Nigel Pearson celebrated Leicester's return to the top of League One but admitted he would have been happier with a goal glut.

City created plenty of chances on the night but had to rely on Lloyd Dyer's 25th-minute strike to see off lowly Yeovil 1-0.

Pearson said: "We're top of the league and that is where we want to be but I don't think the scoreline reflects our performance.

"If it had been three, four or five goals no-one could have had any complaints, but it was a frustrating night in front of goal.

"I was pleased with my players, they performed very well.

"Steve Howard did everything but score and the back four did pretty well too."

Yeovil manager Russell Slade refused to be downbeat despite seeing his side's five-match unbeaten run come to an end.

Slade said: "The important thing was to come here and be competitive and that's what we were.

"Although this is our first loss in five I don't see it as a blip because there is a resilience there and we can still go on from strength to strength."
