Leicester City enter the biggest week of their season suffering a worrying loss of momentum since climbing to the summit of the Championship two weeks ago.

Prolific Danny Ings netted his 16th goal of the season — but it was not enough to keep Burnley on top of the Championship.

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson said his side lacked that “killer instinct” as they had to settle for a 1-1 draw at home to Burnley.
