Leicester midfielder Dewsbury-Hall: I want to repay Rodgers

Leicester City midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall says the players are behind manager Brendan Rodgers ahead of tonight's clash with Nottingham Forest.

The Foxes go into the game looking to kick start their season after what has been a disappointing campaign so far. Six losses in a row and just one point from the opening seven games means that manager Brendan Rodgers is under pressure.

But Dewsbury-Hall had nothing but praise for the man who has helped make him into the player he is today.

"He's taken me from almost like a kid to a man," the midfielder told TalkSPORT. "The respect I have for him just for that is unbelievable and I've learned so much off him as a player, tactically and technically.

"I've improved enormous amounts under him, so it's been a pleasure to work for him. I've grown as a person.

"He's given me a lot of opportunities and trust in me and I'm happy I've been able to repay that, so I want to keep doing that. And hopefully it can continue being a good relationship"
