'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Resilience Pleases Pearson

Manager Nigel Pearson has again praised the team's resilience following a tough encounter against Ipswich today.

David Nugent continued his remarkable scoring run at Portman Road by grabbing a brace on the day, but Leicester had to come from behind having conceded the early goal in the game.

Winning two one ultimately, Pearson told lcfc.com that he was delighted with how the players reacted to going a goal down and he was especially pleased with how the half time substitutions helped change around our fortunes.

'It was a good result for us. In the first half we struggled to find any rhythm. Their goal unsettled us and was a set back. But at 1-0 you're always in it, especially with the players that we have.'

Pearson goes on to say that even being a goal down, knowing the pace we had within the squad and being an away game, being able to focus a little bit more on counter attacking play was always a bonus for us and helped give the players belief to go on again and get back into things.

He also believes both teams were playing to win, neither were that cagey and he suspects that for the neutral it will have been a good game, but he knows it wasn't our best performance in the first half and that will be addressed, especially the errors we were making.

The second half however was ours really, and by the end of it we were more than worthy of the three points on the day in his eyes.

Another good result and we keep eeking them out don't we, we've also again bounced back in the best possible way following the defeat to Nottingham Forest before the international break which will no doubt be of huge pleasure to the gaffer.
