Leicester manager Nigel Pearson admitted his side must probably win all four of their remaining Championship games if they are to make the play-offs after they were held 2-2 at home by Birmingham.

A Curtis Davies own goal saw Leicester take an early lead at the King Power Stadium before Nikola Zigic equalised just after the hour mark.

Jeff Schlupp then looked to have ended their eight-match winless run when he headed them back in front only for Birmingham substitute Chris Burke to score a last-minute penalty after David Nugent was adjudged to have fouled Wes Thomas inside the area.

Pearson's side must now play eighth-place Bolton on Tuesday night followed by games with Crystal Palace, Watford and Nottingham Forest, sides who are currently fourth, third and fifth in the table respectively.

"We probably have to win all four of our remaining matches now. It's do-able," said Pearson.

"We've got to win the next game, but then we've been saying that for a while now.

"We've created enough chances to win this game comfortably and really we should have won the game.

"After Brighton at the weekend, that's two games running now that we've conceded equalising goals late in the game and had to settle for a draw.

"It's difficult to swallow. The mistakes that we are making at the moment are costing us dearly."

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.
