Chris Wood: Backing for Nigel Pearson

The Foxes sit seventh in the Championship table, just a point behind Bolton after a four-game unbeaten run.

Wood's nine-game goalless spell coincided with the promotion contenders falling out of the top six, but after finding the net in his last two outings, Wood is now in confident mood and fully behind his boss.

Wood said: "He's a great manager.

"He does the business. We just need to make sure we do the business."

"He gets his teams set up right and gets everything prepared well. We just have to go out there and execute it because Nigel gives us all the tools to do it."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
