So, what did we learn from last night?
Well, we learned that when we put our minds to it, we can defend incredibly well and if we can hold out for 80 minutes against a side that’s challenging for Europe in the division above us, then we really can achieve anything if we put our minds to it.
It’s a good starting point, but now it’s all about taking the next step.
Pep Clotet has spoken in the past about his desire to go for three points in games instead of one, and whilst there weren’t any points on offer in this match, you can swap in the ideas of wins and draws instead.
However, it was pretty clear last night that we weren’t playing to win the game. When you take a look at the statistics; 746 Leicester passes compared to our 231, 76.6% possession against 23.4% and 12 shots to 8 shows that we were playing for the draw and possibly stealing it on penalties.
Do the Blues need to adapt their style of play going forward?
Clotet deserves some credit for the fact that he has got us to a state where we can grind out results based on our long unbeaten run that we were on, but with the majority of them being draws, it can get a little bit frustrating at times if they don’t turn into wins.
This goes back to what I said the other day about stagnating, at the moment we’re treading water but we need to start taking that step forward and turning these draws into wins. Whilst we don’t necessarily need the points desperately now, it’s all about getting things ready for next season.
Show us a little bit more attacking prowess, and then use these draws as something to fall back on if we have to.
