Nigel Pearson: Happy with the firepower he has at his disposal

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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
