A maiden career hat-trick from David Nugent was enough to secure the points for the Foxes at King Power Stadium, which is quickly becoming a fortress for Pearson’s men following four wins out of four in the league.
But their lack of points on the road is an itch Pearson is eager to scratch as he begins to plan for next Saturday’s trip to Middlesbrough.
“It was a deserved win today. We were the better side in both halves,” he said.
“We dominated the second half territorially and I thought we looked dangerous so it was a good win.
“We clearly need to get our away form going but, in its entirety, it’s 12 points from seven games after a difficult start. We could have had a few more points, but our performances in general have been very good.
“Away from home, we’ve been unfortunate or careless and we need to rectify that now.”
Nugent’s goals took his tally to four in two games following his strike against Burnley in midweek, which ended a run of 11 games without a goal.
And while Pearson was more interested in the team’s performance than handing out individual accolades, he said Nugent’s recent good form was a case of hard work paying off.
“Forwards thrive on confidence, but both Nugent and (Jamie) Vardy have worked exceptionally hard for the team,” Pearson said.
“He’s got his rewards today so I’m pleased for him but, more importantly, I’m pleased for the team.
“Whether he gets three goals or not is irrelevant, it’s about the team winning and we got the result we deserved today.”
