Delighted Leicester manager Nigel Pearson was full of praise for his players after a 1-0 win against Middlesbrough took them into second place in the npower Championship table.
A 70th-minute goal from David Nugent gave City their fourth league win in a row and sent Middlesbrough to a third consecutive defeat. Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel added to their misery by saving a penalty from Marvin Emnes in stoppage time.
"It is a good feeling to be second in the table and I thought the players applied themselves really well," said Pearson. "We had a sneaky feeling that Middlesbrough would play the way they did with two wide players and no central strikers."
