Kasper backs Pearson in play-off push

Thu, 29 Mar 12:17:49 2012

Kasper Schmeichel insists that manager Nigel Pearson will not allow Leicester to become disheartened as they attempt to gatecrash the npower Championship play-offs.

Frustratingly for the Foxes, they appear unable to move within striking distance of the top six and missed another opportunity to do so on Tuesday night when they were held to a goalless home draw by struggling east midlands rivals Nottingham Forest.

Goalkeeper Schmeichel, captain against Forest, is adamant the players will not dwell on those two dropped points.

"We will keep pushing, we have got to. We have a great manager and he won't let us stop at all," said Schmeichel.

"We need to be as relentless as we can because if results keep going as they are going, and we can finally take advantage of it then why not? That is our attitude."
