Pearson Delighted With Opening Day Point

Pearson Delighted With Opening Day Point

Manager Nigel Pearson has said he was utterly delighted with our performance against Everton and he felt we were worthy of the opening day point we gained in the game.

First match back in the Premier League in a decade could've only been better had we secured a victory, but in tough game a point was probably fair and certainly gave us good positives ahead of the season and challenges we have ahead of us.

Even the simple fact of battling back to level terms having been behind twice bodes well for the spirit and attitude within the camp.

Speaking to lcfc.com following the game, a happy gaffer explained.

'I think for Leo coming with the talk about how much he's cost, he's valued very much among the group of players. I'm very pleased for him to get off the mark. For Woody on the back of a week with the amount of speculation surrounding his own personal situation it speaks volumes for the lad that he can come on and having one chance took it very, very well.'

Pearson goes on to say all in all really it was a 'very good day' not only for those two, but for the club, however he's keeping it all in perspective and enjoying it, but not getting carried away because he saw plenty we could improve upon and that will be his focus.

'I think we thoroughly deserved to get something out of the game. There was an element of misfortune about both their goals in the sense that Kasper made a great save from the initial melee. The second one, again was a deflection in off the ball so I thought we'd done ever so well to respond, I think it's a testament to the players' spirit.'

Pearson ends by saying that the only thing that really matters now moving forward is to keep improving and build on this point because there will obviously be games where we don't get something for our efforts, but if we build and keep improving we will obviously improve our chances of picking up the wins we need and want.
