While the Foxes go in search of a fourth straight win on home turf, Steve Bruce’s Tigers will be aiming for a fourth overall to strengthen their position as one of the npower Championship’s early front-runners.
And Pearson expects the form of both sides to contribute to an exciting encounter.
“We’re going to have to work very hard against a side that have started the season exceptionally well,” Pearson said ahead of the game.
“I think it should be a good game for both sides; they’re in form, we’ve won our three home games so far and we need to maintain that.”
Scoring goals freely despite the absence of some key personnel, the Tigers’ impressive start to the season continued on Tuesday night with a 3-2 win at Leeds United.
“They’ve had a very good start, scoring goals quite freely and we have to be aware of their strengths,” Pearson said of the club he managed between 2010 and 2011.
“But I think they will know that, even in the games where we have been beaten, we have performed well.
“I’m sure they’ll have a healthy respect for us, but we’ve got to make sure we perform at a level that gives us a chance of winning the game.
“I’m looking at it from our perspective and it’s a chance for us to get back-to-back wins.”
