Sunderland 1-1 Leicester
Tobias Hysen came off the bench to earn Sunderland a point in boss Roy Keane's first home game in charge.

He struck in the 65th minute, seconds after coming on, sending a skidding shot off Leicester's Darren Kenton and past keeper Paul Henderson.

Matty Fryatt gave Leicester a shock lead after 48 minutes, with a composed finish after Liam Miller's mistake.

Hysen almost added a second in the 69th minute, but he directed the excellent Ross Wallace's cross wide.

  • Sunderland boss Roy Keane:
    "There were a lot of positives, but it is a good reality check for everybody at the football club, especially the players.

    "It was a tired performance and I take responsibility. I was tempted to freshen things up, and I should have.

    "But after going a goal down, the players responded well and showed the character I have spoken about."

  • Leicester boss Rob Kelly:
    "I am pleased with the performance, but we are actually a bit disappointed that we are going back with just a point.

    "We have got a very young team, an emerging team and for us to come and play in front of over 35,000 supporters in a high profile game, this is why you come into football, isn't it?

    "It was terrific for all our players, not just our young players."
