Nigel Pearson: Big result for Leicester

The Foxes went into the match on a nine-game winless run and fell behind after just three minutes and a David Ngog penalty.

But Leicester turned the match around and twice took the lead to earn a vital victory at the King Power Stadium.

"The players worked very hard and showed a lot of character to come away with the three points," said Pearson.

"I'm pleased with the players but I'm also pleased for them after coming through to win on what could have been a potentially difficult night after falling behind so early to what was a soft penalty in my opinion.

"Bolton have been on a good run and we have been on a bad run and I'm sure some people would have felt 'here we go again'.

"But we showed a lot of character and a lot of moral fibre - and also a bit of quality too.

"However, I don't think that has particularly been lacking in recent games. In the games prior to this we have been unlucky and haven't got what we deserved, the margins are so small."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
