Leicester manager Nigel Pearson warned his players they still have work to do to secure a top-six finish, despite a crushing 4-1 win over Watford.

The Foxes are four points clear inside the play-off places with two games to play after an inspired display against the relegation-haunted Hornets.

Pearson said: "We're not quite there yet, but we're in a decent position. We've worked hard to be in this good position and now we've got to make sure we see that through."

Leicester played the second half with 10 men following Steve Howard's reckless challenge in first-half stoppage time, although by then they were already 2-0 up thanks to a Martyn Waghorn penalty and Paul Gallagher's strike.

Jay Spearing and substitute James Vaughan made the game safe after the interval before Martin Taylor grabbed a late consolation for Watford.
