Bristol City   2 - 0   Leicester

Bristol City 2-0 Leicester

Bristol City 2-0 Leicester

David James saved a penalty to help Bristol City move out of the relegation zone after a victory over Leicester.

The 40-year-old former England goalkeeper hauled down Andy King but redeemed himself by saving Steve Howard's spot-kick with his legs.

Leicester were made to pay when Brett Pitman stabbed home his first goal for Bristol City to open the scoring.

David Clarkson sealed the three points in the last minute with a stunning 30-yard drive into the top corner.

Sven-Goran Eriksson's Leicester side came into the game on the back of a four-game unbeaten run and started the better of the two teams.

Just five minutes after Howard's penalty miss, Paul Gallagher rose highest inside the box but his header crept just inches wide of the far post with James well beaten.

Bristol City were a different side after the break after swapping Lee Johnson for Pitman in what turned out to be an inspired move.

In the 57th minute, a Jamie McAllister cross was prodded goalwards by Pitman and, despite the best efforts of Foxes defender Ritchie Wellens, the ball crept over the line.

Eriksson threw on strikers Martyn Waghorn and Matt Fryatt as he attempted to get his side back into the game following Pitman's goal.

But despite a few nervy moments late on, the Robins never really looked like conceding and snatched a spectacular late second through substitute Clarkson.
