Deep into injury-time, and with City trailing to Joe Ralls' 22nd-minute goal, Schmeichel joined the attack and saw a header come down off the bar before Wood followed up to finish.

The goal was given to the Foxes striker on the night but 27-year-old Schmeichel had been confident that the decision would be reversed on the strength of television replays.

"What a shame," Schmeichel wrote on Twitter. "All can see it was over but at the end of the day as long as we got the goal. All that matters."

The point leaves Leicester three points clear at the top of the Championship table, with a game in hand over second-placed Burnley.

The Foxes remain in pole position for automatic promotion as they hold a 13-point advantage over QPR, the team currently sitting in third spot.

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.
