St Ledger, who has been sidelined since suffering a hamstring injury at the start of October, played the first half as the development squad drew with Leeds on Monday afternoon.

However, Foxes boss Nigel Pearson insists the Republic of Ireland international centre-half still remains some way off a return to first-team football.

"He had half a game but he's got a long way to go," said Pearson. "It's good that he's training and got some pitch time but he's quite a long time out now so it's important that we get the balance right.

"I don't want people to start putting huge expectation on him getting back in the next week or so because that's not going to happen.

"But it's good to get him back amongst the players and training and he'll feel a lot better himself about getting some pitch time and that's always important in a player's rehabilitation."

Karlton Watson scored Leicester's goal in the 1-1 draw.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
