Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno says he's gutted his newborn son's first experience of football was Leicester City's crushing play-off defeat to Watford. Sege missed last Sunday's match at Vicarage Road as his son Ennio Silva was born just 24 hours beforehand. He told Sky Sports' Soccer AM, while appearing on the show with bandmate Tom Meighan yesterday, that he was devastated his son had seen the defeat on television. "I had a son on the Saturday," he told the show. "I had to pick him up on the Sunday and they said I had to be there at 12.30pm, which was kick-off time. I looked at Amy and she was like 'no chance'. "So I picked him up, got home with about 10 minutes to play and sat him in front of the telly." City lost the match after Anthony Knockaert's penalty and re-bound was saved by Watford keeper Manuel Almunia and the home side then went up the other end of the pitch and scored. Serge said: "We got the penalty and I'm doing the walk from the kitchen to the lounge thinking 'someone's got to get the minibus to Wembley, someone's got to get the face paint, we'll do a stop off at Toddington services...' We were there. "I went back in the lounge and I thought I'm not going to tell the boy about football. I'm just not going to tell him. He doesn't need to know. "One day old and he's already seen that!" The two front men of the Leicestershire-based band appeared on the show, just a few days after Tom had appeared in the Mercury how heart-breaking City's defeat was. He said on yesterday's show: "It was horrible. "I've kind of put it out of the back of my mind now. You dwell on it for a few days and you forget about it. It's happened now. "I was behind the goal and it was a complete panic for 30 seconds. I was there with my old man and everyone was euphoric when he went down and [the referee] pointed to the spot. "He stepped up and my old man said 'he hasn't scored yet' and turned the other way because everyone was celebrating. "He hit, it was saved, we didn't get the rebound and they went down the other end and it was just crazy. "It was just horrible, devastating. It was up there with the finals at Wembley we lost. There was a kid behind me crying before we even took the penalty! He was about 11 years old and I was like 'come on mate'. "As soon as they pitch invaded we left the ground. We were gone. Devastating."
