Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi says they were not prepared to lose despite being one man down at Brighton as they fought hard to earn a 1-1 draw.

Despite being one goal down and one man down at halftime, Leicester City came out fighting in the second half and got the equalizer in the 79th minute thanks to Jamie Vardy’s clinical penalty.

“We will take this one because we fought hard for it, we could’ve asked for more but it was just the game. We were 1-0 down, we had to fight for it, we knew we couldn’t settle to lose the game but the 1-1 is okay for us,” Ndidi told the club’s website.

“Everyone knew what they were doing, and we actually saw the game at that time, we needed to get one goal and that came.

“We tried to go for one more, it didn’t happen but it’s something we should learn from, from 1-0 down, it doesn’t mean the game is finished, we just need to keep going.”

“If we’d have got in another one, everyone would’ve been happier than we are now, but there are positives, we just settle for it.”
