Leicester boss Nigel Pearson insisted his side fully deserved their 1-0 win at Coca-Cola Championship rivals Doncaster.

Martyn Waghorn's seventh goal of the season was enough to take the points and extend their unbeaten run to seven games at a snowy Keepmoat Stadium.

"It was good to get a win in one of our games in hand. I thought we started very well," said Pearson.

"We were worth our win and it was a good win. I thought we were always comfortable and I am very pleased."

Doncaster assistant boss Richard O'Kelly believes Rovers deserved at least a point from their defeat.

He said: "I thought the effort we put in there was excellent and we probably dominated possession. Our passing and moving was good. I definitely feel we should have got something out of the game."

The home side were furious in the first half when Bruno Berner cynically brought down Billy Sharp, which denied the Rovers striker a run on goal.

Berner was booked for the incident and although most Rovers fans demanded a red, O'Kelly concedes that the referee got the decision right.

"It's intelligent defending. If we had done it at the other end we might not have been a goal down," O'Kelly said. "That's what the top teams have and what we need to learn at this level."
