Zak Whitbread and Martyn Waghorn put the Foxes 2-0 up before Theo Robinson replied, but David Nugent then came off the bench to score twice and secure a victory that lifts Leicester back up to third in the table.

"It was an outstanding start to the game for us. I think that's the best we've played," said Pearson.

"We totally dominated and to get two goals in that period was fully deserved.

"I was a bit disappointed that we were only one goal ahead at half-time, but I think we kept our composure well in the second half."

Pearson also singled out Waghorn, adding: "Over the last two or three weeks he's put in some very good performances for us.

"He's certainly contributed in a very positive manner and I think scoring his first goal, when we beat Ipswich, took a bit of pressure off him."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
