Result: Leicester City held by Burnley

Burnley are held to a 1-1 draw away to Leicester City in the Championship.

Championship leaders Burnley have been held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester City this afternoon.

David Nugent gave the home side the lead with a 14th-minute penalty, but Burnley hit back through Danny Ings just after half time.

The Foxes were awarded the spot kick when Jamie Vardy was bundled over and Nugent stayed cool to covert.

However, the Clarets hit back through Ings's 16th goal of the season, when he slotted home after controlling Kieran Trippier's cross.

Nugent nearly gave his side the lead for a second time on 56 minutes but he could only send the ball over after connecting with it with his shin.

Burnley had their own penalty claims waved away when Paul Konchesky appeared to handle it inside the box after Sam Vokes had tried to skip round the left-back.
