NIGEL Pearson believes Wanderers are now a tougher prospect than the one hit for five at the King Power Stadium in December.

Leicester edged an eight-goal thriller in the final game of 2013, after which Dougie Freedman predicted they would win the Championship title by a streak.

The Foxes are close to doing so having won promotion – but Pearson, pictured, has warned his team they cannot afford to let-up at the Reebok.

“They have tightened up quite a bit,” he said. “They have got some good players – it’s no surprise to me that they’ve managed to get a positive run together.

“They go into the game with a comfortable league position but knowing Dougie, he will want to finish the season well.”
