Pearson refuses to get carried away
Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has warned his players not to relax even after they sealed their third win in a row by beating Swansea City 2-0 on Saturday.
The Foxes had beaten West Ham and West Brom in their last two matches and, although they remain in the bottom three, they are now only behind Hull City on goal difference.
Leonardo Ulloa, who wasn't named in Leicester's initial starting XI but started when David Nugent picked up an injury in the warm-up, broke the deadlock in the 15th minute when he fired a shot into the bottom corner of the net from Wes Morgan's knock down.
To get three wins on trot in this division is very hard and doubly so considering the position we are in. We are delighted.Nigel Pearson
Andy King scored Leicester's second in the closing stages when he was on hand to turn the rebound home after Lukasz Fabianki had made a hash of keeping Esteban Cambiasso's free-kick out.
"The danger is people start believing the job is done," said Pearson. "It is far from it.
"To get three wins on the trot in this division is very hard and doubly so considering the position we are in. We are delighted.
"We have still got six games left and we have to get as many points as possible from them, which is going to be a big challenge. Our fate is still in our hands, which is how we want to keep it for as long as possible."
Leicester are 1.001 to be relegated this season while Hull are 1.001 to go down.
