  • That's all for the live commentary, so thanks for joining us this afternoon. That was a thoroughly enjoyable game between two sides who have both more than demonstrated their promotion credentials. Burnley remain top, but that could change if QPR manage to win at Blackpool (3pm). Other than perhaps the first-half penalty, it's hard to imagine that either manager will have too many complaints with a point after that. Be sure to check back shorty for a full match-report and reaction from the managers.

  • Full-time! It's all over at the King Power Stadium and it's ended 1-1. Burnley remain top of the table for now at least after Danny Ings cancelled out David Nugent's first-half penalty. 1-1.

  • The resulting corner comes to nothing and that is surely it.

  • Chance for Leicester as Dyer feeds Knockaert in the area, he fires across goal and Heaton parries it into the air, Mee is there to head behind for a Leicester corner.

  • Ings' cross is cut-out before Dyer then sees the exact same thing happen to him at the other end. Both sides are going for this.

  • There will be a minimum of three minutes stoppage time at the end of this second-half with things still firmly in the balance. The home crowd urge Leicester on.

  • Schlupp then cuts through the middle, shaking off Shackell, before firing wide of Heaton's goal from outside of the box. He didn't quite hit that as sweetly as he would've liked there.

  • Schlupp is involved for the first time as he sees his delivery across goal easily collected by Heaton.

  • Burnley are momentarily relieved of that pressure as Taylor-Fletcher is adjudged to have shoved Shackell in the box and a free-kick is awarded which Heaton will take.

  • With five minutes to go, it's Lecicester who are applying the pressure, although the Burnley defence has dealt well with everything thrown at them so far.

  • Treacy tries to release Arfield as he surges into the area, but his pass is too heavy and Schmiechel can collect.

  • Schlupp does enter the field and it's Vardy making way. Unclear as to whether it is a tactical change or if his shoulder problem played a part in Nigel Pearson's thinking.

  • Leicester are about to bring on another striker with Jeffrey Schlupp preparing to come on.

  • Marney is shown a yellow card for a blatant handball after misjudging the bounce.

  • Ings' cross for Vokes is blocked and the hosts clear before Marney is pulled up for a handball and Leicester are awarded a free-kick inside their own half.

  • Shackell cuts out a ball looking for Dyer as Leicester continue to mount pressure on the Burnley goal.

  • Massive, massive chance for Leicester as Vardy heads wide from six yards. Great play from Dyer as he skipped past Trippier, he found Vardy in a goalscoring position, but the striker guided it wide and punches the floor in frustration. He knows he should have scored.

  • Knockaert feeds Moore whose overlapping run finds him in a dangerous position, but he can't guide his cross into the danger area and it goes behind for a goalkick.

  • We're into the last 15 minutes of normal time at the King Power Stadium. I've said it before, but this game could really go either way. Schmeichel collects Vokes' flick-on and Leicester will look to break.

  • There's then a good chance at the opposite end as Taylor-Fletcher guides Dyer's cross goal-wards, only for his effort to be blocked and turned behind by Shackell who reads it well.
