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

Point Was Deserved - Pearson

Manager Nigel Pearson has said that following the draw with Watford today, a point was the least he felt our efforts deserved on the day.

Ten straight victories obviously wasn't to be, but it has been a fantastic run whilst it lasted, and we didn't lose so it's difficult to be too disappointed - we'll just do ten next time.

Watford certainly brought the game to us today and found themselves rather unexpectedly in the minds of many, two goals to the good, but Matty James gave us a foot back in the door just before the half time break and then in the second half Danny Drinkwater got us back on level terms.

Speaking to lcfc.com following the game, Pearson explained that he was slightly disappointed not to be able to give the fans that tenth straight win but, he feels being totally honest, it was a fantastic run and it was never going to last forever because football doesn't work that way.

'We're 11 unbeaten and I think we deserved at least a point today. We're disappointed with the goals we conceded, but you've got to give Watford credit for the way they set up against us - they were disciplined and made it hard for us. For us to come away with something is a positive outcome for us because we played exceptionally well today.'

Pearson says that given the position we are in, the aim for the run in until the end of the season is to simply get our performances right, and we did that, and if we keep doing it whilst not every game will end in three points for us, like today it can at least end with a point to show - a point being better than nothing at all.

'If we do that I'm sure we'll be able to get enough results to achieve what we want.'
