Leicester City boss wary of Burnley threat

This Is Lancashire: Nigel Pearson Nigel Pearson

LEICESTER City boss Nigel Pearson knows his side will have their work cut out if they are to take three points from Burnley in tomorrow’s televised clash.

It is a battle of two of the top three and Pearson believes Burnley’s work ethic is behind their strong start to the season.

Pearson said: “We are playing against a side at the weekend who have an exceptionally hard work rate.

“They have some really good players as well plus a manager who is driven and wants success. I think that reflects in what they have done so far. We have to be aware of that.

“I would also imagine that Sean is aware we have players who are very capable and for the most part they have worked exceptionally hard.”

Meanwhile, Pearson admits he may look to bring Sylvan Ebanks-Blake to the club.

Ebanks-Blake had been linked with Burnley and is a free agent following his release by Wolves in the summer.
