Leicester boss Nigel Pearson is delighted to have joint-leading scorer Matty Fryatt back in time to face Cardiff in the Championship play-offs.

Pearson will have the 12-goal striker available for the semi-final showdown after he made a surprise return as a substitute in the Foxes' final game of the season against Middlesbrough.

It was Fryatt's first appearance since fracturing his jaw against Doncaster in early February.

"It's great for us to see him back and I think when he got the injury we were obviously worried if he'd play again this season," said Pearson.

"But we spoke about getting him back for the play-offs if we got there - and we've got there. It just gives us another dimension."
