East Midlands rivals Leicester and Nottingham Forest shared a thrilling 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium as the dominant hosts were forced to settle for a point.

The two sides met four times last season, three of which ended all square, and they could not be separated yet again as Forest twice hit back to level. Forest defender Elliott Ward, on loan from Norwich, put through his own net to hand Leicester a seventh-minute lead before Adlene Guedioura equalised midway through the first half.

David Nugent's superbly-taken lob, his seventh of the season, put the Foxes back in front before the break but Simon Cox's second-half penalty, Forest's first from the spot in 14 months, levelled matters.
