Leicester boss Nigel Pearson praises his team's attitude following Friday night's 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the Championship.
Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has praised his side's attitude following Friday night's 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the Championship.
The Foxes hit the woodwork three times at the King Power Stadium before David Nugent bagged the winner with 20 minutes to play to move them up to second place in the table.
Boro had the chance to earn themselves a point late on, but Kasper Schmeichel saved Marvin Emnes's penalty.
"It is a good feeling to be second in the table and I thought the players applied themselves really well," Pearson told Sky Sports News.
"It was a good game all round and there were one or two tight decisions, and Kasper made a fine save at the end from the penalty."
Leicester return to FA Cup action next Saturday when they travel to Huddersfield Town in the fourth round.
