    Time:90'
    • Leicester City
    • Bristol City
    • 90+5' FULL TIME! It's all over at The Walkers, and Leicester somehow come away with all three points from this match! Bristol will no doubt leave the Midlands feeling they've been mugged, but Leicester move up to one point off the play-off spots.
    • 90+4 That's an absolutely cracking goal, and good enough to settle any match. Bristol will be devastated
    • 90+3' GOOOAL! MARTYN WAGHORN SCORES WHAT MUST BE THE WINNER FOR LEICESTER! AMAZING SCENES AT THE WALKERS! The sub scores with a superb right-footed finish, leaving David James with no chance
    • 90+1' We're into the first of five minutes of stoppage time. Both sides looking lively at the death
    • 90+1' Bristol look to counter, but Waghorn gets a vital interception to stop a two on two for Bristol from progressing
    • 90' Ricardo lifts a high ball into the box, and it's headed clear for a throw
    • 90' Bamba is barged down from behind on the halfway line, and wins a free kick
    • 89' Leicester are finally starting to play with more urgency at The Walkers, but it could be too little too late
    • 88' Ricardo comes to claim a long ball, and fluffs the catch once again. Mee gets him out of trouble with a smart clearance, but the keeper is having a shocker in this half
    • 87' Yakubu is back on the halfway line now, and loses the ball. He then scythes into a late challenge, and stays down. He's lucky to get away with that, he's already on a yellow card
    • 86' Bamba swings a decent ball into the box, and finds Waghorn at the back stick! Waghorn nods back to Yakubu, but the ball ricochets into the arms of David James!
    • 85' Waghorn gets his first touch - chasing back to pick up the ball, before going down under a nothing y challenge and winning a free kick
    • 84' Abe plays a decent ball in towards Van Aanholt, after being anonymous since coming on for Wellens
    • 83' Leicester sub: Darius Vassell off, Martyn Waghorn on
    • 81' Bristol push along the right wing, and Ricardo punches a cross out as far as Mee, who clears calmly
    • 80' Naughton's touch lets him down on the wing, and Leicester just can't keep hold of the ball
    • 78' Yakubu playing wide, wide left now. He tries to find Van Aanholt with a long crossfield ball, but the pass goes astray.
    • 78' Leicester sub: Richie Wellens off, Yuki Abe on
    • 77' Vassell finds Dyer on the left wing, who races up the flank from the half-way line trying to beat the fullback. His eventual ball in is mis-hit, though, and goes out for a goal kick
    • 77' Bristol sub: David Clarkson off, Jamal Campbell-Ryce on
    • 76' Mee gets in the right place to drive a header at James, but once again the Bristol keeper is up to the challenge.
    • 75' The corner is sent to the back stick and Sol Bamba! Nodded clear by the visiting defence
    • 74' Dyer drives into the Bristol box, and goes down under pressure. The referee says corner
    • 73' Should be 2-1 to Leicester - that's a poor effort from Oakley with the whole goal to aim at
    • 73' Leicester counter with Vassell, and they've got numbers! Vassell keeps going, into the box, and squares for OAKLEY TO SHOOT! STRAIGHT AT JAMES!
    • 72' Ricardo parries a shot wide, before Woolford's cross back into the box in is headed clear. It's all Bristol!
    • 71' These last few minutes haven't been great for Wellen's, who gives the ball away aagain.
    • 70' Wellends gives the ball away for Leicester, but Naughton covers to slide the ball out for a throw
    • 69' Leicester all over the place at the moment. Yakubu stands and watches as Bristol pass the ball around him at the back, and doesn't look interested
    • 67' Vassell tries to find King, who ghosts behind the defence. James comes out to gather the ball though - and the difference between these two goalkeepers is tangible
    • 66' Ricardo comes to catch a ball into the box AND SPILLS IT! MEE SCRAMBLES CLEAR! That's a real let-off for the Leicester keeper, shocking fumble
    • 65' So McAllister isn't fit to continue, and Nyatanga comes on in a straight swap at left-back. Still 1-1 here, and both sides will fancy nicking all three points here!
    • 64' Bristol sub: Jamie McAllister off, Lewin Nyatanga on
    • 63' Leicester sub: Paul Gallagher off, Lloyd Dyer on
    • 62' McAllister's still down, and will need a stretcher to leave the pitch. It's his right leg
    • 61' Vassell scythes into Jamie McAllister on the touchline, and leaves the Bristol man in a heap. Looked to have taken ball and man, but McAllister's in trouble here
    • 60' The attendance at The Walkers Stadium tonight is 28,768 - not bad for a Friday night!
