Leicester City vs Leeds: Match summary

Published Add your comment

Leicester City and Leeds United played out a goalless draw at the King Power Stadium, and both remain unbeaten after their first two games in the Sky Bet Championship.

In truth it was a fairly low-key affair, though each side was looking to build on their winning starts last weekend, hoping for a strong promotion challenge at the start of their tenth consecutive seasons outside the top flight.

However, the pre-match statistics did not favour either side as the Foxes had won just one of their last six home meetings with Brian McDermott’s men, who had chalked up just one win away from home in the league in 2013.

Nigel Pearson’s side made four changes from their Capital One Cup win at Wycombe Wanderers in midweek, while Leeds just made a single change to the side that beat Brighton last Saturday with Rudy Austin coming in as captain for Michael Tonge.

The best chance of the first half saw Jason Pearce miss the target with a header in the fifth minute for the visitors, while the hosts saw Chris Wood rattle the post after a fine individual run in the 81st minute.

Otherwise chances were very few and far between, with substitute Matt Smith nodding narrowly wide in stoppage time though it never really troubled Kasper Schmeichel.
