Wagner bemoans crucial first goal

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Craig Smithson

David Wagner said the first goal was crucial as his Huddersfield Town side crashed to a 3-0 defeat at Leicester City on Monday.

The Terriers chief watched as his side held their own for just over 50 minutes at the King Power Stadium, before Riyad Mahrez's fine volley inspired the Foxes to go on and wrap up what looked like a comfortable win courtesy of further goals from Islam Slimani and Marc Albrighton.

Wagner felt the first goal was crucial in the game and said it summed up the Premier League.

He said: "Absolutely, this was the case, and unfortunately we didn't score the first one. The first half was even, we looked good, aggressive and kept them away from our goal.

"Even we know, after 22 games in the Premier League, the small margins decide the game. Unfortunately we weren't able to use the margins in our favour.

"It was a clear result but for 60 minutes it wasn't a clear game."
