Pearson's Reaction After Losing To Swansea City

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson could still find positives from his side despite them being unable to get 3 wins in 3 against Swansea City.

Paulo Sousa's side got revenge this afternoon after losing twice to the Foxes at the Walkers Stadium. Gorka Pintado got the all-important winning goal after 32 minutes thanks to good build up play from Darren Pratley and Nathan Dyer.

Pearson told their Official Site:

'I thought the players worked tremendously hard through out the game, even in the first half when they passed it particularly well but when you win the ball back you have to pass it better than we did. Our problem in the first half was that we couldn't retain possession well enough but that is credit to them as well.

'In the second half we made life more difficult for them and I think we actually caused them a few more problems but it was a game of very few chances. They had one shot on target all day and scored and that is a reflection of the game, We didn't show enough quality at key times.'

'We have always got a strong bench so whoever is on the bench I am confident they can make an impact. They did okay but we didn't force an equaliser so it is still disappointing.

'We are still well placed, we have come a long way and I know that over the course of the season we will play well and on other days we won't play well so I have to have a balanced view. It is a tight league and we were always in the game today.'

First half we dominated, second half they did. I noticed that we missed a little bit of creativity in the midfield 2day. I think we may have missed Orlandi!
