'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Manager's Reactions

Ian Holloway and Nigel Pearson have offered their thoughts on Saturday's game, that saw Pearson's Leicester side beat Holloway's Blackpool 2-1.

Holloway is evidently concerned at his side's recent run judging from his post-match comments. Indeed, despite the furore surrounding the Seasiders being denied a last minute penalty and the booking of Charlie Adam, Ollie refused to blame the officials for another home defeat.

'We looked a nice pretty team but we lost,' said Holloway.

'The message that's going round the division is that if you get solid, you keep your shape against Blackpool, you might have a chance of beating them.

'I don't like playing at home at the moment.

'I don't like some of the decisions that are going against us at home but the results aren't down to the officials, it's our fault.'

Meanwhile, Foxes boss Nigel Pearson was quite complimentary about the Seasiders... well, until it came to their defending!

'I thought both sides tried to win the game and both played 4-3-3,' said Pearson.

'I think Blackpool will be scratching their heads as to how they've not got something out of this game.

'If they could defend like they attack they would be top of the league.'
