Boss sounds Foxes caution

10 Aug 2008 - 12:10:16

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has warned his players not to get carried away despite their winning start to life in League One.

The Foxes were 2-0 winners over MK Dons in their first ever game in the third tier of the Football League but, despite being victorious in his first official game at the helm, Pearson sounded a note of caution to his players.

"In terms of the result, I am very pleased," he told the club's official website.

"What pleased me today was the fact that when the game got a little bit ugly we were resilient.

"The fans were fantastic today for us. To get over 23,000 and for them to be so vocal was a real boost for us and they will be a big help throughout the season.

"But like I have said before, we have to instigate the mood by playing winning football.

"It was always going to be a game in which we would be under pressure to get the right result.

"We have delivered today, but I certainly am not going to kid myself that there aren't going to be plenty more tough games ahead."
