Preston 1-1 Leicester
DJ Campbell struck in the second half to earn managerless Leicester a precious point at struggling Preston.

North End took a deserved lead when Andy Carroll headed in Kevin Nicholls's inswinging free-kick after 14 minutes.

But Leicester improved after the interval and drew level after some great play by Matt Fryatt.

Fryatt weaved his way past a couple of challenges on the edge of the box and his cross was nodded in by fellow striker Campbell.

  • Preston manager Paul Simpson on goalscorer Andy Carroll:
    "I decided to recall him and I just felt he would give us something different.

    "He's had a difficult time and I've been hammering him every single day in training.

    "I've got him to take a hard look at himself because he's made a few mistakes."

  • Leicester caretaker manager Frank Burrows:
    "The supporters are used to better and want to get back to the Premier League and we are all aware of that," he said.

    "The management situation's down to the chairman. Whoever gets the job will be expected to move onwards and upwards. "I'm enjoying it and I still get a buzz out of it. There things not to like about it but it's a disease and I am afflicted with it."
