The Foxes shaded a topsy turvy encounter which saw Bolton take an early lead with a David Ngog penalty and then fight back to level at 2-2 with a Darren Pratley goal before eventually losing out to Jeff Schlupp's 79th-minute goal.

Freedman said: "What a fantastic game of football that was. What a great advert for the Championship.

"A neutral would have thoroughly enjoyed it and I was no different. It was a frantic end-to-end game which was full of spirit from both sides.

"It was Leicester's night in the end but I know what I have in that dressing room - players with plenty of spirit.

"Their performance was fantastic and we created plenty of opportunities. That kind of form and spirit in the next three games will give us a chance to get back into the play-offs."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
