Leicester midfielder Praet accepts he needs to score more

Leicester City midfielder Dennis Praet accepts he needs to score more.

The Belgium international bagged his first goal in City colours last month in the 2-1 defeat to Southampton, but knows getting on the scoresheet is not something he can do fleetingly if he is to be a key player for Rodgers, who wants his forward-thinking midfielders to relieve the pressure on Jamie Vardy.

“I was very pleased to get my first goal but at the end of the game I didn't feel too happy because we lost the game," Praet said.

“I would much prefer us to win the game and me not score, than it be the other way around.

“The coach expects us midfield players in the number eight positions to be dangerous going forward and score goals throughout the season. Maybe that is something I can get better at and improve during my time here."
