LEI vs Saints As It Happened
Key moments so far
- It finishes all square at the King Power.
- The best chance fell to Shane Long, who had his effort on the turn well saved by Hamer.
- Jamie Vardy forced a good stop from Alex McCarthy in the second period.
- The point leaves Saints four points adrift of Swansea in the race for survival.
the players gave their best in a close game. disappointed not to win, but the performance was good tonight. we need to keep building momentum.claude puelreacts to saints draw
it was probably a fair result, given the chances created.mark hughesreacts to leicester stalemate
we didn't create anything like as many chances as i would've liked in general play. but maybe that was a consequence of a little bit of apprehension in our defensive work.mark hughesreacts to Leicester stalemate
we had to be resolute at the back, and make sure we were still in the game. that was the key, to make sure we still had an opportunity going the other way.Mark hughesreacts to leicester stalemate

It finishes all square at the King Power. Saints unable to make that vital breakthrough, but defended well and take a point away from the tie.21.38
Nine second half corners
The home side haven't been able to make any count, as McCarthy punches the latest delivery.
Leicester knocking on the door once more, as the centre-half makes a vital interception.
We're into stoppage time...
Final few minutes here for Saints to make a breakthrough.
Succession of corners
Saints manage to ride the danger, but Leicester continue to attack. Gray is upended as he drives over midway, Romeu fouls him - giving Mahrez the chance to deliver.
Superb defending from Cèdric
Vardy was lurking at the back post, but the full-back gets up well to head away for a corner. Danger eventually cleared, but Leicester continue to pile the pressure on.
Fousseni Diabaté immediate impact
The substitute glides inside, drives towards goal, but the shot hits the side netting.
The forward dances in to the box, with Saints shirts surrounding him. Danger is snuffed out. But a corner follows, which is missed by McCarthy, after colliding with Harry Maguire.
Long continues to run in behind, his industry is carrying Saints forward! But Charlie Austin is about to replace him as Mark Hughes looks for an opener.
Vardy tests McCarthy!
Bursting forward, playing on the shoulder, the striker gets his toe to a long pass. McCarthy is astute, and tips the effort over the bar. Good chance for Leicester!
Saints trying to force the issue!
The visitors are harrying in midfield, trying to unsettle Leicester. Perhaps need to up the tempo in possession, in search of a breakthrough!
Davis first involvment
The midfielder finds a pocket of space in midfield, looks to switch the play, but Hamer judges the flight of the pass well and catches.
Leicester begin to threaten...
After a spell of Saints pressure, the hosts begin to recapture some passing rhythm. Jamie Vardy is at the heart of every Foxes attack. Still no goals!
What a chance for Long! 😩
Tadić scuffs his shot, and it falls to Long on the turn. The striker swivels and hits it, but Hamer is out well to smother the danger. Massive chance for Saints to take the lead.
Break in play, as Shane Long collides with the Leicester midfielder. Looks to be okay.
Saints start brightly!
Good movement from Shane Long, who is caught marginally offside. Plenty of zip in the early passing!
Saints get us back under way!
Straight on the front foot from kick-off. We're ready for a big 45 minutes of Premier League football! 👊
As always, thank you to our travelling Saints contingent!
HALF-TIME: Leicester 0-0 Saints
Saints have come back in to the game, towards the latter end of the half. Shane Long and Cèdric with the best chances for the visitors. Big half to come! 👊
Long a threat!
The striker was unlucky to stumble at the wrong moment. Rather miscues his shot, but the chance was presentable for Saints, as we approach half time.
Cédric fires wide!
The Portuguese was well found by Shane Long, who lofted the ball across the box. Cédric took the ball on the run, perhaps had time for a touch, before volleying wide of the target.
Great defending from the Dutchman! He gets his boot to a dangerous looking ball in the box, and clears to safety. Plenty of blue shirts lining up to take advantage!
Better from Saints!
Great link up between Bertrand and Tadić. The latter hangs the ball up to the back post, where Saints win a corner. Bertrand has the eventual shot in the aftermath, which Hamer collects.
Jamie Vardy is always on the run, attempts to gather the pass before the ball runs out of play. McCarthy was hesitant, but danger cleared.
Half hour played!
Goalless at the King Power. The hosts playing some nice football in and around the box, but haven't really threatened goal. Saints have been somewhat wasteful in possession, and need to secure the ball better!
Silva teases a shot!
It's well blocked by the Saints rearguard, but we haven't really got a foothold in this one yet. Approaching the half hour mark.
Vision from Mahrez
The weight of pass was perfect for Vardy, but caught the striker unawares. He nearly latched on, but couldn't quite gather. The hosts continue to press.
Gray flashes across the box...
Demarai Gray fizzes an inviting ball across the face of goal. No takers in a blue shirt, but Saints currently living dangerously!
Tadić volleys wide!
The ball fell kindly to the Serb, who rather lashes at the shot, as it flies wide. Would have no doubt troubled Hamer, given the pace on the ball! Starting to see some forward intent from Saints!
Kelechi Iheanacho shot...
Riyad Mahrez pulls the ball back for the striker, as pressure from the home side continues to mount. Iheanacho had two bites of the cherry, the second flies wide of the post. Let off for Saints.
Cédric monitoring Chilwell
The full-back is continuing to get forward down the left, but is well marshalled by Saints' equivalent. Looks a threat on the counter, plenty of pace in wide areas for Leicester!
Leicester enjoying possession...
The old partnership linking once again! Jamie Vardy lays the ball off to Riyad Mahrez, who didn't quite connect with the shot. Alex McCarthy gathers comfortably enough.
Whipped in by the midfielder, up and then away by Jamie Vardy. Tadić was fouled in the preamble, but the danger is cleared.
We're off! 😇
Leicester City get us under way. Come on, you Saints!
