Leicester's run of five straight npower Championship wins came to an end but a 1-1 draw with Birmingham was enough to lift them to the top of the table.

Blues boss Lee Clark badly needed a win and it looked like he might get one when Peter Lovenkrands put the home side ahead on the stroke of half-time but Ben Marshall equalised four minutes from time.

The point took Leicester above Cardiff on goal difference after the Bluebirds crashed to a 3-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.
