Pearson: Defeat to Millwall was "cruel" on ten-man Leicester

NIGEL Pearson described Leicester City's 1-0 loss to Millwall on Friday as "quite cruel" on his side, who played with ten men for most of the match.

Right-back Alan Dunne struck three minutes from time to clinch a crucial victory that saw the Lions reach the 50-point mark in the Championship and all-but secure safety from relegation.

Foxes captain Wes Morgan was sent-off for denying Andy Keogh a clear goalscoring opportunity in just the third minute, although Pearson had no complaints with the decision.

But he felt Leicester's efforts after the red card warranted a point – and was unhappy with what he described as "inconsistency" from referee Stuart Atwell.

"I could bemoan a number of things but we were pretty unfortunate," he said. "The players worked very hard to get something out of the game and to concede a goal so late is quite cruel.

"I don't think the players deserved that. Having said that, we didn't defend the goal at all well. You've got to do that for the entirety of the game and that is what's cost us.

"The players have shown a lot of desire to play in a positive fashion after going down to ten men so early on. It's a bit of a stumble but I can't have too much of a moan about that.

"If it had happened at the other end I'm sure we would think that it was worthy of a red card. It was at an unfortunate stage of the game and it was unintentional.

"There were lots of other events that went on during the game which were a bit inconsistent but I think it would be inappropriate to try to use those situations [as excuses]."

    Pearson conveniently forgets that if it wasn't for his goalkeeper Leicester could have been 3 or 4 goals down by half time. He can't see the WOOD for the trees. He needs a KANE taken to his backside.

    the money he's spent putting that lot together they ought to be able to handle us with eight. oh and he's probably moaning about the fact the ref should have sent trotter off, wished he had, we'd be better off without him, wouldn't miss him

    Well Luke that was from the heart. Have to say that the only thing cruel on Leicester was that they didn't manage to sign one of our players during half time. What makes it even better is that they have given us one of their best defenders in st ledger, this fella doesn't have a clue. Only one place for you Pearson and that's joining Appleton on the dole queue.

    Have to agree Luke, wood in my opinion really let us down, am I p***** off we didn't sign him, yes because he is a quality finisher and was honestly one of the best strikers I have seen at the den ever. He choose to go to a slightly above average championship team. I strongly believe that with him in our team we would be comfortably in the play off positions. Our only real problem is the lack of a goalscorer which the kinds of wood gave us. Hulse is s***, Marquis tries his best but does not really know how to put the ball away, Keogh has worked hard and when on form can put the ball away, Easter has potential bit then so did Jesus and look what happened to him on the Easter Monday, and as for Tyson??????? Seriously what the f*** is he doing here.

    Never mind No one likes us and I for one certainly don't care. I'm proud of what we achieve and we are going to Wembley for the 3rd time in 4 years.

    Kenny Jackett is the best manager we have ever had, simple.

    Think you've covered everything dragonfly
    I can't add anything to that I agree 100% pal.
    F*** him. He ain't scored for ages either nor has kane. I'm more p***** at the fact when we had our bad run we dropped like flies they've won one in ten and are still one point off the play offs and that t***** has the cheek to moan. As you say, never mind. Miiiiiiiiiiiilllllll

    Pearson If that wasn't on the tele Keogh would of been booked for diving, it's the only time we have had fair officials on televised games, we get f..ked every week home and away season after season which to me sounds like something fishy going on with the officials don't you think, so Pearson wipe your eyes and get on with loosing a couple more so we can watch your departure.0.1 COYL

    Yep, Wood did well with us partially because he is a talented footballer and but largely because we had a manager that knew how to put a team out that would help him play. Forgot he is only 20 years old and thought he could perform at that level anywhere......may be regretting that decision already.

      He is performing at that level he has scored 11 since joining Leicester.
      We still haven't got a player who has scored 11 all season
