Pearson - Usual High Standards For Bolton

Pearson - Usual High Standards For Bolton

Manager Nigel Pearson has called on the Leicester side to show their usual high standards as we face Bolton Wanderers tonight.

Leicester are exactly three points off mathematically securing the Championship title for 2013-14 and it would be our seventh title at this level, and a fantastic way to cap off having already secured promotion.

We also still have the 100 point barrier within reach, and Pearson also wants us to conquer that mini challenge this season.

Speaking to lcfc.com the gaffer does know however that Bolton will be a very tough game as they have only lost once in their last 13 games, and he explained.

'I think it's important that we try to keep our standards high and I think the players recognise the situation now that we want to try and get as many points as possible between now and the end of the season. Our preparation will be as normal as possible. With three games to go we've put ourselves into a very strong position, but we want to be as selfish as possible, and that is to try to pick up as many points as possible.'

Of course the league title could've been decided yesterday had Burnley lost to Wigan, but to keep things interesting they won, so the players do now get the opportunity they hoped for, and that we missed with guaranteed promotion.

They get to celebrate it, should we achieve it, at full time. The only disappointment in some ways is, should it happen tonight, it would've been nicer had it been on home soil.

'To win 28 league games in a season is a tremendous achievement, but we want to try to improve that again. Our objectives are very selfish. We want to win the league and finish the season feeling good about our performances. It really is very much the case of the next time that we play, I want the side to go out and perform.'

One thing Pearson wouldn't be drawn on, having already commented when giving an update about Jeffrey Schlupp that he would be 'managing the team' as the season closes out, is whether he was planning changes for the match - but in any event he knows we have to go out there with a positive mindset and the belief that we have shown all season long.

Let's hope it's an interesting night for all the right reasons and we cap this campaign off with a huge smile.
