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."

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
