Nigel Pearson: The Leicester boss praised his side's battling qualities

Defender Michael Keane, on loan from Manchester United, nodded in Martyn

Waghorn's corner in the fourth and final minute of added time to snatch a point and help boost their hopes of promotion.

Leicester are in fifth, eight points from second-placed Watford and with a game in hand, Pearson said: "It was really good to get something out of the game even though it was such a late goal.

"I thought we deserved it. We certainly didn't deserve to lose. We showed some good form in the first half but conceding the goal we did knocked us out of our stride a little bit.

"But the players showed a lot of desire and determination to get back into it. Leeds were a very hard working side and got themselves in front.

"Keane has done great for us so far and is clearly going to be a very good player. He is a big lad and is very positive about the way he attacks the ball. I think his goal was just reward for us."

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.
