Sousa praises spirit of ten-man Leicester in Norwich defeat

Leicester boss Paulo Sousa felt his side showed plenty of spirit in their 4-3 loss to Norwich at Carrow Road as they almost came back to snatch an unlikely point. The Foxes were in front after just two minutes through Martyn Waghorn before finding themselves 4-2 down with Matty Fryatt providing the only reply to strikes from Andrew Crofts, Adam Drury and a Wes Hoolahan brace.

Second-half substitute Fryatt then netted a second before being shown a straight red card.

Sousa said: "There is a lot of quality in the team and there was also a lot of spirit out there.

"To turn things around we need that good attitude and you saw it for a large part of the game, if we can carry on like that we will have a good chance of turning it around.

"We need to keep working hard, especially on keeping clean sheets. This is not an easy moment, I know that, but I have spoken to the new owners and I think the best way to turn this around is to stick together and be strong."
