Dale Stephens says Albion were disappointed to lose 2-0 against Leicester at the Amex.

Albion headed into the game having won their last three at home.

However they never really got going against the high-flying Foxes.

Stephens said: “We are disappointed to lose.

“We did some things well and some things not so well, but we learn and move forward.

“We look forward to a tough period of games.”

There were a couple of key moments in the game, which could have sent the game either way.

With the score at 1-0 Neal Maupay went down in the box under the challenge of Ricardo Pereira.

However, referee Mike Dean waved away the protests.

Then ten minutes later substitute Demarai Gray went down from a challenge by Adam Webster and Dean pointed to the spot.

There looked to very minimal contact compared to the Maupay one, but Stephens says Albion cannot complain.

He said: “To be honest I have not seen any of them back.

“The referee has made a decision and it what is, so you just have to get on with it.

“You can’t really complain too much there is a lot of analysis around decisions now with VAR coming in and you have just got to accept decisions for what they are.”

One player who made an impact on the game for the Foxes was Jamie Vardy.

The 32-year-old striker set up Azoye Perez for the first goal and then scored the penalty to confirm the three points and Stephens was not surprised by Vardy’s impact.

He said: “It was no surprise, we knew he would be a threat.

“He got in a couple of times and he punished us towards the end.

“We probably didn’t play well enough to shut him out and get anything out of the game.”
