Petty Elated With Cup Victory

Ben Petty spoke to LCFC TV after his side's 3-0 win over Hertha Berlin in the Premier League International Cup.

“I thought the lads did really well tonight. We practise set plays religiously before a game. We’ve worked really hard this season to be harder to play against.”

Overall, Petty has been delighted with the improved results of this season with City carrying an increased threat in front of goal and managing to keep their opposition at bay.

“We’ve been more solid, we have kept more clean sheets and that work is coming to fruition now,” he added, following Leicester’s second successive clean sheet.

This International Cup allows you to pay at the stadiums against foreign opposition and we have all enjoyed it. We’re delighted with their progress.
