Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate admitted losing a late goal to go down 1-0 at home to Leicester felt worse than the recent 5-0 drubbing by West Brom.

Boro battered Leicester in a second-half blitz but could not break the visitors down and were made to pay when the visitors broke out and grabbed a winner through Lloyd Dyer seven minutes from time.

"It was a smash-and-grab raid," said Southgate. "At the end it felt worse than West Brom. That time we never looked like scoring, we played poorly and we got what we deserved."

He added: "But we created chance after chance, dominated the game and their keeper has made some brilliant saves.

"I can't fault the team because they did everything you could ask and it looked like there was only one team going to score. We are bitterly disappointed."
