Pearson: Foxes were below-par

Manager Nigel Pearson admitted Leicester City were below-par and happy to escape with a share of the spoils following Sunday's 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town . The Foxes were caught cold after just 20 seconds when Jack Colback crossed and Ryan McGivern turned the ball into his own net from close range. Steve Howard restored parity in the 38th minute and afterwards Pearson was happy to escape with a point. "I don't think we were anywhere near our best today and it was a scrappy game," he admitted. "To concede a goal so early in the game put us on edge and we didn't do ourselves justice. "I thought they came with a gameplan and they wanted to slow it down. But I think overall I'll take a point because we have been well below-par today."
