Jackson’s post-match reaction

Leeds will feel that is harsh - they had the chances to get something there. Fell asleep and were punished by the Foxes. Bate might’ve had a penalty in injury-time.

90+5. Replays suggest Leeds have a case for the penalty shout... McGurk getting some late treatment. Time almost up.

90+5. Bate down in the box... he wants a penalty. Ref waves it away. There was a stray toe. Nothing given.

90+5. Drameh wins it...

90+2. So close... McGurk delivers a beauty of a ball across the six-yard box. Leicester almost turn it home. Corner.

90. Chance... Drameh pulls the ball back to Bate on the edge of the box. He shoots low into the side netting. Young didn’t move. Five added on.

89. Huge chance for Leicester to finish it... McAteer breaks the offside trap and has all the time in the world to beat Klaesson. He puts it wide.

87. United finding it really difficult to break down the Leicester defence. They’re dropping right in and putting all their bodies between the goal and the edge of the box. Leeds work from left to right and back again but can’t find a shooting chance. Drameh tries to cross but overruns the ball and boots it into the hoardings in frustration.
