Wes Morgan: 'We can't feel sorry for ourselves'

Wes Morgan says that Leicester City cannot feel sorry for themselves following their defeat at Newcastle United.

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan has warned his teammates that they cannot feel sorry for themselves following their defeat at Newcastle United.

A goal from Gabriel Obertan gave Newcastle a 1-0 win as Nigel Pearson's Foxes fell to their second reversal in three Premier League outings.

Morgan believes that Leicester can have no excuses after they spurned several chances at St James' Park.

"We are very disappointed," he told the Leicester Mercury. "We felt the first half was pretty even and in the second half we were starting to turn the screw a little bit and put the pressure on, so to concede from our corner with them going down the field to punish us was very hard to take.

"I think there is always room for improvement and we definitely weren't at our full capacity, but I felt we had done enough to come away with something from the game.

"It was a game we wanted to pick up some points from and, in general, I thought we played really well. We created some chances and could have won, so to come away without anything is hard to take."

Leicester have dropped to 14th in the table following the defeat.
