard result to take - we went away from home to the league leaders and scored three goals but we still managed to lose the game,” he said. “We were the architects of our own downfall and we were really disappointed with the final result.

"I felt that we deserved to get something out of the game, but we allowed Leicester to get back into the match and they quickly got into their stride. 

“The penalty was a harsh decision that went against us but Andy Lonergan made a fantastic save to keep the score level, but our own mistakes cost us the match."
