Sean St Ledger: Has missed last seven matches

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson has no intention of rushing Sean St Ledger back from his hamstring injury despite the defender's frustration.

The Republic of Ireland international centre-half has missed the last seven matches with the problem he sustained during the 2-0 home win over Bristol City on October 6.

However, Pearson insists he will not be rushing St Ledger back into action.

He said: "It has been a frustrating for him. When he has played this season he has done exceptionally well.

"It is one of those injuries that has taken a bit longer than both he and us thought. It is important that it is 100% before he comes back in.

"I wouldn't want him to come back and then break down. He is frustrated at the minute, but is still a very positive influence around the place."
