The Foxes lost more ground on the Championship's top two with Saturday's 1-0 loss at The Den, leaving them five points behind second-placed Crystal Palace and a further two points adrift of league leaders Cardiff.

"We are still well in the shake-up," said Pearson, whose team are fifth in the table.

"It is very tight above us. I have a good handle on the perspective.

"It was a missed opportunity against Millwall but we are in and amongst it."

Leicester host Cardiff at the weekend before a Boxing Day trip to fourth-placed Hull, Pearson's former club.

The Foxes boss added: "We have two games coming up and, if we beat them, we can make a big impact because they are teams around us in the table."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
