Defeat leaves Pearson deflated
Leicester boss Nigel Pearson admitted his side's npower Championship play-off hopes suffered a "big blow" following their 2-1 defeat at Millwall.
The Lions trounced City at the King Power Stadium earlier in the season and were on course to complete the double after 23 minutes when Tottenham loanee Harry Kane struck home. Andy Keogh put Millwall further ahead 10 minutes into the second half although substitute Danny Drinkwater's effort ensuring a nervy ending but Leicester could not find the equaliser. And Pearson said: "It is a big blow [to our play-off ambitions]. "I have not actually had a look at all the other results yet, but I think we always had to try and win our last six games to have a realistic chance. "We needed to win them all probably, but we have got three games left still and we will be back to business on Tuesday. But it was a disappointing result for us because I think we started the game very well."