    • 59' Bristol City substitution: Andrew Keogh off, Nicky Maynard on
    • 58' Vassell tries to work more space on the right wing, as Bristol line their opening substitution of the match
    • 57' GOOOOAL! BRISTOL CITY EQUALISE! Where did that come from? Bristol City win a corner, which is flicked on to the back stick. Marvin Elliott turns it goalwards, and Naughton fails to clear it off the line! 1-1!
    • 55' Bamba wins a towering header, finding Van Aanholt, who plays back to Ricardo. Ricardo hoofs clear, but finds a red shirt
    • 54' It's just not happening for Bristol tonight. Their passes are going astray, and they look hopelessly disjointed at the start of the second half
    • 53' David Clarkson finds Keogh, who fires a long ball very wide indeed. Kalifa Cisse picks up the ball wide
    • 52' Leicester move the ball quickly. Vassell finds Naughton on the left, who swings a ball in towards Yakubu! James is smartly out to gather
    • 51' Bristol try to push through the middle, but King comes away with the ball for Leicester
    • 50' Van Aanholt curls a ball into the Bristol box, which James gathers. He tries to offload it quickly, but only succeeds in flinging it out for a throw
    • 49' Yakubu finds Vassell in space on the wing as Leicester break, and he's got King in support. He delays the pass, though, and Bristol City get back
    • 48' Van Aanholt goes down under a challenge from Carey, before Wellens plays back to Ricardo
    • 47' Ricardo pushes a miscued back-pass to Naughton, as Leicester take some time getting to grips with the ball early on in the second half
    • 46' Welcome back for the second half of Leicester v Bristol City!
    • 45+2' HALF TIME! Gallagher eventually takes the corner, but the referee blows for half time straight away. It's 1-0 at the Walkers, join us in a few minutes for the second half!
    • 45+1' Taken short to Gallagher, who reaches the edge of the area and dinks a cross into the middle. It's headed behind for another corner
    • 45' Leicester win a corner, and there will be just enough time to take it...
    • 44' Leicester seeing this half out to a close, doing their best to slow the tempo. We'll have one minute of stoppages
    • 43' Yakubu tries to find King, but mis-hits his pass. He tries to make amends with a massive shoulder to Caulker, and the referee blows for a foul
    • 42' Ricardo pushes a high ball clear to Van Aanholt, who finds Yakubu
    • 41' Mee on the ball down, before laying off for Wellens. Wellens lifts the ball up to Vassell, who cuts back. Leicester in no hurry to get rid of the ball
    • 40' Naughton advances along the wing as far as the 18-yard box, before cutting back and passing inside. Patient play by Leicester
    • 39' Yakubu bulldozes his way down the left wing, before Cisse brings him down. Nothing given from the referee
    • 38' The corner is swung into the box... and headed behind for another corner! City prepare for their second corner of the match... and Ricardo comes off his line to catch it
    • 37' Bamba looked to have played Woolford onside, but the defender just about made amends by getting back to clear from Ricardo's save. Bristol City have a corner, but should be level!
    • 37' Leicester could be two or three up, but Martyn Woolford springs the offside trap on the right wing! He's one on one with Ricardo and SHOOTS! SAVED BY RICARDO!
    • 36' Yakubu with the ball 20 yards out, and almost slips the ball through to King... James scampers out to smother
    • 35' Vassell carries the ball, cuts inside onto his left foot, and fires a shot over the crossbar. Decent effort from range
    • 34' The hosts are picking everything up at the moment, King finds Vassell right wing - but there's no one in support and he'll have to go it alone
    • 33' Wellens tries to dink a ball through to Vassell, but again it goes through to James. It's all Leicester!
    • 32' Gallagher finds Andy King on the right wing, whose cross in with the right foot goes straight to David James
    • 31' Mee looks to find Yakubu from defence, and the ball ends up with Gallagher
    • 30' Sol Bamba carries the ball forwards again, and takes two Bristol City midfielders with him. He's having a cracker of a half, the big defender
    • 29' City swing the ball into the box, far stick towards LIAM FONTAINE! HEADED WIDE!
    • 28' Keogh thinks he's sprung the offside trap, but his run is just a split-second too early. Van Aanholt gets a talking to by the referee for an earlier late challenge
    • 27' Louis Carey heads back to James, as Bristol look to settle back onto the ball
    • 25' Mee's fouled now, by Andy Keogh. Leicester won't mind one bit though, as this game starts to get scrappy
    • 24' Gallagher slides into McAllister, and concedes a free kick inside Bristol's half
    • 23' Gallagher sends a 70-yard ball right onto the chest of Darius Vassell. Lovely ball from a forward bristling with confidence
    • 22' The Walkers is packed tonight, and they're enjoying themselves now! Bristol will have to rethink their gameplan now - stifling play won't be enough now that they're a goal behind
    • 21' James could've done better with Bamba's ball in, but the former England international made a decent save from Bamba's initial header from the corner in.
