Pearson has no complaints

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson was disappointed with the 2-1 loss his side endured on his return to the KC Stadium on Saturday, but had no complaints with the outcome.

Leicester took on Hull City, the club Pearson left to re-join Leicester just three weeks ago and a first half red card for Leicester captain Matt Mills carved the way for Hull to make it a miserable return for their old manager.

Hull's Robert Koren settled the tie in the 88th minute with a brilliant right footed strike from the edge of the box that left the impressive Kasper Schmeichel with no chance in the visiting goal.

"I am not going to hide behind the fact we had 10 men. We are still accountable for the result. I wouldn't dream of using it as an excuse,” said Pearson. "It is cruel on the players because they had worked so hard, but that is football. I thought they played well but you have to see these games out – you have to have a 95 minute mentality."

Leicester host Peterborough United on Saturday at the King Power Stadium and Pearson will be hoping his side bounces back after losing for the first time since his return to the club.
