Praise for players and staff after Leicester City's Nigel Pearson wins Manager of Month award
Nigel Pearson has praised his Leicester City players and backroom staff after picking up the Championship Manager of the Month award for January.
The City boss beat Burnley's Sean Dyche and Brighton's Gus Poyet to the division's first monthly accolade of 2013, after guiding City to four wins in four Championship games since the turn of the year.
Pearson's side had a perfect record in January, a month which saw them hit 13 goals in victories over Huddersfield Town, Bristol City, Middlesbrough and Wolves, while firmly establishing themselves in the race for automatic promotion.
"It was a terrific effort from the entire group over the course of the month," Pearson said.

"The players and all the support staff have an outstanding work ethic and have applied themselves superbly all season. When you see that reflected in results, it is extremely rewarding for everyone.
"Our form during January helped put us into a good position to achieve our overall objective this season and it's important that we now build on that during the coming games."
