Jeffrey Schlupp (r) believes Leicester should take plenty of positives from their narrow defeat at QPR on Saturday and has backed manager Nigel Pearson to turn their fortunes around.

The Foxes fell to the foot of the Premier League table after losing 3-2 at Loftus Road in one of the division's most entertaining matches in recent history.

Between them the two sides mustered 51 attempts in the contest, with the visitors taking the lead as Esteban Cambiasso ended their near nine-hour wait for a goal.

QPR fought back and were ahead at the break courtesy of a Wes Morgan own goal and a first strike for the club for summer signing Leroy Fer.

Still more drama came in the second half as Schlupp drew Leicester level with a sublime finish before a fifth goal in as many games from R's striker Charlie Austin sealed the win for Harry Redknapp's side.

That lifted Rangers off the bottom, with Leicester taking their place, but Schlupp feels they got a lot of things right on the day.

"The boys are gutted to come away with no points after scoring two goals away from home," he said. "There are lots of positives from the game, we created lots of chances and hopefully in the future we can convert those chances and turn them into goals."
