Leicester boss urges players to forget Portmsouth mauling

Paulo Sousa is telling his Leicester City players to put their 6-1 defeat at Portsmouth behind them. The Foxes downed Pompey in the Carling Cup on Tuesday, but they were heavily beaten in the Championship on Friday night at Fratton Park.

Sousa, who saw Angelo Miguel Vitor sent off in the first half, was left disappointed after the result but is eyeing a response against Norwich next Tuesday.

He told Sky Sports: "It is a very tough result to take, everyone is sad.

"Of course when you make mistakes, you get punished. Playing with 10 men for such a long time is hard.

"I feel proud of my players for their extra effort with 10 men. But of course when you try and change the game, you can get caught on the counter-attack.

"There were some individual mistakes. Those are of course something we want to avoid. We need to grow and be strong.

"It is a difficult result of course, but we want to move on."
