Clean sheet pleases Pearson

18 August 2008 03:15
Boss Nigel Pearson is content with the way his Leicester City side have started their first-ever season in the third tier of English football. The Foxes have yet to concede a goal in three games, although they were held to a goalless draw at Stockport County at the weekend. Pearson told the Leicester Mercury: "We did everything we could to try to win but it didn't quite fall for us. I am not one for getting uptight about things like that. "I have every confidence in my players that, firstly, we are creating chances and, secondly, we are getting in the right areas. "On another day we will finish them, so we will take it on the chin this time. I am sure we will win games this season when we maybe don't deserve to. "But in this one there is no doubt in my mind that we were by far the better side and finished the game exceptionally strongly. "The clean sheet was pleasing. It really does give you a sound foundation."
