Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson praises his players for coming from behind to seal a 3-2 win over Bolton Wanderers.

Nigel Pearson has said that Leicester City showed a "lot of courage" to come from a goal down to beat Bolton Wanderers 3-2 at the King Power Stadium this evening.

Goals from Chris Wood, Lloyd Dyer and Jeff Schlupp helped the Foxes to their first win in 10 Championship games.

The manager said via the club's Twitter account: "[We] showed a lot of courage after going behind so early. A lot riding on tonight, pleased with how we applied themselves.

"Unbelievably difficult spell with results, but players have worked hard to rectify it. Had to defend with commitment tonight.

"Fans must take credit for sticking with the players during a difficult run. We have three tough games but results in our hands."

The result has lifted Leicester back inside the playoff places.
