Nigel Pearson praises Anthony Knockaert after he scores a brace against Huddersfield Town to fire the Foxes to second in the Championship.

Nigel Pearson has praised a match-winning performance from Anthony Knockaert against Huddersfield Town.

Leicester City moved up to second in the Championship with a 2-0 win over Huddersfield, with the French youth international scoring both goals for the Foxes.

Pearson told Sky Sports News that while he was delighted with Knockaert's performance, he wants to keep expectations to a minimum to allow his young talent to perform.

The Foxes boss said: "He is a talent but it's important we don't put too much expectation on him.

"The two goals were great. He certainly let fly for the first one. He had the breeze behind him but it was a fantastic strike.

"He is certainly a potential match winner for us but he is still a young player. He has shown there is a bit of an edge to him as well and we have to help him control that."

Leicester continue their Championship campaign with a home match against Bristol City on Saturday.
