Clarets v Leicester...How they rated

Lancashire Telegraph: Clarets v Leicester...How they rated Clarets v Leicester...How they rated

Suzanne Geldard marks the Clarets out of 10 in the defeat to Leicester City...

Tom HEATON: Not a lot he could do about two top finishes. Like most weeks not otherwise overly troubled 6

Chris BAIRD: Put some dangerous first-half balls in. On his mettle against inter-changing wide men 7

Michael DUFF: Got nudged off his stride in build-up to the second, nothing given. Won plenty of headers 6

Jason SHACKELL: Not captain's best performance. Put defence and keeper under unnecessary pressure at times 5

Ben MEE: Typically dogged, and no shortage of quality. Just an all-round tough day at the office 7

 

Michael KIGHTLY: Can't fault the winger's work ethic but just lacked the quality needed in final third 6

Scott ARFIELD: Moved in from the wing to fill the Marney void, battled well and almost scored 7

David JONES: Never stopped working, striving to keep that unbeaten home run in tact but wasn't to be 7

Junior STANISLAS: A difficult game for winger to show a spark, but put a shift in against the ball 6

Ashley BARNES: Led the line admirably. Moved freely, held ball up, but chances just wouldn't drop 7

Sam VOKES: Worrying to see the striker go off in innocuous but clearly painful circumstances N/A

Subs: DAVID EDGAR (for Vokes 8) ROSS WALLACE (for Stanislas 63) KEITH TREACY (for Treacy 79) Subs not used: Alex Cisak, Kevin Long, Brian Stock, Danny Lafferty

LEICESTER CITY: Kasper Schmeichel; Richie De Laet, Marien Wasilewski, Wes Morgan, Jeff Schlupp; Anthony Knockeart, Danny Drinkwater, Matty James, Riyad Mahrez (Dean Hammond 88); David Nugent (Gary Taylor-Fletcher 72), Jamie Vardy (Chris Wood 34).

Subs not used: King, Dyer, Moore, Logan

BOOKINGS: None

REF WATCH Replacement referee Chris Foy missed two clear handballs in the Leicester box and a nudge on Duff before Wood struck

MAN OF THE MATCH DAVID JONES: Resisted pressure in possession, kept passing simple, created chances from set pieces. Refused to let his head drop despite things not going Burnley's way

VILLAIN DAVID NUGENT: Rarely forgets his scoring boots against Burnley. On target with his only real chance of the game.

KEY MOMENT Vokes' early exit changed the gameplan for Clarets with under 10 minutes gone
