Leeds 0-2 Leicester
Leeds slumped to another damaging home defeat as Leicester clinched their fourth away win of the season.

Midfielder Lilian Nalis punished poor marking at a corner by slamming the Foxes into the lead from close range.

Leeds' misery was compounded when Gary Kelly headed through his own goal in attempting to clear.

David Healy had Leeds best chance early on with an opportunity to fire them ahead but his close-range header was saved by keeper Stuart Taylor.

  • Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell

    "If I am going to be critical it is that we did not kill them off when we should have done.

    "Our approach play was good and we had chances but when you do not take them you are always liable to get hit - and we were.

    "There was no hangover from Monday night's defeat against Rotherham. We have had two games this week and should have won both."

  • Leicester boss Craig Levein

    "To come to Leeds and win was a good performance and the players are thrilled with the way the game panned out.

    "I am not naive enough to believe we will necessarily carry that into our next game but I was pleased with the way the defenders dealt with Brian Deane.

    "You know you have a fight on your hands when you face someone like him."
