Brendan Rodgers was relieved to see Leicester halt their rotten run of defeats after Harvey Barnes snatched a point in a 1-1 Premier League draw at Brentford.The Foxes were staring at a sixth straight loss in all competitions, a run which has seen them slide towards the relegation zone, when Mathias Jensen fired Brentford ahead.But Barnes showed the Bees’ defence a clean pair of heels as he raced on to James Maddison’s through-ball to score a fine second-half equaliser.“It breaks the cycle of results we were on and I think we thoroughly deserved it,” said Rodgers.“In the second half we looked like the team who would go on and win it.
I’m very pleased with the spirit.“We had to defend a lot of set pieces and we did very well. Harry Souttar got his head to everything.
We got a very good goal and looked like we could go on to win the game.”Rodgers made a bold call by dropping goalkeeper Danny Ward in favour of Daniel Iversen, but his wait for a first clean sheet since the World Cup break goes on.“It’s important to give a goalkeeper a good run of games and Danny Ward deserved that,” added Rodgers.“But I had a long conversation with him before the Chelsea game in terms of what I expect, the standard I expect, and what I want from a goalkeeper, and I just felt after the Chelsea game I wanted to make the change,” added Rodgers.“Daniel is a good shot stopper, good on crosses and has a calmness to him.
Wardy took it great, we had an honest conversation, he’s disappointed at how he’s done.“He can reflect on it now. Daniel will come in and get a run of games.Read more on independent.co.uk
