Oppositions View: Pearson Targets Play-Offs

Oppositions View: Pearson Targets Play-Offs

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson says that his side are heading for the play-offs after the Fox`s beat Birmingham 3-1 last night.

Leicester had to come from a goal down after a good start by Blues, but once the equaliser had gone in, there only looked like there was going to be one winner.

Jermaine Beckford and Jeff Schlupp came up with the goals with Beckford getting the first for Leicester and the third to send Blues home pointless.

The Fox`s boss had already identified the game against Birmingham as one they must win to stand a chance of making the play-offs before the game.

After the game, he told reporters: 'Credit to the players, it was a good performance and a good result, we needed it.

'The plot thickens as, again, there'll be some strange results in weeks to come so although we've had some frustrating times along the length and breadth of the country, I'm sure there will be sets of players, managers and fans feeling very similar.

'We've got to concentrate on ourselves and certainly if our performance levels are in keeping with tonight and our ability to deal with disappointment like we had to tonight then we've still got a real fighting chance, that's the most important thing.'
