Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson admits that he's annoyed by the manner of his side's FA Cup defeat to Huddersfield Town.

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has revealed that he was frustrated by the team's inability to convert chances in their 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town.

The Foxes crashed out of the FA Cup as goals from Adam Clayton and Sean Scannell booked the Terriers place in the fifth round of the competition.

Pearson told reporters: "There were some good passages of play and there was a good work ethic but we were let down, because the quality in both boxes was not what it has been.

"We are disappointed to be out of the FA Cup but I have got a lot of faith in this group of players."

Leicester will now turn their focus on the Championship when they host Blackburn on Saturday.
