Pearce still in Forest talks

Stuart Pearce has confirmed he is still talking with Nottingham Forest about becoming the club's new manager.

I'm still chatting with Nottingham Forest.

That will continue. That's the best I can say at the moment.

Forest have always been well supported whatever league they've been in, there's a rich history there.

It's a great club and one that's very close to my heart.

Brighton fight back

Dale Stephens scored his first Brighton goal to rescue a point in an entertaining 3-3 draw against Blackburn at Ewood Park.

Both sides were looking to strengthen their play-off hopes and David Rodriguez helped Albion draw first blood with a low finish for his first goal in Brighton colours.

Rovers rallied and Jordan Rhodes diverted a Tom Cairney free-kick home from close range before Cairney got on the scoresheet just before half-time from close range.

But Brighton fought admirably and Gordon Greer's first of the season drew them level after 78 minutes before a breathtaking final few minutes that saw Rhodes score Blackburn's third from the penalty spot before Stephens headed in soon afterwards.

Pearson doesn't care how Leicester earn promotion

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson is not fussed when his side earn promotion to the Premier League as long as they do it after Dean Hammond's header earned the leaders a 2-2 draw at Wigan.

I'm not taking anything for granted. We are still on track if we do it at home we do it at home, if we do it away from home we do it away from home, I'm not bothered as long as we do it.

It was another good night for us any positive result for us tonight would've put us in a slightly stronger position and that's what we've done.

You can see why they are on a good run because they played with much better intensity than when we played them at our place and they have good players but I thought we dealt with the set-backs well
