Pearson: Molineux trip is tough

Nigel Pearson has no illusions about the challenge his Leicester side will face at Wolves on Sunday in the "relentlessly tough" Championship.

The Foxes have yet to win away this season while Wolves, though they only have four points out of four games, are unbeaten in their two home matches.

Pearson, whose side have taken six points, is expecting a hard physical encounter.

He told the club's website: "It's a tough fixture for us, but we're confident and the spirit amongst the players is very good.


"I expect the match to be a pretty physical and fast contest, so we have to be ready for that, but our players are in good spirits and it's important we go there confident, but clear in our minds that we have a very difficult job to do there.

"It's about us making sure we replicate the performances we've had so far. If we do that, more often than not we will get results.

"We're in a results business and my remit is to get us into the Premier League. I know that, but there will be other managers in the same position. We don't want to drop points, but it is a relentlessly tough league.

"It's important not to get overly frustrated that the results aren't going your way if you know you're playing well. I've got to have an overall balanced view on the pathway we're taking."

Leicester have no new injury concerns following the two-week international break.

Wolves should have a trio of players back in contention after recent injuries: full-back Kevin Foley, Togolese winger Razak Boukari and Icelandic striker Bjorn Sigurdarson.

Kick-off is at 1.15pm.
