Pearson disappointed by below-par Foxes
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson acknowledged that the Foxes had been well beaten in their final home match of the season against West Ham.
The third-placed Hammers kept their automatic promotion hopes alive by coming from a goal down to win 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.
Pearson felt injuries hampered his side's chances during the game as captain Richie Wellens limped off after 22 minutes and fellow midfielder Andy King failed to re-emerge for the second half.
"It is a disappointing way to round off the home campaign," said Pearson. "Their clinical finishing was the difference but in the end they had too much for us and I have no complaints.
"Richie Wellens will have a scan on Tuesday. It doesn't look promising at the moment. And likewise with Andy King, who has a foot injury that is maybe similar to his original injury but hopefully isn't as bad. They are things we could do without at this stage of the season, certainly with our numbers being short in midfield.
"We didn't have the creativity in the middle of the park that we would have liked and I think that - along with the injuries - didn't help us. It also affected what we could do to try to get back into the game."
