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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
