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

Pearson - One Step Closer To 100

Manager Nigel Pearson has said that the squad underlined their quality in the two nil victory over Huddersfield yesterday and he was delighted to see us move on to 99 points in the league and take another step closer to breaking the 100 points mark.

Speaking to lcfc.com following goals from Gary Taylor-Fletcher and Wes Morgan, the gaffer said.

'I'm just delighted that we've illustrated that we've got a strong squad and they're capable of performing at this stage of the season. It can be difficult, but the players have got to try to enjoy the experience of being champions early. The only way you enjoy that is to play well and win. Hopefully we can do well again next week and maybe hit the 100 or 102 points mark.'

Having broken records this campaign, equalled others, secured promotion and been named as Champions, Pearson goes on to say that it's important the players still have something aim for over and above just another victory, and that's the importance now of setting the 100 points target, because when you have things to aim for it helps focus players in training and in games and it means our season won't fizzle out with nothing left to play for.

Having made six changes for the game, the gaffer goes on to say that having made those changes and then to see us perform like that really does give him optimism for the future.

If there was one disappointment to the season outside of some hiccupish results we've had, such as Brighton after securing promotion, he adds that he doesn't believe we have scored the number of goals we should've done given the chances that we've created all season and it is something he's discussed with the players, so the manner of the two goals yesterday also brought a smile to his face.

'We've scored two really good goals. It was a really good finish from Gary and for us to be able to finish the game a bit easier by getting a second goal was important for us.'
