The Foxes maintained their position at the top of the Sky Bet Championship thanks to goals from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Harry Winks – the latter an injury-time winner just moments after the Baggies had levelled the scores through Josh Maja.

Ndidi outlined the importance of taking three points, especially following the disappointment of drawing away to Sheffield Wednesday in midweek.

“It was really brilliant,” the Nigeria international beamed. “You could see how we acted on the bench and all the fans. It was really amazing because we actually needed it.

“We know it is very tight at the moment with the fact that the last game was not the best game, but we knew if we could get this, it's really amazing because it gives us more steps ahead. It was really good.”

Ndidi had a perfect view of the winning goal, which sparked jubilant scenes in the dugout as well as in the away end, having been substituted shortly before Dewsbury-Hall squared the ball for Winks to strike in stoppage-time. He also played a major part in the first goal, with the Nigerian’s cross stood up for Academy graduate Dewsbury-Hall to emphatically head home.

He explained: “We saw everything from the throw-in and then the breakthrough. I can actually remember everything from Kel (Kelechi Iheanacho) to Kiernan [Dewsbury-Hall] and then Kiernan to Harry [Winks]. It was really amazing because even the reaction on the bench when the ball was going, we were all on our feet and it was good.

“I feel so good because we actually we do this and we know what we have to do. And it was good because when we have a ball like this, we know the opposition has to go in. It was actually very nice to see what we practice and everything show up in the game.”


'Really Amazing' - Ndidi's West Brom Verdict

Wilfred Ndidi speaks after playing a part in Leicester City's last-minute 2-1 success at West Bromwich Albion.

Starting the contest at The Hawthorns, it proved to be more vital minutes for the midfielder, who only returned from an injury lay-off after November’s international break. All focus will quickly turn to the next challenge, he assured, with Plymouth Argyle due at King Power Stadium on Saturday.

The 26-year-old added: “It was really good for me because I was laid back and then I just try to get more. That fitness and all was really good, to get 80 minutes.

“Of course this one is now passed so we have to look forward to the next one, get our shape together, and then we go on again.”
