NZ ace Wood backs Leicester boss Pearson

Chris Wood is confident that Leicester City have the right manager in Nigel Pearson.

The Foxes currently sit seventh on the Championship table and the New Zealand striker believes Pearson has what it takes to lead the club into a promotion playoff position.

"He's a great manager," said the former West Bromwich Albion attacker.

"He does the business. We just need to make sure we do the business.

"He gets his teams set up right and gets everything prepared well. We just have to go out there and execute it because Nigel gives us all the tools to do it."

Leicester have drawn three and won one of their past four outings to find themselves one point behind sixth-placed Bolton who are currently in the playoff spots.
