Pearson - Now For 100 Points

Pearson - Now For 100 Points

With the title now taken care of, manager Nigel Pearson has said our task from the Huddersfield Town game this weekend will be to take another step closer to breaking the 100 points mark for the season.

Sitting on 96 points, with only two games remaining, to keep the dream of hitting three figures this season we have to take something from the game, and a win is better than a draw.

Speaking to lcfc.com having been delighted to see us equal another record - the 96 points - Pearson now wants us to break another record and take the 100 if we can.

'That's (100 points) something that we've spoken about and I think the players would like to do that as well. Winning the league is an important thing for the players to be able to reflect back on in years to come too. The financial rewards are there for everyone to see these days at the top end of football, but it's also nice to have those small gold medals. It's important that the players still aspire to win things.'

With that said, Pearson knows that Huddersfield will be another tough test for us and it's a game we cannot take lightly. With them now safe from relegation this season following their last game, he expects them to play without fear and pressure now and look to end the season on a high and pull themselves as far up the table as they can.

The gaffer admits it's one of those games that could go either way really, but his approach will be to play well, gain another good result and his message to the players will be that even though we've reached our aims, our target is now the 100 points and that's something we have to strive for, not only to take the league seriously still, and not only for the paying fans, but for themselves to not look back with regrets.

'I want us to finish strongly, be selfish and continue with the type of form that's allowed us to win what is a very tough league.'
