Kira did nothing wrong

Thanks for the reply!They've performed like that throughout the match. They haven't gotten much defensive support from the midfield, and the full backs have been beaten way too easily. To see them hold their own in such a situation is a great sign of their ability and composure.
Garner, Galbraith, and Mejbri have struggled to defend against Leicester's midfield. I'm quite surprised by Garner, especially, given that he did start off as a centre back. None of the midfielders have done a good job in plugging the spaces and winning the ball. That's understandable for Galbraith and Mejbri given that the Leicester players are physically ahead of them, but Garner should do better given that he's grown and played a bit of senior football already.
I was hoping our midfield would do more considering, as @limerickcitykid says above, two of them are knocking on the 1st team. Aside from one run into the box from Galbraith and a one-two that resulted in a shot by Garner, they've been too quiet.
