Rovers reporter Paul Wheelock rates Blackburn in the draw with the Foxes...

Paul Robinson: Made two good saves from David Nugent either side of Jamie Vardy’s goal, which he could do little about 7

Adam Henley: Endured a torrid first half but did better in the second half before being stretchered off with an ankle injury 5

Michael Keane: The on-loan centre-back set the tone for a mightily impressive performance with a vital early block on Vardy 9

Matt Kilgallon: Capped a commanding display at the heart of the Rovers defence with the goal that earned his side a deserved point 8

Tommy Spurr: Tested Kasper Schmeichel with a header and was in the right place at the right time to head off the line from Riyad Mahrez 7

Corry Evans: Like Williamson, put in a real shift, with the highlight being his run back to deny Vardy a clear run on goal 7

 

Liam Feeney: Came more into the game after the break, it was from his low cross that Craig Conway should have scored 6

Lee Williamson: A poor pass aside, which led to a great opportunity for Danny Drinkwater, the midfielder had a good game 7

Craig Conway: Ran Leicester ragged and set-up Kilgallon’s equaliser with one of his pinpoint corners. Missed big second-half chance 9

Jordan Rhodes: Denied an instant equaliser by Kasper Schmeichel – and a penalty in injury-time by the wretched officials 7

Rudy Gestede: Dominant in the air, one of his towering headers was goal-bound until Jordan Rhodes inadvertently got in the way 8

Subs: Chris Taylor for Feeney (77), Todd Kane for Henley (87), Josh King for Williamson (90)

Subs not used: Simon Eastwood, David Dunn, Markus Olsson, Luke Varney

Leicester: Kasper Schmeichel, Ritchie de Laet (Liam Moore 63) Wes Morgan, Marcin Wasilewski, Jeff Schlupp, Anthony Knockaert (Dean Hammond 62), Danny Drinkwater, Matty James (Andy King 76), Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy, David Nugent

Subs not used: Conrad Logan, Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Kevin Phillips, Chris Wood

Ref Watch: Eddie Ilderton rounded off a shocking performance by turning down a big Jordan Rhodes penalty appeal in injury-time

Over last 10 years on average, the 6th placed team , that qualified for a playoff place was 73 points ,
we have 50 points, 10 games or 23 points needed , sounds too big a ask, except we have quite a easy run in , theres definately a chance.

How can you award Henley 6? He was responsible two-fold for their goal and lucky to get away with about 10 other mistakes.

Henley should have been subbed (again) at 20 mins. Kane comes onto the pitch and immediately makes an attacking run. What kind of favours does this lad give Bowyer to keep in the squad?

3 worst player of the match awards in his last 3 games...
