Leicester boss Nigel Pearson believes his current squad boasts plenty of top-flight potential as the Foxes look to take another giant stride back towards the Barclays Premier League on Friday night.

Pearson said: "We have some quality at this level and I believe a lot of our players are capable of making the step up when we achieve that.

"It is all right having good players but they have to be the right sort. They have to have the same goals and when things get tough, they have to be prepared to keep those values going.

"You can't build a team overnight. It has taken time to build a squad of players good enough."
