Sheffield Wednesday 2:1 Leicester City

City lost out to a managerless Sheffield Wednesday despite a 2nd minute opener from Knockaert at Hillsborough on Tuesday night…

An unchanged City line-up got off to the perfect start when Knoackaert found space down the right and then wriggled past two Owls’ defenders before slotting home at the near post.
This lead only lasted eight minutes, however, as Wickham sent in a slide-rule shot from the left that beat Schmeichel and found the net via the right hand post.
Schmeichel denied the dangerous looking Wickham with a fine save, but couldn’t prevent him getting a second with a similar effort to his first in the 25th minute.
Centre-halves Morgan and Miquel went nearest for City leading up the break, as former City defender Mattock was booked for a poor challenge on Knockaert.

City’s goalscorer didn’t emerge for the second half replaced by Hammond.
Martinez did well to deny Vardy and Nugent, but Wednesday also threatened frequently.
Wood replaced Nugent after 67 minutes but City’s fortunes in front of goal didn’t change. Only a great block from Miquel denied Wickham a hat-trick.
City couldn’t work up a head of steam going forward and the final chance saw Konchesky sending a long range effort over the bar.

It was a disappointing night for City and their 2,000 followers, but at least they retained pole position in the Championship.
