Leonardo Ulloa, Leicester City's top scorer, can handle the growing expectations on him says manager Nigel Pearson.

The five-goal striker has had an impressive start in the Premier League with goals against Manchester United and Arsenal.

The Argentinian is joint fifth in the scoring charts but Pearson strongly believes his outlook on the game hasn't changed.

Today, Leicester City play Swansea away at the Liberty Stadium kicking off at 5.30pm.

Leo has settled in very well and has had an outstanding start in terms of goal return. His all-round play has been excellent.

He certainly hasn't had any extra pressure put on him from within. My view on strikers is goals are what they are but the way we play we need forward thinking players who also understand how the team functions.

– Manager, Nigel Pearson

Racing will be subject to approval by the Motosport Industry Association (MIA).

Sponsored by Halfords, racers competed around a street circuit in Birmingham city centre from 1986 to 1990.

"We are so excited to announce competitive motor sport on the Coventry Ring Road.

With Coventry's rich motoring heritage and history, it feels like the right fit to be racing in Coventry and we can't wait to make it happen."

– James Noble, Motofest Festival Director

"I'm really delighted that we will see some competitive time trials on our iconic Ring Road as part of Motofest next year.

We have a rich motoring history and I don't believe there is a more appropriate city to host an event like this. Our city centre was transformed into a showcase celebration of the city's rich motoring history but this event also provides a glimpse into our automotive future."

– Cllr Abdul Khan, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure, Sports, Parks and Events
