Leicester manager Nigel Pearson admits his side must improve at Derby on Saturday after their play-off bid was harmed by a late Reading winner at the Walkers Stadium.

Gylfi Sigurdsson gave the in-form Royals a 2-1 win with a stoppage-time penalty which leaves the Foxes in fourth place in the Coca-Cola Championship table.

"It's disappointing and I don't think we deserved to lose," Pearson said.

"Over the last two home games we'd obviously expect to get a better return than we have and we need a response now on Saturday. But we've done exceptionally well of late so let's not get carried away."

"We had our opportunities in the second half and it is unfortunate we have come away with nothing. We made their goalkeeper work. I'm not going to start moaning, we are in a good position and we need to make sure that we finish as well as possible."
