Nigel Pearson: 'We lacked desire, energy and drive'

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson feels that his side did not do enough to get the job done against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Nigel Pearson has claimed that Leicester City lacked the "desire, energy levels or the drive" needed to beat Brighton & Hove Albion today.

The Foxes were defeated 3-1 by the Seagulls and were 2-0 down at half time.

Despite pulling a goal back through Andy King, Leicester conceded a third with 13 minutes remaining and were unable to find a way back into the game.

"I didn't think we showed the desire, the energy levels or the drive to go out and do the job," Pearson told the club's official website.

"People will say we were complacent and I can't argue with that. We were poor in the first half and we gave two poor goals away. They were avoidable."

Leicester are now third in the Championship, one point behind leaders Burnley.
