Nigel Pearson saluted the work ethic of David Nugent after the Leicester striker scored the first hat-trick of his career in the 3-1 npower Championship win over Hull at the King Power Stadium.

The victory, against Pearson's former club, maintained the Foxes 100% home record and lifted them to seventh in the table.

Pearson said: "It was good for Nugent to get the hat-trick and he proved you have just got to keep working hard when things are not going your way. Strikers thrive on confidence and we got the result we deserved."
