- Leicester City Development Squad goalkeeper Jakub Stolarczyk speaks following a 1-1 stalemate against Arsenal Under-23s in Seagrave on Monday
- The draw, secured by Thanawat Suengchitthawon's goal, keeps City 11th in Premier League 2 Division 1 with two games remaining in the season
- Stolarczyk admits the young Foxes could have been more ruthless in front of goal as they looked to close the gap on the 10th-placed Gunners
- He adds that the team must now be focused on taking points from back-to-back fixtures against Liverpool Under-23s
Arsenal's Trae Coyle broke the deadlock for the visiting side during the first 45 minutes at LCFC Training Ground, but after a succession of chances, Leicester deservedly levelled the scores on the hour mark.
Jake Wakeling played in Thanawat Suengchitthawon to net his second in as many games and move the Foxes a point clear of the bottom two in the Premier League 2 Division 1 standings.
Stolarczyk praised the character shown by the Foxes to come back from a goal behind at the break and reflected on what might have been had they been able to convert more of their opportunities in front of goal.
"I think we could have been more clinical and that could have given us the win, but in general, I think it was a very good performance from us," the shot-stopper told LCFC TV.
Early on in the season we were getting results where we were down at half-time and then we're coming out for the second half and getting back in the game, so it's good that we're still showing that.Jakub Stolarczyk LCFC TV
"We felt like we could get three points out of the game. We hit the post twice so it was probably just a bit unlucky, it was just one of those days when it didn't come off really.
"We've shown our character throughout the whole season. Early on in the season we were getting results where we were down at half-time and then we're coming out for the second half and getting back in the game, so it's good that we're still showing that."
Having collected four points from a possible six in the last two games, including a 7-1 win over Southampton, City will enter the weekend's trip to face Liverpool Under-23s with confidence that they can gain another positive result.
The young Foxes tackle the Reds at Liverpool Academy on Monday 3 May (12pm kick-off) before welcoming the Merseyside outfit to LCFC Training Ground for the final league fixture on Monday 10 May (7pm kick-off).
"Hopefully we're going to carry that on for the last two games of the season," the 20-year-old 'keeper added.
"We've not played Liverpool this season yet so it's going to be a good challenge for us and hopefully we're going to be right at it."
