Adams consoles Walker
Leicester manager Micky Adams
Leicester boss Micky Adams refused to criticise Ian Walker after his error allowed Bolton to snatch a 1-1 draw.

The Leicester goalkeeper allowed Kevin Davies' shot to slip from his grasp to concede a dreadful own goal after Les Ferdinand had given Leicester the lead.

Adams said: "Ian will look back at that and feel very disappointed but he has kept us in enough games in the past.

"I've certainly not come here to criticise him although he will feel that he should have done better."

Adams admitted the effort and commitment shown by his side in the draw may not be enough to keep Leicester in the top flight.

He said: "I'm pleased with the effort of the side and provided we give that then I don't think there can be too many complaints.

"Whether we are good enough or not will have to be seen.

"I don't think at this level you can just get away with effort and commitment but I have known that since day one.

"In the Premiership you need imagination and a bit of craft and flair and you are not going to get that with 11 free transfers."
