Matty James says Leicester City should be more clinical

Leicester City must become more clinical, insists Matty James.

The midfielder said that a lack of a killer instinct and bad luck cost them their FA Cup place at the hands of Huddersfield on Tuesday. But he believes City will soon bounce back to the kind of form they displayed in January, when they won five consecutive league games.

James said he didn't feel there was too much wrong with City's performances in the 2-1 defeats by the Terriers.

"At times, I thought we played some good stuff," he said.

"We discussed in the dressing room how we weren't clinical enough. When you are not clinical teams can punish you. They had one or two chances and took them. If we don't take our chances then we are to blame.

"We have been unlucky in our last two games. The performances have been decent but we haven't been clinical enough.

"I don't think there is a problem because, if we keep making the chances, then at some point we are going to take them.

"We have to just make sure that if we aren't taking the chances we are more solid at the back."

James said there was an element of good fortune about Sean Scannell's winner for Huddersfield on Tuesday.

The striker picked up the ball on the halfway line and was able to race towards the City box. He cut inside both James and Paul Konchesky before slipping the ball between goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel's legs.

"He is quite quick and strong," said James, who tried to shepherd Scannell down the touchline.

"I have shown him the line to keep him on his left foot. Konch has come across and it has ricocheted back to him. He has the momentum in front of me and put it through Kasper's legs. There was an element of luck about it."
