Rumours: Juventus keen on Man United duo

Leicester clinched the Sky Bet Championship title at the Reebok Stadium with Lloyd Dyer coming off the bench to net a fabulous winner in a 1-0 victory over Bolton.

The Foxes, who have maintained their position at the division's summit since before Christmas, were promoted earlier this month and, despite a heavy loss to Brighton, they immediately set their sights on securing silverware.

Foxes ready for Premier League - Pearson

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.

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.

– Leicester boss Nigel Pearson


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
