This is his first premier League goal and his third against W2olverhampton.
Nathan Collins expresses his disappointment by giving an honest assessment of the Wolves’ performance: “It’s not good enough. End of. It’s nowhere near where we need to be. It’s a shambles, a poor performance. It was embarrassing playing that today. I feel ashamed, for me and the players, and we need a reaction.
“We said it before the game, both boxes, you look at the stats, we’ve had so many chances. We’ve probably had the better chances, but we don’t score a goal, they have five shots and score four goals. Defensively and attacking, we were nowhere near where we needed to be,” the Irish center-back strongly expressed during the post-match interview.
He also addresses the frustrations of the fans who witnessed the very embarrassing defeat from the hands of The Foxes,
‘I don’t blame them, they spent good money to come and watch us, and they didn’t deserve that from us, it was embarrassing from us, and they deserve better. They deserve for us to at least try hard. We didn’t give them a performance to be proud of.”
On the other hand, Foxes manager Brendan Rogers praises the performance of his side’s third win after they defeated Nottingham and Leeds, “Collectively, we were very, very good. We carried a threat, and defensively we were excellent. Our pressing has been very good and all the goals were fantastic.’ He added, “Confidence will grow and we’ll get better. The concentration is better, everybody is focused, pressing at the right time and forcing teams into mistakes. Then we know we have the quality in the final third.”
With that third consecutive win this month, Leicester were able to move from 20th to 16th of the English Premier League table. Wolves dropped to 19th spot and Nottingham Forest to last place.
