  1. Vardy: No shots, no goals, hardly any touches

    Leicester 2-2 Middlesbrough

    No shots, and no touches inside the Middlesbrough area - no wonder Jamie Vardy's Leicester goal drought, which dates back to 10 September, continued today.

    Vardy only touched the ball eight times anywhere on the pitch in total, the fewest of any player to start the game. 

    In contrast, Boro striker Alvaro Negredo has had 34 touches, and two shots - he has scored with both of them.

    There's barely time to kick-off again as Lee Mason blows the final whistle at the King Power Stadium and it's all over. Honours even.

  3. GOAL Leicester 2-2 Middlesbrough

    Islam Slimani

    Slimani pen

    Harsh on Middlesbrough but Leicester fans don't care a jot. Islam Slimani buries the spot-kick to dramatically rescue a point for the Foxes.

    Drama! Wes Morgan is fouled by Marten De Roon in the box and Lee Mason points to the spot.

  5. CLOSE!

    Leicester 1-2 Middlesbrough

    Three minutes of added time and Leicester almost get that equaliser. A high ball into the box lands at the feet of Daniel Amartey but he can't shape his body to get an effort on target and the ball drifts out of play.

  6. CLOSE!

    Leicester 1-2 Middlesbrough

    A long-range effort from Daniel Amartey whistles just past the post. Three minutes plus added time for Leicester to salvage something here.

  7. Post update

    Leicester 1-2 Middlesbrough

    Antonio Barragan's cross from a tight angle causes a few problems for Leicester goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler who awkwardly tips the ball over the bar. Not much from the Foxes going forward at the moment.

  8. Post update

    Leicester 1-2 Middlesbrough

    Boro have only been beaten once on the road this season. Their defence is looking pretty determined to see this one out. Leicester just can't find a way through at the moment.

    Leicester 1-2 Middlesbrough

    Negredo is on the deck clutching his groin, but after a bit of treatment and a gingerly jog down the touchline he's back on his feet.

  10. GOAL Leicester 1-2 Middlesbrough

    Alvaro Negredo

    What a finish from Negredo! The on-loan Valencia man bags his second of the afternoon with a clinical strike. Adam Forshaw's high ball over the top of the Leicester defence sends Nergredo scurrying clear and he emphatically fires a crisp low finish past Ron-Robert Zieler.

    Another substitution from Claudio Ranieri as Riyad Mahrez is withdrawn for Ahmed Musa. Mahrez chunters to himself as he grabs a coat and sits on the bench.

    Vardy booked

    Jamie Vardy won't end his goal drought this afternoon. The striker picks up a booking and moments later is replaced in attack by Islam Slimani.

    Leicester 1-1 Middlesbrough

    Danny Simpson whips a decent delivery into the box from the right flank, but Andy King heads high over the crossbar and into the stands.

    Leicester 1-1 Middlesbrough

    The start of the second half very much mirroring the start of the first at the King Power Stadium. Not much to write home about at the moment. Boro ever so slightly more positive.

  15. Post update

    Leicester 1-1 Middlesbrough

    Boro defender Antonio Barragan's had a bit of a nightmare with throw-ins this afternoon. He had a couple of foul throws in the first half, and now he's chucked the ball straight back to Leicester goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler from a good position.

    Daniel Amartey becomes the third Leicester player to get his name into referee Lee Mason's book for a foul on Fabio.

  17. KICK-OFF

    Leicester 1-1 Middlesbrough

    Back under way at the King Power Stadium.

  19. 'Beautiful finish from Negredo'

    It was a cultured finish from Alvaro Negredo. They have been waiting for him to come up with this sort of magic since he arrived in Middlesbrough and he's swept it in beautifully. That is what you expect from a player like Negredo.
