Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel's late header secures a draw for Leicester City in their clash against Yeovil Town.

A Kasper Schmeichel header deep into stoppage time has rescued a draw for Championship leaders Leicester City against Yeovil Town.

The home side pushed on early in the match and created the first chance when David Nugent played in Jamie Vardy. However, the striker saw his effort saved by Marek Stech.

Riyad Mahrez and Marcin Wasilewski also went close as Leicester began to dominate.

However, Yeovil stunned the home fans with the opening goal. Tom Lawrence was brought down 25 yards from goal, and Joe Ralls stepped up to curl the ball past Kasper Schmeichel.

Wes Morgan headed just over the crossbar moments later, before Mahrez fired over when well placed.

Danny Drinkwater also sent a low shot wide just before the end of the first half.

Yeovil were immediately on the attack in the second half, with Ishmael Miller going through on goal. However, Schmeichel made a point-blank save.

Miller then fired just wide after taking time to pick his spot from the edge of the area.

Morgan glanced wide and Jeffrey Schlupp flashed an effort past the post as the home side continued to look for the equaliser.

They almost found it when Antony Knockaert dragged the ball across the box for Kevin Phillips, but the striker scuffed his shot and Stech collected.

However, with time running out goalkeeper Schmeichel raced up the pitch and saw his header hit the underside of the bar and cross the line.
