Leicester City in waiting game over David Nugent's injury
Leicester City were yesterday waiting to discover the extent of top-scorer David Nugent's neck injury.
Nugent, who scored his seventh goal of the season in the 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest, had to be substituted in the second half.
He is still suffering with a severely stiff neck.
City will wait to see if the injury settles down before Saturday's visit of Ipswich to King Power Stadium.
"We have to see how he is over the next few days," said manager Nigel Pearson.
"We don't know the extent of it. It was a shame because he and Martyn Waghorn were a handful against Forest.
"It would be a shame to lose him because he has been playing very well."
Meanwhile, it appeared yesterday that Pearson had escaped any action from the FA over his comments about the officials after the 2-2 draw.
Pearson was heavily critical of referee Anthony Taylor and his assistants after Forest were given a controversial penalty.
The City boss said he would move on after the disappointment of losing two points from a game City had under control.
Midfielder Richie Wellens has returned from his loan at Ipswich, but new boss Mick McCarthy has not given up getting Wellens for a second loan spell.
"It's up in the air at the moment," said McCarthy.
