Now we've got to do this away from home, admits Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson
Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson wants to see his side take their home form into their travels after completing back-to-back wins at the King Power Stadium.
City made it four victories from as many home starts yesterday when they completed a 3-1 success against a strong Hull side, following up the 2-1 midweek win over Burnley.
"Clearly we need to get our away form going," said the City boss after yesterday's win.
"When you look at it, we have 12 points from seven games. We could easily be three or four points better off.

"Our performances in general have been very, very good, but in our away games we have been a bit unfortunate or careless and we need to try to rectify that."
There was nothing unfortunate or careless about yesterday's performance, in which there were a number of outstanding performances throughout the City side, with David Nugent firing a hat-trick and Anthony Knockaert again showed his qualities.
Pearson said Nugent's treble was reward for the sheer hard work the striker has put in for the City cause.
"Our forwards have worked exceptionally hard and David Nugent and Jamie Vardy worked hard for the team," said Pearson.
"We have created lots of goal-scoring chances in most of the games we have played home and away. It is about the team winning and I think we got the result we deserved (against Hull).
"All strikers get frustrated when they are not scoring and would much rather be tapping the ball in than making 25 to 30-yard covering runs. They recognise, though, that they have to work in both directions.
"Our forwards have worked very hard this season and David got his rewards. I'm pleased for him but more importantly pleased with the team."
Knockaert has caught the eye in recent matches and yesterday was no different as Hull struggled to contain him.
"He is learning how to play in England," said Pearson. "He has an awful lot of talent, we know that.
"Anthony is a real talent and a likeable lad.
"Hopefully, we will be seeing a lot more of him."
