The Foxes saw their failure to turn pressure into goals cost them another two points on Saturday as they were held 1-1 at home by Burnley.

A stalemate against a fellow promotion chaser is no bad thing, but Leicester know they could have taken more from the contest.

Pearson concedes as much, but does not believe that he is in need of added firepower.

He saw David Nugent score his 11th goal of the season against the Clarets, Jamie Vardy put in another lively performance and has Chris Wood to welcome back into his plans in the New Year.

Pearson told the Leicester Mercury: "I am not necessarily looking to bring in a striker.

"It depends on whether you can afford it and who is available.

"I don't want a striker who isn't as good as what we have got. There are plenty of strikers out there, but are they better than what we have got?

"Chris Wood will be four to six weeks. We have two weeks before the window opens, so we will see what we are like then."

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
