& # 39; We were always surprised & # 39 ;: George Ford never doubted Leicester after the crucial win in Newcastle
- Leicester won their first real away game in the Eredivisie season on Friday
- Captain-for-the-night Ford said the Tigers never panicked during a lean spell
- Eight points away from Liverpool with three games to go
George Ford maintains that Leicester has not been deterred by the specter of relegation – and that the only way to beat Newcastle is.
The Tigers won their first real away game on Friday in the Premier League season to finish ninth thanks to two attempts by Guy Thompson, who also provided an assist for Jonny May.
And the Ford captain said that Leicester had never panicked.
George Ford insists that Leicester has not been deterred by the specter of relegation
& # 39; I know there's a lot of talk about where we are in the competition, relegation, and so on, but it didn't come once in our glossary in meetings or thoughts around the place. We always said that these last four games were 20 points available – we look up, not behind us.
& # 39; If you look behind you, you can get even more involved. But the result was vital. The feeling is now more relief than happiness. & # 39;
Ford admitted: & # 39; It is such a difficult place to come with the position we are in. I am proud of the fight we have shown. At the end it could have gone either way.
& # 39; We are not kidding ourselves, but the pioneers have left us there with the difficult end. & # 39;
