Sam Byram's second-half volley looked to heave sealed three shock points at the King Power Stadium, only for Michael Keane to nod in Martyn Waghorn's corner in the final minute of added time to level.

It was a frustrating way to finish after a spirited performance and despite Leeds remainign six points from the play-off spots, Warnock said: "Obviously it is bound to be disappointing when you concede a goal so late in the game.

"But despite that it was a great team performance and I was really pleased with all the lads. I thought we had opportunities to go forward all the time and goalkeeper Paddy Kenny also got us out of the cart as well.

"It was an all round team performance and I was delighted."

Warnock admitted he was disappointed with the "inconsistency" of some of

the decisions from the officials, adding: "I have to be careful because the last time I felt like this and said something on television it cost me three grand. But the inconsistency got to me.

"But when you are disappointed to come away with a point from Leicester it shows how far we have come. It augurs well for the the final 11 games and we have six of them at home.

"There are a few broken hearts and tired legs tonight and it does feel like a loss under the circumstances."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
