Kelly proud of Foxes

18 Jan 2007 - 09:40:25

Leicester City boss Rob Kelly claims the Foxes can hold their heads high, despite throwing away a two-goal lead to lose 4-3 to Fulham in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Foxes looked set to upset Premiership opposition in a replay when goals from Matt Fryatt, Gareth McAuley and James Wesolowski put them 3-1 up in the second half.

But Fulham refused to throw in the towel and fought back, before sealing their place in the fourth round through an injury-time Wayne Routledge winner.

"We come away from the game with great pride. We have matched an established Premiership outfit over two games," Kelly told the club's official website.

"I just feel so disappointed for the players and the supporters. We brought 3,000 fans here on a Wednesday night. A lot of them will have had to take time off work to be here and their support was outstanding.

"The reaction that they gave the players at the final whistle was brilliant - even though we had lost to a late goal.

"But to lose the game the way we did was a real sickening blow for everyone.

"We can take great credit from our performance, but that doesn't feel like any consolation at the moment."
