Leicester   1 - 1   Peterborough

Leicester v Peterborough

Leicester 1-1 Peterborough

Penalties either side of half-time left Leicester and Peterborough with a share of the spoils in an entertaining game.

The lively Aaron Mclean was tripped by Leicester's Wayne Brown and George Boyd fired Posh ahead from the spot.

Leicester pushed hard after going behind and Matty Fryatt should have scored but missed when through on goal.

They eventually drew level through Fryatt's spot-kick after Tom Williams was adjudged to have blocked with his hand from a Robbie Neilson effort.

Both sides were promoted from League One last season and whilst Leicester have settled back into life in the Championship well, Peterborough have now equalled a club record for the most games without a win at the start of a season.

They had their chances to win the match, notably from a Craig Mackail-Smith 20-yard volley that flew wide late on.

Equally though, they could have lost the game as keeper Joe Lewis twice saved well from Foxes' substitute Paul Gallagher in the closing seconds of the first half and Steve Howard had a header cleared off the line for the home side.


Leicester manager Nigel Pearson:

"At the break we were relieved to be 1-0 down as they played very well so we needed to regroup.

"We changed our shape to get back in the game and we passed it much better.

"Their goalkeeper was a lot busier than ours at the end but I can't begrudge them something from the game. It was a fair result."

Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson:

"We dominated the first half and we should have been further than one up. In fact the game should have been over.

"You have to score from opportunities like that and it cost us.

"There's only so many times you can say we played well without winning and it's time for us to play poor and win 1-0."
