Blackpool and Leicester City are deadlocked after 45 minutes in their Championship clash at Bloomfield Road this afternoon.

Blackpool manager Paul Ince's search for a first win in charge at Bloomfield Road has been met by stubborn resistance from Leicester City this afternoon.

Both sides attacked in search of the opening goal early on but it was Leicester who went closest through loan signing Harry Kane.

The young forward hit a fine volley from range but was denied by a last-ditch save from Blackpool keeper Matt Gilks.

Blackpool twice created openings when Gary Taylor-Fletcher went within inches of meeting successive crosses from Matt Phillips.

Leicester enjoyed a concerted spell of pressure before the break but were unable to stop the first half ending goalless.
