Defeat Cuts A Frustrated Pearson

Defeat Cuts A Frustrated Pearson

Manager Nigel Pearson couldn't hide his disappointment following the cruel one nil defeat to Doncaster today, thanks to an uncharacteristic own goal buy goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The Denmark international failed to deal with a cross in the 17th minute of the game, and he unfortunately turned the ball back into his own net.

Leicester do remain in third place in the league following the defeat and we obviously lose our five match unbeaten run now, as we just couldn't muster enough to get back into the game despite having more chances and even seeing midfielder Danny Drinkwater strike the post.

Speaking to lcfc.com following the game, the gaffer explained.

'I think the reality is that we have to look at the game and say we've probably not played with the quality we have had at times. We've not created enough opportunities today. Our best spell was 20 minutes, but we looked as though we didn't have enough ideas. We were a bit laboured and things broke down too easily.'

Despite all that, especially as Doncaster hardly created any chances of their own, Pearson knows that we should've been walking out of the game with at least a share of the points and it did take an individual error to swing the game, and unfortunately these things happen in football from time to time.

The gaffer certainly won't overreact again because our form has been good, we've shown what we can do and he expects us to do that and bounce back from this loss like we did the other loss of the campaign and get ourselves back on a good run of results.
