On-loan Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies admitted he had a debut to forget as they crashed out of the Carling Cup 1-0 at home to Leicester.
Davies did not impress himself at Villa Park
Davies, who was substituted with 10 minutes remaining, said: "I was just awful. I didn't contribute anything.
"I've been bigging myself up, saying I'm ready and obviously I'm not. I'm not good enough to get in the team yet.
"I'm honest with myself in every performance and that was rubbish - I looked like a pub team player."
Matt Fryatt scored City's winner from an acute angle with 16 minutes left.
