Pearson - Hails Discipline

Pearson - Hails Discipline

Manager Nigel Pearson hailed both the consistency of the team and their discipline following on from today's victory over Queens Park Rangers.

Speaking to lcfc.com after Leicester secured a record breaking 28th win of the season today, courtesy of striker David Nugent's 19th league goal of the campaign, he explained.

'It was a tight game and technically a very good game as well, but I just thought we dominated the best periods of the game, as simple as that. I think we showed a lot of understanding of playing different systems, we changed it around today and looked very comfortable. They were a decent side, with a lot of good players but we were able to keep their chances to a minimum and for the most part we dominated play. We were pleased to get back to winning ways because it takes us that one step closer now to achieving what we set out to achieve.'

With today being our 28th win of the season, it broke the record we set in the League 1 title winning season back in 2008/09, where we won 27 matches that campaign, and the victory now means we are only a further three points from securing the Championship title.

Having secured promotion on a day we didn't play a game the other week, we can also ironically now secure the title on Monday evening if Wigan beat Burnley, which will both delight and annoy the players, as people have already said that they'd have preferred to have won promotion and celebrated it in the moment at full time.

However, if that result doesn't fall for us, we can do it during a game when we played Bolton on Tuesday, should emerge victorious.

Going back to the 28th win though, Pearson said it's just a testament to the quality and the consistency that the side have displayed all season long and he admits that although our levels have dropped since promotion was secured, it was good to see us getting back to our best today and hopefully that's the vain we will now finish the season on as we look to secure the title anyway we can as well.
