Leicester City goalkeeper Ben Hamer says that he enjoyed the experience of Saturday's 1-0 victory over Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.

Leicester City goalkeeper Ben Hamer has admitted that he was not expecting to make his Premier League debut so early in his career with the club.

First-choice stopper Kasper Schmeichel was ruled out of Saturday's match at Stoke City, but Hamer kept a clean sheet as the Foxes ran out 1-0 winners at the Britannia Stadium.

Hamer has said that he would now like to gain more experience of top-flight football.

"It was sprung on me a little bit and the opportunity has come a little bit quicker than I expected, but you have to be ready," he told the Leicester Mercury.

"I was a little bit nervous in the warm-up because I didn't know what to think about the situation, but it is just another game of football. I took that mind-set, got a good warm-up in and then I got an early touch which settled the nerves a bit.

"It just became a normal game of football to me after that. It was enjoyable, a bit heart-racing towards the end when they were looking for an equaliser, but it was a really good experience and one I want to have again."

Hamer joined Leicester from Charlton Athletic during the summer.
