Plymouth   1 - 1   Leicester

Plymouth v Leicester

Plymouth 1-1 Leicester

Leicester extended their unbeaten run to six games with a point at struggling Plymouth, but it could have been more.

The Foxes went ahead on 31 minutes when Kari Arnason failed to see keeper David Stockdale come off his line and poked the ball in for a disastrous own goal.

The Pilgrims levelled seven minutes later though when Craig Noone headed in from Chris Clark's cross.

Leicester had several chances to snatch the win, not least when Bruno Berner headed wide from a yard out.


Plymouth Argyle head coach Paul Mariner:
"We have gone three games on the bounce where we have gone a goal down and come back to get something.

"Leicester gave us a couple of scares but I thought we were on the front foot for most of the game and staged a grandstand finish, hitting the bar and having one just the wrong side of the post and another cleared off the line.

"We gave away a poor goal. I don't really want to dwell on that but I think it's the response that we have to talk about and some sparkling performances by the players."

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson:
"It's a hard-earned point. Fair play to Plymouth because they are fighting for their lives and put us under a lot of pressure in the second half.

"The pitch is a bit of a leveller. I think we created more chances than them and tried very hard to play on it - but it's difficult.

"Having said that I thought we played some pretty good stuff at times but they work tremendously hard and put you under pressure and what pleased me towards the end of the game was we showed a lot of resilience."
