Manager Nigel Pearson accepted the slice of luck his Leicester City side needed to secure a 3-2 victory at Huddersfield Town at the weekend.
The Foxes threw away a two-goal lead against the Terriers, before a scrappy Lloyd Dyer strike in the final minute proved decisive.
Pearson told the Leicester Mercury: "Every team needs a bit of good fortune, whether you are at the top or down at the bottom.
"When you concede a two-goal lead, there is some doubt as to whether you can recover the momentum and go on, but we did.
"It was a case of putting the ball into danger areas right to the end of the game and we got a fluky goal at a time when I would think the two managers were probably settling for a draw.
"Some may have opinions of which side deserved what, but all I am interested in is that we have come away with three points.
"Certainly I have experienced days where we haven't got what I feel we deserved."
