Leicester City 0:1 West Bromwich Albion
City had an early chance for a morale-boosting goal in the 3rd minute but King’s header from a James corner was directed tamely at Foster.
Schmeichel was then forced into action twice as swift breaks set up Berahino and Sessegnon for shots on target.
Morgan then sent a header over the bar from close in when he met another James flag-kick.
Gardner got a header from a corner on target but Cambiasso was well placed to clear off the line.
The last chance of a scrappy half went to the visitors – Berahino teeing up Brunt, who fired narrowly over the bar.
Although City came out for the second half looking more lively, they fell behind to a bizarre own goal after just two minutes. People were still taking their seats when Morgan’s diving header to cut out a Berahino cross struck Cambiasso and found the net.
City desperately sought an equaliser, but found dogged Albion resistance.
Nugent then sent a low cross flashing across the goalmouth but there was no blue shirt to meet it.
Ulloa replaced Nugent and set up King with another header but this one was directed straight at Foster when it should have brought an equaliser.
Foster then comfortably fielded a header from Ulloa, whose introduction had livened things up considerably.
The introduction of Wood and Powell for Vardy and Drinkwater failed to make much impression and City were left to contemplate a run of five games that have produced a single point.