    • 20' GOOOOAL! Sol Bamba almost scores with a decent header, before racing back to gather the loose ball, skins his man, and squares it for Yakubu to tap in from four yards out!
    • 19' Poor delivery from Van Aanholt again - the Dutchman has really struggled with his deliveries so far
    • 18' That's a phenomenal save by James - diving to keep out Gallagher's right-foot thunderbolt. Leicester corner
    • 17' Leicester take a quick free kick to Gallagher some 20 yards out. Gallagher SHOOTS! SAVED BY DAVID JAMES!
    • 16' Wellens finds Mee in the middle, who tries to pick out Van Aanholt. Van Aanholt doesn't read it, and Oakley chases a lost cause along the wing. Bristol goal kick
    • 15' Bristol City are really pushing players forwards at the moment, but they're taking their time once the ball's at their feet. Leicester are really being stifled early on.
    • 14' Albert Adomah brings down Mee deep in Leicester's half, and that's a free kick for the hosts
    • 13' Gallagher plays a ball over the top for Yakubu to chase! The Nigerian keeps it in, but his attempt to dink the ball through sees it land behind the goal for a goal kick
    • 12' Patrick Van Aanholt stands over the free kick... and it's hit straight into the wall. Strange set piece from Leicester - Van Aanholt didn't seem to know whether to shoot or pass!
    • 11' Vassell back on the ball once again, and cuts inside from the right - racing towards the area. Jamie McAllister steps in to bring Vassell down right on the edge of the 18 yard box, and that's a free kick. Inches away from a penalty!
    • 10' Leicester look to counter with Vassell, but City look organised at the back.
    • 9' This is a decent spell for City, passing the ball freely in the middle of the park. Naughton wins it back for Leicester
    • 8' Jamie McAllister pushes forwards for the Robins, and plays to Martyn Woolford
    • 7' Bristol City leaving two up on Souleymane Bamba and Ben Mee at the moment - stopping Leicester playing out from the back. They've done their homework
    • 6' City advance along the right, but Paul Gallagher slides in with a decent challenge
    • 4' Leicester working hard in the early stages - Darius Vassell buzzing around with real energy
    • 2' Kyle Naughton feeds Yakubu the ball just inside the area. Yakubu takes a touch, and SHOOTS! Over the bar from the Nigerian!
    • 1' Kalifa Cisse comes haring out of the blocks and brings down Richie Wellens for a Leicester free kick
    • 1' We're underway in Leicester! Sven's men will be desperate for a win tonight, to move within one point of Leeds and the play-off places
    • 19:40 Five minutes to go until kickoff at the Walkers! To see how tonight's clash will affect the Championship table, click here
    • 19:30 The referee this evening is Russell Booth, from Nottinghamshire
    • 19:25 SUBS: Leicester - Weale, Miguel Vitor, Dyer, Bruma, Waghorn, Berner, Abe. Bristol City - Gerken, Stewart, Johnson, Maynard, Campbell-Ryce, Nyatanga, Pitman
    • 19:25 BRISTOL CITY: James, McAllister, Caulker, Fontaine, Carey, Woolford, Cisse, Clarkson, Elliott, Adomah, and Keogh.
    • 19:25 LEICESTER: Ricardo, Naughton, Bamba, Mee, Van Aanholt, Wellens, Oakley, King, Vassell, Yakubu, and Gallagher.
    • 19:20 FACT! Despite their better head to head record, the Foxes have failed to beat City in their last four attempts - suffering two defeats and two draws
    • 19:15 FACT! There have been 62 previous matches between the two clubs: Leicester have won 25, Bristol City 18.
    • 19:10 BRISTOL TEAM NEWS: Bristol City boss Keith Millen has not ruled out starting Nicky Maynard against Leicester. Last season`s leading goalscorer made his long-awaited return from a serious knee injury as a second-half substitute during the home defeat to Leeds. Tests have shown that Louis Carey did not suffer a broken nose against Leeds last weekend and the City captain should be okay to play.Fellow defender Christian Ribeiro and Jamal Campbell-Ryce could return to the squad tonight.
    • 19:05 LEICESTER TEAM NEWS: Ben Mee and Sol Bamba will be available tonight for Leicester manager Sven-Goran Eriksson. Mee was knocked unconscious and Bamba suffered a nasty bang to his forehead when the central defensive pairing clashed heads during the 2-0 win at Derby last Saturday. But both have trained this week and are likely to retain their places in Eriksson`s side. The only injury doubt surrounds Steve Howard, who is receiving treatment for an ankle knock.
