Leicester 0-0 Middlesbrough

Leicester 0-0 Middlesbrough

Leicester   0 - 0   Middlesbrough

Leicester and Middlesbrough got off the mark in the Championship after an entertaining stalemate.

DJ Campbell's shot was deflected narrowly over before Andy King rattled the bar and Steve Howard headed wide as the hosts dominated early on.

Boro responded and David Wheater nodded wide and Luke Williams shot off target.

After the break, Campbell went close with a diving header and Howard's curler was saved by Jason Steele, while Scott McDonald went close for Boro.

But a draw was hardly the result either side wanted as they attempted to kick-start their Championship campaigns.

Gordon Strachan's Boro have been heavily tipped to win promotion after a summer that has seen the manager invest heavily in new players, while the Foxes are hoping to once again challenge for at least a play-off place.
