Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson full of praise for his top guns
Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson was full of praise for his side as they sit proudly on top of the Championship table.
The delighted manager hailed his team's performance in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Birmingham as "great."
Substitute Ben Marshall struck a late equaliser to earn his team a well-deserved point.
That point was enough to take City top of the table on goal difference as leaders Cardiff were beaten by Nottingham Forest.

Pearson said a draw was the least his side deserved for what he called "a dominant performance".
"I thought we played exceptionally well again and sometimes things don't quite go your way," he said.
"What I will say is that, although on the balance of it people may argue it is two points dropped, for me we earned a really important point.
"We kept on going and showed a spirit and togetherness that I know has been there all season. That will stand us in good stead.
"We totally bossed the game. I can't remember Kasper Schmeichel having anything to do apart from playing as a sweeper.
"We defended well as a team and totally dominated possession. I am disappointed that the officials allowed the tempo of the game to be disrupted in a way which suited Birmingham, but you can't have it all your own way.
"Our players kept their concentration and were professional.
"We should have had three points but we haven't drawn a game for God knows how long, so a positive is that we haven't lost."
City were denied a couple of strong penalty claims in the first half as they looked to hammer home their territorial advantage. But neither a challenge on Lloyd Dyer inside the penalty area or a handball by James Hurst were given.
"The one on Lloyd Dyer is laughable," said Pearson.
"The second one, I have seen them given. It certainly hit his hand but he didn't know a lot about it.
"I think it is important that the officials try to get the decisions right. I think it is another example of where technology would certainly help."
