King crowns Foxes comeback

11 September 2010 03:00
Andy King's second-half equaliser ensured a dominant Leicester claimed a more-than-deserved 1-1 draw in their npower Championship encounter with Coventry. Clive Platt's header, his first goal for the Sky Blues, five minutes before the break looked destined to seal victory over a Foxes side who must have been wondering how they would be coming away from the Ricoh Arena without the local bragging rights. But King's sublime lofted finish in the 76th minute secured only a second point of the season for a visiting side whose passing football covered almost every blade of grass but lacked an end product. The impressive Martyn Waghorn, making his second debut for Leicester after signing permanently from Sunderland, had handed the Sky Blues a firm warning 11 minutes earlier when he headed against the post. Coventry can count themselves lucky to still have their unbeaten home record intact although they have now won just one of their last 13 encounters against Leicester.
