Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has described yesterday's (1 December) 4-1 win at home against Derby County as "the best we've played".
Martyn Waghorn took centre stage as the hosts took a two-goal lead in the first half hour during the enthralling all East Midlands derby.
Derby halved their arrears through Theo Robinson, but David Nugent then came off the bench to score twice and secure a victory that lifts Leicester back up to third in the npower Championship.
Nugent, who had not been expected to feature this weekend, has now contributed four goals in less than an hour of action.
He was on target twice against Ipswich prior to being withdrawn due to a slipped disc in his neck and grabbed another double last night following his 66th-minute introduction.
Derby manager Nigel Clough said although the Rams' general performance was sufficient, their defending tactics were not. The club has now lost four away games in a row and five successive league meetings with Leicester.
