Kevin Lisbie struck with his 17th goal of the season. The ex-Charlton front-runner met Johnnie Jackson's exquisite cross with a slick header that drifted into the far corner of the net.

However, Hume ghosted in to nod home Lee Hendrie's lofted pass in the 89th minute. The ex-Tranmere striker had therefore rescued a point for Leicester, although they really needed all three to boost their escape from relegation.
It was a thrilling finale, with both sides having chances to win it at the death. Jackson and Lisbie both went close for the visitors, but this was still a fine performance.
