Leicester City lead 2-1 at half time in their game against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Leicester City have come from a goal down to take a 2-1 lead at half time against Nottingham Forest in the Championship this afternoon.

The home side made a quick start to the game, as Simon Cox fired the ball in from close range having been picked out by Henri Lansbury inside the opening two minutes.

The Foxes looked to get back on level terms quickly, with Anthony Knockaert sending an effort just wide, before Matty James had a strike from distance.

Karl Darlow kept the hosts ahead with a solid save in the 20th minute, as David Nugent sent in a powerful shot from 20 yards out.

However, Leicester forced a corner three minutes later, which Lloyd Dyer took short to set up James, who smashed it past Darlow from outside the penalty area.

The visitors were dominant in the final minutes of the first half and took the lead when Knockaert found Andy King, who headed in from close range.

Currently, the result would be enough to secure Leicester a place in the playoffs.
