Pearson: Foxes to keep cool

Boss Nigel Pearson has urged Leicester to keep their cool and ignore their relegation rivals.

The Foxes host Swansea tomorrow just three points from safety in the Premier League after back-to-back wins. Last week's 3-2 win at West Brom handed them a survival lifeline, although they remain bottom of the table. But after their mini-revival, Pearson wants his side to remain focused on their own jobs. "I'm very wary of people flipping the emphasis," he said.

"Our future is in our own hands and if we go into the last game with that we have given ourselves a realistic chance. We need to make sure our own run-in is what we want it to be. It's helpful that other teams are being dragged into it.

"People are continually adjusting the form table and their predictions."
