Leicester City 2 Nottingham Forest 2: Match facts
Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson made just two changes for the clash with local rivals Nottinhgam Forest.
Zak Whitbread returned from suspension and replaced the injured Michael Keane at the heart of the defence alongside captain Wes Morgan.
The other change from the side that drew 0-0 at Bolton in midweek saw Jeff Schlupp drafted in at left-back for Paul Konchesky.
The experienced Konchesky had picked up a hamstring injury at the Reebok Stadium.

7 mins: GOAL 1-0 Lloyd Dyer gets to the byline after beating Brendan Moloney and his low cross is turned into his own net by Elliott Ward. Dyer has looks threatening down the left in the early stages, supported by Schlupp.
11 mins: A great chance for City. David Nugent plays in Anthony Knockaert down the right-hand side and he races into the box, but he over hits his cross with Martyn Waghorn waiting. He could have shot himself.
16 mins: Andy King almost scroes into his own goal as Kasper Schmeichel comes and fails to collect a whipped-in free-kick.
17 mins: Knockaert combines with Nugent again and gets a shot off, but it is blocked and goes for a corner.
21 mins: Knockaert whips in a free-kick which is just inches away from the on-rushing Wes Morgan.
22 mins: GOAL 1-1 Forest break down City's right and Simon Cox gets to the by-line and pulls the ball back for Adlene Guedioura, who beats Schmeichel from 12 yards out. City have bossed the opening stages but Forest have restored parity after carving City open far too easily.
32 mins: GOAL 2-1 What a great finish by Nugent. Knockaert picks the ball up on the left and delivers a delightful chipped pass, which bounces in front of Nugent and he dinks it over the top of the on-rushing Lee Camp.
38 mins: Dyer is sent clear by Knockaert and he goes round the on-rushing goalkeeper but his touch is just too heavy and it runs wide for a goal kick. A let off for Forest, who are looking vulnerable defensively.
45 mins: City can be relatively happy with their first-half performance, but it is a very open game, perhaps a little too open for Pearson's liking.
HALF-TIME: City 2 Forest 1
49 mins: Waghorn has a certain goal cleared off the line by Ward. Guedioura had gifted the ball to Nugent, who tees up Waghorn. He shows composure to pick his spot past Camp but the delay allows Ward to get back to clear.
57 mins: Camp denies Waghorn a deserved goal again with a great save. Full-back Ritchie De Laet had delivered a cross from the right, which Waghorn heads goalwards but keeper Camp gets a strong hand to it.
59 mins: SUBSTITUTION Jesse Lingard comes on for Nugent.
60 mins: Simon Cox fires wildly wide after good work from strike partner Billy Sharp.
62 mins: Dyer tests Camp with a strike from the edge of the box. The ball is clearly moving in the air.
66 mins: PENALTY Whitbread is penalised for a tackle on Sharp. Whitbread appears to win the ball but the referee, Anthony Taylor, does not like the challenge.
67 mins: GOAL 2-2 Cox sends Schmeichel the wrong way from the penalty spot. It is Forest's first penalty for a year. It is harsh on City, who have not had much luck with referees' decisions this season. Pearson is seething and is furiously remonstrating with the fourth official.
71 mins: Dyer fires in a shot which strikes Simon Gillett's hand but nothing is given. Andy Reid completes the clearance off the line. It's yet another controversial talking point from what is an exciting local derby.
77 mins: SUBSTITUTION Ben Marshall comes on for Knockaert.
82 mins: Substitute Marshall whips in a near-post corner and Waghorn heads wide. Another good chance and Waghorn shows his frustration.
FINAL WHISTLE: City can feel aggrieved by the refereeing decisions that have gone against them, but they also created enough opportunities to make the decisions by the officials irrelevant.
