Pearson expects response

Manager Nigel Pearson is confident his Leicester City side can bounce back from Wednesday's 2-0 defeat at Tranmere Rovers and put their promotion push back on track. The Foxes lost for the first time in 24 games at Prenton Park but are still nine points clear at the top of the table. "It is always disappointing when a run comes to an end, especially as we have worked so hard. We went out with a whimper really," admitted Pearson. "We will now have to take stock and prepare for another important game on Saturday. "Our players are always under pressure to win games as we should not be in this league. "We have got to see the season through and make sure we are promoted."
