Preston   1 - 1   Leicester

Preston 1-1 Leicester

Preston 1-1 Leicester

A last-gasp equaliser from Iain Hume saw bottom side Preston claim a vital point against Leicester at Deepdale.

Leicester's on-loan striker Ayegbeni Yakubu broke the deadlock after a goalless first-half, scoring with a powerful strike into the bottom corner.

Hume levelled late on, however, latching on to a Paul Hayes flick-on before firing past keeper Chris Weale.

Andy King almost hit the winner moments later but was denied by Preston keeper Andy Lonergan.

Leicester had made the best of the early running, Lloyd Dyer narrowly missing the target and Paul Gallagher hitting the post from a free-kick from just outside the area.

It was a let-off for the home side and they almost took advantage, but Darren Carter's 20-yard strike went inches wide and Hume and Billy Jones were kept out by blocks from Jack Hobbs and Kyle Naughton.

Gallagher was once again denied by the woodwork at the re-start when he headed against the bar from Naughton's cute cross.

At the other end, Hume forced a fine save from Foxes goalkeeper Weale with a strike from 12 yards.

Yakubu, making his debut after a loan move from Premier League side Everton, finally broke the deadlock on the hour.

The 28-year-old collected Gallagher's cross and shifted the ball onto his favoured right foot before beating Lonergan at his near post.

On-loan striker Nathan Ellington replaced Carter immediately after and Hayes just missed latching on to his ball across the face of goal, while at the other end, Naughton spurned the chance to wrap up the win when he poked wide.

He was made to regret his miss when Hayes' flick-on from Lonergan's goal-kick found Hume, whose first-time shot beat Weale in stoppage time.
