Huddersfield v Leicester reaction
Leicester boss Nigel Pearson is eager to protect Anthony Knockaert's prodigious talent after his brace decided a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield.
France Under-21 midfielder Knockaert fired two spectacular goals at the John Smith's Stadium to both seal a fourth straight win and lift the Foxes into second place in the Championship.
Pearson said: "He is a talent but it's important we don't put too much expectation on him.
"We can't afford to build him up to knock him down."
Knockaert hit a wind-assisted stunner from 35 yards on the half-hour mark to leave Town goalkeeper Alex Smithies rooted to the spot.
The 20-year-old was a £2.6 million summer signing from Guingamp and proved to be a handful down the right wing throughout Tuesday night's game.
He completed his double on the hour when he produced a brilliant acrobatic finish from Paul Konchesky's cross, Smithies getting a hand to the ball but failing to keep it out.
Knockaert had, though, showed signs of a bad temper as he was booked for a rash challenge in between his goals.
Pearson said: "The two goals were great. He certainly let fly for the first one. He had the breeze behind him but it was a fantastic strike.
"The second one was superb improvisation but you need ability to do that. He is certainly a potential match winner for us but he is still a young player.
"He has shown there is a bit of an edge to him as well and we have to help him control that."
Pearson hailed his head of recruitment, Steve Walsh, for finding Knockaert, saying: "He has done a lot of good work over the years and takes the credit for finding players like Anthony.
"You don't throw a net out and see what comes in, it takes a lot of care. What we have spent shows we get value for money."
Pearson hit back at his early-season critics and said: "There's been some rubbish written about certain aspects of our season so far but the best way to answer that is to keep getting results. We are a tight group."
Terriers boss Simon Grayson could not hide his admiration for Knockaert despite overseeing his side's second successive defeat.
"The lad will never score two better goals in his life," said Grayson.
"I thought he had entered the Olympic diving competition when he went down at one point and rolled 20 times in the corner but he is a fantastic talent."
Grayson said his players were "shell-shocked" after their latest reverse and added: "We have had a reality check in the last two games.
"We lost against Watford on Saturday and I thought this was a great opportunity to get that out of our system.
"We were beaten by the better side but, more than that, we didn't perform to our capabilities.
"We didn't get in their faces, pressurise them or tackle and a few choice words were said at half-time.
"I give credit to Leicester but there are ways of losing football matches and we just didn't do the things that got us where we were in the last six or seven games."
