Pearson looking for points

Manager Nigel Pearson admits Leicester need a victory quickly in

order to get their Championship promotion challenge back on


The Foxes are without a win in four matches and have won only

one of their last eight, losing four times during that


They face east midlands rivals Derby in Saturday evening’s

televised clash.

Pearson insists his side head to Pride Park with renewed

confidence, despite being denied victory at league leaders Cardiff

in midweek when the hosts equalised in the fourth minute of injury


“It is a game we need to win,” Pearson told Press Association

Sport. “Recently results, not necessarily performances, have been

indifferent and it is important that we get back to winning ways as

soon as we can.

“We should have won at Cardiff. We went to the league leaders

and out-played them on their own patch.

“Confidence has been lacking recently but I think we will go

into the game against Derby feeling a bit better about


“We have turned a few corners a few times this season when

people have started to doubt us and we believe we can do it
