Both Leicester and Preston fans will easily forget this game in which both teams seemed to have an off day, with the only real efforts being snap shots or long range hit and hopes.

Although Preston didn`t show the kind of form that has seen them pushing for the top spot in the table, they still did enough against an average Leicester team to take all the points back up to Deepdale.

The only goal of the game came after 15 minutes when a good period of passing led to Sean St Ledger hitting the post. The ball came out to the feet of Patrick Agyemang who had the simple task of tapping the ball into an empty net to give Preston the lead.

The only real chance Leicester had during the first half was when Ian Hume found a bit of space in the box with a couple of minutes to go. However, his curling shot was easily pushed round the post by Carlo Nash.

Leicester did improve during the second half when Kelly finally decided to change the personnel by bringing Levi Porter on for Stearman and pushing Danny Tiatto into the middle of the park.

This change saw Leicester create a few half chances, with an Elvis Hammond one on one being the best opportunity, but Carlo Nash saved the shot as he did with any other attempt Leicester had.

It seemed like Leicester could have played all night without scoring a goal and Preston were more then happy to sit back and pick up all 3 points.

The Preston win means that they are now joint top with Cardiff and are only in second place due to Cardiff having scored one more goal. Leicester however fell to 17th place in the league and the top half table again seems to be a step too far for the current squad.

The next game for Leicester is away to Derby County who are in the Play Off positions, Leicester fans will be hoping that the team can pick themselves up from the two recent defeats and get some points against their midland rivals.
