Pearson Pleased With Bremen Performance

Pearson Pleased With Bremen Performance

Manager Nigel Pearson said he was left a happy man following our performance in the narrow victory over Werder Bremen earlier today.

A one nil victory courtesy of a Wes Morgan goal was enough to give us our sixth victory of the pre season campaign and everybody will be going into the season opener against Everton now in good confidence and spirit.

Speaking to lcfc.com following the game the gaffer believes our overall showing should've resulted in a more comfortable victory, but he does acknowledge we needed Kasp to be in good form given some of the chances they fashioned in the game as well.

'It was a good all round performance - I think in terms of how we set up today, we were the better side. All the players that got on the field gave a really good account of themselves. All in all I was very pleased with his we played, the intensity of the performance and I think throughout it we looked very competent and very encouraging moving forward.'

Having had such a good pre season campaign and being pleased with it, the gaffer obviously knows that whilst we can take confidence from that, that's about all we can as otherwise it counts for nothing and will certainly count for nothing unless we get the results we are looking for when the Premier League season kicks off properly.

'I can't really affect how other people perceive pre season games but I know that for the most part what we got out of them and the training as an exercise for us as a squad has been what we want. I'm not daft, pre season games don't win or lose you any points so it all comes down to what we do next week.'

The gaffer also says that had we come through and not remained unbeaten, his thoughts wouldn't change on that score either as the results are immaterial for him and the team, other than the confidence shot, results only really count for the fans themselves as they get excited about the coming season.
