Coventry   1 - 1   Leicester

Coventry 1-1 Leicester

Coventry 1-1 Leicester

Andy King's clever lobbed finish gave Leicester a deserved draw at Coventry.

Aidy Boothroyd's side had taken the lead just before the break when Michael McIndoe crossed for Clive Platt to head down into the bottom corner.

Goalkeeper Keiren Westwood protected Coventry's lead as he saved from Martyn Waghorn and Lloyd Dyer after the break.

Waghorn then headed against the post, before King, capitalising on Coventry's uncertainty in defence, lofted the ball over the advancing Westwood.

The draw leaves Leicester second from bottom in the table and still without a win this season.

However Paulo Sousa's side looked impressive for long passages of play, but were held back only by their failure to take goalscoring opportunities.

McIndoe's introduction on 36 minutes for Gary McSheffrey reaped immediate reward for Coventry when he picked out Platt, who got the better of Jack Hobbs to put the home side ahead.

During the game Matty Fryatt, Waghorn and Dyer all had chances, before King secured Leicester a point.
