Pearson accepts Foxes loss

15 September 2008 12:16
Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has urged his players to react positively to their first league defeat of the season, a 1-0 home loss to Millwall. The Foxes had previously won three and drawn one of their opening four games, but Pearson had few complaints over the result against the Lions. He told the Leicester Mercury: "If we wanted a reality check, this was it. "I was very disappointed. They came with a game-plan and we did not have the answers to it. "The levels of performance we have come up with so far really didn't happen for us this time. "They were a physical side and played a spoiling game very well. I never have a problem with that, it is not a criticism. "We have not done enough to deal with it and that is disappointing."
