Championship round-up: Leicester's late goal sees unbeaten run go on
Sunday 09 February 2014
Danny Drinkwater's volley from 20 yards in the last minute of added time saved Leicester City from their first Championship defeat since December.
"I don't think anyone could argue that we didn't deserve to get something out of the game because we dominated the vast majority of it," Nigel Pearson said, the Leicester manager praising Watford for the way they opened a two-goal advantage through Fernando Forestieri's diving header and Sean Murray's 25-yard drive, rather than criticising his own players.
Matty James scored his first goal of the season just before the interval to lift Leicester before Drinkwater made it 2-2.
Burnley closed the gap between first and second place to 11 points with a 3-1 win over struggling Millwall – Danny Ings scoring twice to take his tally for the season to 24. "Ings has real quality, and the pass for the second goal as well was great," Sean Dyche, the Burnley manager, said.
Birmingham put some daylight between themselves and the bottom three by beating Charlton 2-0 at the Valley. Federico Macheda scored in each half to condemn the Addicks to their fourth League defeat in a row,
After being told to stay away from last week's 5-1 victory over Huddersfield amid Massimo Cellino's takeover bid, manager Brian McDermott returned to the Leeds dugout to see his side come from a goal down to beat Yeovil 2-1. The Glovers scored through Ishmael Miller, but Ross McCormack hit a 25-yarder and Stephen Warnock's free-kick gave McDermott a win to savour.
With the takeover still hanging over him, McDermott said: "What we want to avoid now is drama off the pitch," he said. "On the pitch we want drama."
In the Scottish Cup quarter-finals, holders Celtic were beaten 2-1 by Aberdeen at Celtic Park. Anthony Stokes put the home side ahead after nine minutes, but they were pegged back by Russell Anderson's volley – the first goal Celtic have conceded in 12 matches. Peter Pawlett struck five minutes into the second half to secure victory for the Dons.
