Adams hails battling display
Micky Adams
Leicester manager Micky Adams could not hide his delight as his side earned a gritty 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday at the Walkers Stadium.

The Foxes stretched their unbeaten run to five games thanks to an injury-time strike from former Blackburn Rovers striker Craig Hignett.

"It's a welcome point against a team that no-one expected us to get a point against," said Adams.

"We never give up and the fans can be proud of their team."

Adams refused to take anything away from his team and would not comment on whether Ashley Cole's dismissal in the 73rd-minute helped their cause.

I did deserve to be sent off and I have apologised to my team-mates and the boss
Ashley Cole
The England left-back was shown a straight red for a rash two-footed challenge on Leicester defender Ben Thatcher.

"I don't want to talk about Arsenal players as my players were magnificent," Adams said.

"Shall I do an Arsene Wenger and say I didn't see it?

"The players were unhappy about the tackle though, so that must tell you something about it."
