Nigel Pearson: Leicester manager insists he will be in charge at Brighton on Sat

The Foxes have slipped to seventh in the Championship table after going seven matches without a win and that has led to speculation that Pearson could be sacked before Saturday's game at Brighton.

However, Pearson says he is happy with his situation at Leicester under owners Aiyawatt and Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and will remain in charge for the trip to Sussex.

He told the Leicester Mercury: "They (the owners) have been very supportive as they always are.

"I have had contact. They are good people, they have invested an awful lot in this club, and that's not just finances, and for sure, they will be wanting better results than we have had at the moment.

"But I know that I have their support and that is really all that is important to me.

"I am in contact with my bosses and I know my own situation and I also know that they have been very supportive throughout the season.

"We've got to get down to Brighton so we will be leaving before Saturday but the only journey I'll be making is on the team coach with the team."
