Match stats: Leicester City left to rue Martyn Waghorn miss against Peterborough
Leicester City were dealt an injury blow as striker Chris Wood was ruled out of the trip to Peterborough through injury.
Jamie Vardy replaced him alongside David Nugent in attack at London Road.
7 min: Ben Marshall tests Bobby Olejnik with a free-kick from 25 yards out which the Posh keeper pushes around the post.
14 min: Posh enjoy a spell of pressure and George Boyd's shot is deflected wide by Wes Morgan.
21 min: City under the cosh now against Posh. They have caused their own problems and put themselves under pressure. Marshall fouls Mark Little and Grant McCann's free-kick from 25 yards is pushed around the post by Kasper Schmeichel.
23 min: The 5,000 City fans try to lift their side as they continue their sloppy start to the game, squandering possession frequently. There are so many City fans an appeal goes over the Tannoy for them to move forward because some cannot get into the away end. Looks packed.
30 min: Nugent does well to pull the ball back and Andy King and Danny Drinkwater have shots blocked before Paul Konchesky shoots straight at Olejnik.
31 min: Lee Tomlin flashes a shot just wide of the far post as Posh go straight down the other end and almost take the lead.
33 min: The best chance of the half falls to Nugent. Konchesky picks him out with a pull-back and Nugent is unmarked but his shot lacks power and Olejnik saves low to his left.
41 min: Davide Petrucci robs Morgan and Boyd crosses, but Konchesky is well positioned to clear the danger. A rare mistake from Morgan.
43 min: Another good chance for Nugent but he tries to cut inside Gabriel Zakuani instead of shooting with his left foot and the defender gets a toe in.
H-T: Peterborough 0 City 0
52 min: GOAL 0-1 Just the start City needed. Drinkwater does superbly to wriggle along the touchline and pull the ball back for Marshall unmarked, who hammers the ball home into the roof of the net from eight yards out.
54 min: Nearly a repeat as Nugent flashes the ball across the Posh box and Marshall is again waiting on the back post, but Little gets a block in.
58 min: Vardy is inches away from connecting with Nugent's low cross inside the six-yard box after great work between Nugent and Anthony Knockaert down the right.
64 min: King robs Petrucci and feeds Vardy and he fires in a shot which Olejnik manages to deflect over the bar. Another great chance and he should have scored.
65 min: Tomlin gets in behind Michael Keane but Morgan produces another superb block to stop the equaliser.
67 min: Morgan blocks a fierce Petrucci shot and Posh appeal for a handball. Would have been harsh.
67 min: Knockaert almost rubs salt into the wounds for Posh with a curling effort which is just wide of the far post.
69 min: Boyd forces a good stop from Schmeichel, and then has another effort deflected wide from the corner.
74 min: GOAL 1-1 City fail to clear their lines and the ball falls for Petrucci, who hammers home a half-volley past Schmeichel into the top corner from 20 yards.
78 min: Tomlin is in and his shot is palmed away by Schmeichel. Posh have been able to get in behind City far too often in the second half.
88 min: GOAL 2-1 Tomlin and Boyd get in behind the City rear-guard again and this time it is Boyd who tees up McCann unmarked, and he fires home from the edge of the area.
90 min: Martyn Waghorn wastes a wonderful opportunity to equalise. Dyer does brilliantly down the left to cut along the by-line and he picks out Waghorn, but he fires over.
90+1 min: Tomlin is in again behind the City defence and Schmeichel gets a hand to his shot. Keane then hooks the rebound off the line via the underside of the bar.
90+3 min: Morgan appears to be tripped by Olejnik but City's appeals fall on deaf ears. Looked a penalty.
90+6 min: Nugent slices a half volley wide from the edge of the box and City are beaten.
F-T: Peterborough 2 City 1
