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."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
