Speaking after the defeat at Leicester, the Norwegian admitted his side's recent run of poor results was unacceptable, suggesting he will be left with no choice but to make changes to his team set-up.

"Lately we have not been in great form - lost too many points and that is something we have to look at," SunSport quoted him saying.
"We might have to change - do we need more legs in there? What do we need?
"I pick the team, Harry Maguire showed no reaction and I hold my hand up if that does not work out. If we concede four, I probably made a bad decision," he added.
