Leeds United 1:0 Leicester City
City failed to match their recent standards for this trip to Elland Road, with Leeds early penalty clinching the points…
Leeds scored their winner with just three minutes on the clock, with a minute’s applause for Gary Speed still ringing in the ears.
Schlupp, who has done a good job standing in at left back, showed a bit of inexperience in the role mis-timing a challenge on Byram.
Becchio beat Schmeichel from the spot and a team with one win in eight games now had their tails up.
In the 13th minute De Laet went on one of his trademark charges forward, drawing a save from Kenny.
At the other end Schmeichel saved from Green before Waghorn went very close with a volley from a Marshall cross, and Vardy was also off target, but it was Leeds’ half, with the home side chasing down hard and never allowing City to settle into their passing game.
The second half saw City looking more settled and Waghorn’s cross for Morgan forced Kenny into a save.
In the 57th minute Knockaert and Futacs came on for Marshall and Vardy.
Waghorn and Futacs both went close but chances were rare and City were unable to build any meaningful pressure on a home side desperate for victory.
Nigel Pearson admitted: “We didn’t perform particularly well tonight and when we don’t manage the ball effectively it changes the complexion of games. We underachieved tonight.”
