Leicester midfielder Maddison on top 4 blow: Still so much football to be played

Leicester City midfielder James Maddison insists there's still a lot of football to play after their 1-1 draw with Southampton.

The result was a blow for Leicester's top four chances.

But Maddison says: "We had chances to win the game. When you are against 10 men for such large periods you should be winning the game. They played in a low-block so it was hard to break them down but we created chances. We have been good against 10 men and good at coming from behind so I still had hope right up until the last minute.

"It's tough because we got into a couple of good opportunities but we didn't have that cutting edge we've had for most of the season.

"I'm still getting up to my full match fitness. I've still got a bit to go to my top level. That was good to get 90 minutes. I felt okay but I'm always looking to improve."

On getting top four, he added: "It's not that simple. There's so much football to be played and so much to happen. We can't get caught up in that. We just have to win football matches and see where we are after 38 matches."
