Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson was delighted to see his side earn all three points against Swansea City this weekend, as it took their run of league wins to three in consecutive weeks, and the City boss believes the victory keeps the Foxes survival hopes alive, reports Sky Sports.
Leicester’s victory against Swansea City was their third consecutive Premier League win, and lifted them from the foot on the table for the first time in five months. The Foxes were certainly good value for the win, but manager Nigel Pearson doesn’t want his side resting on their laurels now their future is in their own hands.
The Foxes manager knows they still have plenty of work to do before they can suggest they’re already safe in the Premier League, and given how difficult they have found this season since their promotion from the Championship, Pearson isn’t getting carried away.
He knows the win against Swansea puts Leicester in great shape to stay, and is pleased that his players have hit some form at the perfect time of the campaign to end the season strongly in their fight for survival.
Pearson was quoted as saying: It is never easy to achieve three wins in a row for a club in our sort of position. It is what we need at this stage of the season. I am pleased for the players today. They have really committed to the season, and I can bemoan our luck at times, but we have kept our season alive. Winning games certainly helps that.”
