Leicester goal drought continues as Albion claim the points

Leicester City 0:1 West Bromwich Albion

2014-15 wba home a

The Remembrance Fixture turned out to be one to forget as City lost 1-0 to West Brom at the KPS on Saturday…
The helicopter ball drop and minute’s silence for the fallen proved to be the best part of the afternoon as City lost their unbeaten home record in the Premier League.
Nigel Pearson made four changes  with Wasilewski, Cambiasso, King and James in for Moore, Hammond, Mahrez and Ulloa.
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.

King headed a James free-kick over the bar; and then Konchesky sent Vardy through, but his low shot was placed too near to Foster.
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.
