    • FT: Leicester 3-1 Birmingham
    • 90' Leicester 3-1 Birmingham! Beckford puts the game beyond doubt with his second of the evening! Good finish from inside the penalty area into the bottom left, game over
    • 88' Leicester are clearly happy to run the clock down now. They've been the better side tonight, so they look deserving winners. A late play-off surge could be a real possibility if they can secure the three points
    • 85' Elliott close to an equaliser for Birmingham but the influential midfielder shoots wide of the right post from outside the box. How many more chances will the away side get?
    • 80' Leicester 2-1 Birmingham! Nigel Pearson's substitute proved to be the correct one as Schlupp gives the home side the lead with 10 minutes remaining! Decent effort from inside the area, straight down the middle and past Myhill
    • 75' Danns shoots over again from Leicester, from outside the area, but this time it's well over the bar! No threat there for Birmingham
    • 70' Schlupp replaces Nugent for Leicester... Real goal threat leaving the pitch
    • 65' Leicester now threaten! Richie Wellens first shoots but his effort is saved by Boaz Myhill before Beckford gets a shooting opportunity that he fires over the bar
    • 64' Good save by Schmeichel after Elliott shoots following Townsend's inswinging corner. Fairly routine goalkeeping but that could easily have been a goal
    • 56' Elliott caught offside when in a potentially dangerous position. Schmeichel to take the resultant free-kick...
    • HT: Leicester 1-1 Birmingham
    • 41' Nugent shoots wide for Leicester! Confident play by the striker; Nugent shot from outside the area but dragged his shot wide of the left post. Good threat currently posed by the home side
    • 38' Republic of Ireland international Sean St Ledger booked for unsporting behaviour for Leicester...
    • 34' Leicester 1-1 Birmingham! Beckford scores his 10th goal of the season at the far post after Birmingham fail to clear the cross, leaving Beckford to equalise with a simple shot for the home side
    • 29' Leicester may well be playing the better football - and they're still clearly unhappy about the penalty decision - but David Nugent is continually ruled offside and they can't yet make their dominance count
    • 17' Leicester 0-1 Birmingham! There's some controversy as Leicester clearly didn't believe it was a penalty, but the referee judged Bamba's challenge on Zigic to be a foul. Wade Elliott took the subsequent penalty well
    • 10' Midfielder Neil Danns has shot over the bar from outside the box! Decent effort, but no real danger for Birmingham.
    • 8' Spector's injured, so former Spain international Pablo Ibanez replaces him for Birmingham
    • LEICESTER: Schmeichel, Bamba, St Ledger, Morgan, Kennedy, Dyer, Wellens, Danns, Gallagher, Beckford, Nugent SUBS: Mills, Drinkwater, Schlupp, Howard, Marshall /// BIRMINGHAM: Myhill; Ramage, Caldwell, Davies, Spector; Burke, N'Daw, Fahey, Townsend; Elliott, Zigic SUBS: Doyle, Pablo, Huseklepp, Gomis, King
