Pearson Keeps Perspective

Pearson Keeps Perspective

With manager Nigel Pearson not getting too carried away with our wins in pre season so far, he's certainly not going to get carried away with the draw against Preston earlier today.

Speaking to lcfc.com following the game, Pearson did admit some disappointment because he knows the players didn't reach the levels of standards that he expects from them in games - irrespective of whether they are competitive or not - but he admitted he wasn't going to let that disappointment get in the way of what pre season is all about.

'We were slightly off the pace today. Not as fluid as we have been, but you can't read too much into pre season games. I like us to win as often as possible as it's a good habit to have, but when you don't quite find the fluidity you're looking for, it's a lesson to us that we have to be at full tilt.'

The gaffer goes on to say that with it being pre season you have to 'apply some perspective' because it's about fitness, working hard and getting the application right and working on tactics and things for you to take into the season and even when the hard work and application is right in football, it doesn't always mean you'll be at your flowing best.

With the big kick off nearing now, and games left against MK Dons and Rotherham on Monday and Tuesday of next week, Pearson says that those two games will feature split squads because he wants everybody to get through 90 minutes now as that's the next step of our fitness work but following on from the precautionary substitution of Jamie Vardy, it remains to be seen if he'll figure.

'He's had a tight thigh and I want him available for the start of the season. I see no mileage in putting players in a situation where there's potential for them to injure themselves. It was just a precaution.'
