Pearson - Deflated After Chelsea Loss

Pearson - Deflated After Chelsea Loss

Nigel Pearson has said the Foxes should've worked Chelsea harder during our 5-2 loss today.

Speaking to lcfc.com Pearson was pleased with our late comeback to get on the scoresheet twice, but he thinks we could've done much more in the early stages of the game and made a real go of it.

'Some of our attacking play was very good, but some of our defending was awful. We talked about making them work hard to get on top, but we had to quickly change our sharpe because we didn't handle the ball well enough. We conceded from a free header and were caught on the counter attack. You can't make life difficult for yourselves against a side like Chelsea.'

Overall Pearson is clearly disappointed at the manner of our loss.

'It's very disappointing to go out in the fashion we have. It was a frustrating afternoon. I'm not saying the players didn't have a go, but we made poor errors today that have cost us dearly.'

Despite all that, Pearson couldn't have been prouded of the travelling 6000 who more than did us proud.

'For the fans, I think we have to acknowledge the contribution they've made all season, but that today was absolutely outstanding.'

It might not have been the way we'd have wanted our FA Cup dream to end, but credit where it's due for having such a decent run and taking it seriously when clearly our aim is promotion.

Whether the cup has been a distraction or an enjoyment for the team, as fans the same again next year would be nice.
