January 21, (THEWILL) – Leicester City and Brighton & Hove Albion played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Kaoru Mitoma put Brighton in the lead with a stunning curling effort, but Marc Albrighton equalised for Leicester after some chaotic defending from the visitors. The Foxes then took the lead in the second half when Barnes scored with a powerful strike.
Despite both teams suffering early injuries, the match was still a closely contested affair. Brighton continued to press for an equaliser, and their efforts were rewarded in the 88th minute when Evan Ferguson headed in his third league goal of the season. The visitors secured a point with a well-deserved goal and showed their resilience throughout the match.
The draw halted Leicester’s slump and stunted Brighton’s recent winning form. Both teams had their chances to secure the win, but in the end, the match ended in a shared result.
It is a result that leaves Leicester sitting in 6th place and Brighton in 14th place. On Saturday Leicester visit Walsall for an FA Cup encounter while Brighton host Liverpool in the Cup competition the following day.
