The manager of Leicester City, Nigel Pearson, has backed his team even after their poor performance in the last few matches. Leicester hasn’t won even one out of the last three matches. The Foxes lost two consecutive matches and then, in their last match, they played goalless draw against Blackpool.
The Foxes were at no. 2 in the Championship points table last month and they were looking in a very good position to make it to the Premier League. But, their form deteriorated this month. They played poorly in three consecutive matches and as a result, they have moved down to no. 5 in the points table. Leicester currently has 54 points in 32 matches.
But, Pearson thinks that the performance of his team will improve and the team will get promoted to the Premier League.
When asked about Leicester’s below par performance in the last three games, Pearson said, “Yes, we have lost a bit of form off late. We should have played a lot better in the last few games. But, I still have full faith in the abilities of the boys. They will turn it around in the upcoming games.”
“When we had started the season, our main goal was to get promoted to the Premier League and we are still on course to achieve that target. We are not out of it.”
“We have an uphill task in front of us, but, we can do it. There is plenty of football still to be played in the Championship. The next few games are very important for us. Hopefully, we would perform well and would move up in the points table.”
Leicester City will face Blackburn Rovers in its next match. That match will be played on Tuesday at The King Power Stadium.
