Foxes beat Palace on Pearson return

Published Add your comment

Two fabulous strikes from Paul Gallacher ensured Nigel Pearson's second stint at Leicester got off to the perfect start as his side recorded a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Pearson left Hull earlier this week to retake the reins at the King Power Stadium and replace Sven-Goran Eriksson - less than 18 months after he walked away to manage the Tigers.

The Foxes enjoyed immense success under Pearson first time around and Jermaine Beckford's opener set them on their way to a resounding victory. After a goalless first half in which the striker spurned the best opportunities, Beckford opened the scoring with a cool finish.
