Wes Morgan refuses to dwell on Leicester City's first home defeat
Captain Wes Morgan said Leicester City must not dwell on their first home defeat of the season after they went down 2-1 to Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium.
Although Morgan admitted City looked jaded and were way off their best form, he urged his team-mates to take heart from the way they had played in their previous seven-game unbeaten run.
City are still second in the Championship and Morgan said they had to get back to their best at Watford on Saturday.
"We have to reflect on our previous performances," he said.

"We have been in fantastic form and we have gone all this time winning games at home, and this is only our first defeat.
"We can't go into the next game with our heads down. We have to pick ourselves up and get back to our best.
"We will be working hard in training this week because we will be aiming to get back to winning ways at Watford."
Morgan admitted that City were lacking their usual spark against Palace.
Although he believed that City got the raw end of some refereeing decisions, he said Palace deserved their victory.
"It was very disappointing to suffer our first home defeat," he said. "The lads were feeling it in the changing room.
"I thought the boys looked jaded. We weren't at our best and we can certainly play better.
"Palace came out and played very well. You can't take anything away from them. They got the goals at the right time and we had a lot to do in the second half, perhaps too much. We played much better in the second half but couldn't get the goals.
"It is very disappointing, that the goals came from set-pieces. The first one, Kasper (Schmeichel) went for it and he was blocked by their players, and everyone thought it should have been a free-kick.
"But we didn't get it so we won't moan about it, but it should have been a free-kick.
"But to concede from another corner was very disappointing, and that is something we need to work on in training.
"We should have had a penalty. We have seen it on the video and all the boys are saying it is a definite handball. We didn't get it, so there's no point dwelling on it.
"The referee was not on our side and some decisions should have gone our way.
"You can't take anything away from Palace. They were very good."
