Goalkeeper two errors cost Saints again he can’t defend the near post to save his life,l don’t know what Forster has to do to get a game l guess MaCarthy has something on Hasenhuttl or he would of been gone a long time ago.Three points lost a game we should of won and lucky to have got a draw, so frustrating to be a Saints fan and l have been one now for 67yrs and will always be one but they do make difficult at times.COYR.

Walker-Peters was man of the match for Saints; McCarthy was man of the match for Leicester.

Enjoyed the game and the draw was probably a fair result over the whole game. Leicester improved in the second half but we stuck at it and both teams had opportunities to win late on. We played some excellent football in the first half and some of the new training ground moves worked a treat. Happy with a point tonight.

Had me worried, Jan B scores and it gets to 2-2....but we got away with it.

Could possibly have been a win but on balance a draw felt a fair result.

McCarthy what can you say! He's like the anti Che Adams makes the difficult saves look easy and the easy saves goals.

Great game to watch. Redmond once again revelling in the free roaming role. Adams now regularly scoring.

Tella must get more time after this.

Leicester fouled their way through the second half and squandered several chances and Madison man of the match..Nope

Roll on Brighton

Kyle Walker-Peters was my man of the match. Another game we should have wrapped up in the first half. What has Fraser Forster got to do to get a start? Another 2 points that McCarthy has cost us.

Enjoyable game, especially the bit where Vardy missed his chance! Madison was a class above though. KWP easily our best player. Happy with a point.

Very surprised and happy with a point. This was a real test in terms of tricky opposition. Brighton will be a very different one - just hope misguided complacency doesn't kick in for player or manager.

Keep it simple, round pegs in round holes - particularly for the winnable games - of which for a club like saints we need to snatch those points.

Coyrs - together as one

Another fairly typical outcome of a Saints game - we score first again, but if the oppo gets one or two back, best we can hope for is a draw! Entertaining game though. We lived dangerously at times in defence. I thought KWP made a number of mistakes and would see a better balance to the team with Perraud in on the left. McCarthy should have done better with the first goal but otherwise did well in my view. Attack as usual left much to be desired, not enough cutting edge and poor decision making. I feel sorry for Adam Armstrong - the lad tries but he lacks composure and confidence at this level. Then again some of us had said that before about Che - and now Adams is really playing well!

2 more howlers to add to the ever increasing catalogue of McCarthy errors. I really do despair for the team and the points he is costing us. If you just take the 3 v Norwich and 2 from last night, see what difference those 5 points would make to our league position. The whole complexion of the team and manager would be totally different.

Bottom line is though, we don't score enough and we always gift the opposition a goal or 2 and last night we even tried to gift them a winner a few times too !!

We were so poor in the 2nd half. The early goal took the stuffing out of us and despite a lot of huffing and puffing, we created little.

A Armstrong is out of his depth. He cannot even control the ball. Unless we play to his strengths (his pace) there is no point in him being on the pitch.

Tino had a quiet game, but Leicester did a job on him - in fact they did a job on the ref. They went down at every opportunity and he bought it every time, almost encouraging it !! Yet when we tried to stay on our feet, he didn't pull it back for the original foul and was pedantic about where we took thrown ons and free kicks, but didn't care where Leicester took theirs from. Blatant favouritism.

Still, I perhaps would have taken a 2-2 before hand, but it was disappointing to throw away a lead twice.

On to Brighton then and here's hoping the team in the first half show up for the whole game. Could do with Stu Armstrong back as well.

Saints profligate in front of goal despite us scoring two. Shame, as this is really costing us now.
All the work and no result.
A Armstrong just not up to EPL standard, sadly.
No proper replacement for Ings and we're feeling it.
