Result: Blackburn Rovers, Leicester City play out draw

Blackburn Rovers and Leicester City play out a draw in their Championship clash, as Matt Kilgallon cancels out Jamie Vardy's early strike.

Blackburn Rovers and Leicester City have played out a 1-1 draw in their Championship clash at Ewood Park.

The visitors took the lead in the 20th minute. Paul Robinson saved from David Nugent and from the follow-up Richie de Laet fed a ball across the middle for Jamie Vardy, who slotted the ball home.

The hosts responded and could have been level within a minute, but Kaspar Schmeichel was on hand to keep out an effort from Jordan Rhodes from close range.

The Foxes could have doubled their advantage when Riyad Mahrez raided down the left and his ball into the box was turned just over the bar by Vardy.

Blackburn found an equaliser just before the break when Matt Kilgallon headed home a corner from the right from Corry Evans's delivery.

After the break, Leicester should have regained the lead when Vardy picked up the ball and raided into the box. He rounded Robinson, but his effort hit the post and the rebound evaded Nugent by inches.

Again, Blackburn pressed back and Craig Conway beat De Laet down the left and lifted a cross into the box for Rhodes, but his header went just over the bar.

Both sides tried to get a late winner, but were unable to find the net again as the match ended all square.
