Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson urges caution
Leicester City are on the right road for promotion, manager Nigel Pearson said, but he warned there was still a long way to go.
City opened up a three-point gap in the automatic promotion places and closed the gap on leaders Cardiff City going into today's Championship fixtures following their victory over Wolves on Thursday, but Pearson is guarding against complacency.
City have a 100 per cent record in January after five consecutive league victories have rocketed them into the promotion places.
Manager Pearson, however, said there will be some tough times ahead, especially as City now face a potentially fixture backlog through February and March, with two games a week for four weeks.

"The January and February period is not always the easiest time and we have managed to start the new year well, but there is an awful long way to go and it remains very tight," said Pearson.
"I don't think it is prudent to make assumptions that we have cracked it.
"There is a long way to go and we will miss opportunities because of the scheduling and rescheduling of games.
"The Cardiff City fixture has been put back and we have a FA Cup replay to negotiate. The outcome of that will affect another league fixture.
"There are a few twists and turns yet that we have to deal with. The focus has to be on us concentrating on our own fixtures.
"You are only as good as your last result.
"Our thoughts are already now on the next fixture and trying to get the performance and, more importantly, the result right."
