The battle of the reserves eventually ended in a comfortable win for Leicester. But not before an early scare…

A pretty decent game, played out in front of a full house including (as per usual) a large and noisy Leeds contingent. And from my perspective it was also an unexpected opportunity to see Vurnon Anita in action for his new club…

I still don’t get the clappers and the goal music…

A strange sort of game…

Birmingham outplayed Leeds for the hour prior to Craig Gardner’s equaliser, 27 shots to 10 across the piece tells a story…

Leeds picked up the pace after that though, and their better finishing (and some woeful defending) won them the match…
