Leicester boss Nigel Pearson was pleased to see David Nugent end his drought as his goal fired Leicester to a 1-0 play-off semi-final first leg over Watford.
Nugent headed home Anthony Knockaert's free-kick in the 82nd minute to end a 16-game goal drought and put the Foxes in the box seat ahead of Sunday's second leg.
It was the Leicester leading scorer's 15th goal of the season, having been stuck on 14 since scoring the winner in a 2-1 home win over Wolves on January 31.
Foxes boss Nigel Pearson was pleased to see the striker break his duck but insists the recent lack of goals has not affected the player or the team.
"Strikers thrive on goals and hopefully it will give him that extra confidence," said Pearson.
"Not that he's been lacking confidence, really. He always gives you enthusiasm and work rate and affects the game.
"Normally when he gets one goal he gets a few. It has been a while but with him around he's always capable of scoring.
"I'm pleased for him but more importantly he's got us a narrow lead."
