Thomas: Happy With The Result
Leicester City's George Thomas caught up with LCFC TV following the Development Squad’s stalemate at Everton in Premier League 2 on Monday.
Reflecting on the curtain-raiser in Southport, Thomas, who spent last season on loan at Scunthorpe United, told LCFC TV: "Obviously all the boys are happy with the result in the end.
"Going down to 10 men made it a really hard shift so there’s a lot of tired legs in there, but coming away to Everton and getting a point against a good team is really pleasing.
We’re really pleased with getting back to form and we’ve been going on about it all week and we put it to the test today and it worked, so it’s really pleasing for the season.George Thomas LCFC TV
"It was another good test for us. I thought in the first half we were the better team and we dominated, we pressed really high and caused them all sorts of problems.
"Then in the second half, as you said, we had to drop off a bit so we had to do both sides of the game today and I thought we did it very well."
Thomas was also pleased to see ideas developed over the summer manifesting themselves on the pitch on Monday evening as City begun the campaign in a positive fashion.

"We’re really pleased with getting back to form and we’ve been going on about it all week and we put it to the test today and it worked, so it’s really pleasing for the season."
