Leicester playmaker Maddison: I've been my own biggest critic

Leicester City playmaker James Maddison has said he has had to be his "own biggest critic" in recent times.

The Englishman scored his first goal in eight months to help Leicester claim a 2-1 win over Brentford.

"I have had to be my own biggest critic and look at where I was maybe going wrong," he told BBC Sport.

"It is just having that humbleness to look at myself.

"Thankfully I got a tap-in [against Brentford] and I won't score an easier one."

He added: "The people who doubt me, and who question me, are the people who motivate me.

"After the Brighton game I assessed how I was doing at the time. I realised I was low on confidence so we went back to what made me the player I am.

"It kind of gave me a kick up the bum. Hopefully I can get back to my best."
