  1. Leicester 1 Watford 0. Nugent back on the score sheet for the Foxes, and they establish a narrow first leg lead in this play-off semi-final. Still all to play for.

  2. 90+5

    Drinkwater on for the closing stages. The free-kick comes to nothing as the flag goes up against Kane. Leicester almost there. Geijo unable to keep the ball in play. Throw to the Foxes.

  3. 90+4

    Hall with a clumsy challenge on King, and he goes into the book. Final seconds and Leicester can take their time with another free-kick. As they wait, Knockaert makes way for Drinkwater.

  4. 90+3

    Final change made by Watford, with Vydra making way for Forestieri - a man the Hornets may go with from the start in the return leg as they go looking for goals.

  5. 90+2

    Anya finds space on the right and is able to cut inside Schlupp. The ball ends up on his root foot 20 yards from goal, but he slices a horrible effort high, wide and not very handsome.

  6. 90+1

    The ball breaks in the box for Dyer. He is forced a little wide and has to shoot on the turn. His effort is hammered clear from in front of his own goal by Cassetti.

  7. Four minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  8. 90

    Kane bundled out of play and wins a free-kick off Hall. Watford not helping themselves. Free-kick played square to Dyer. Leicester happy to hold what they have. De Laet wins a throw and is in no rush to take it.

  9. 89

    Almunia okay to continue. Vydra on the ball for Watford, but he has no support and is crowded out by the corner flag. Leicester can't clear, but have plenty of bodies back.

  10. 88

    Dyer pops up on the right. He feeds a clever pass into the box for Knockaert to challenge for. Brave keeping from Almunia as he slides at the Leicester man's feet to gather. Almunia stays down and will require treatment.

  11. 87

    De Laet into Knockaert, but his touch is poor. Dyer then sprung into space by Morgan. Cassetti able to hack clear from the middle of the box. Watford haven't offered anything since going behind.

  12. 86

    Another change by Watford, with Doyley making way for Hall. Hardly a game-changing swap. Watford looking to tighten up and keep themselves in the tie.

  13. 85

    Anya concedes a needless throw. Leicester work the ball to King. He tries a reverse pass back towards Dyer. Right idea, but too much on the final ball and it slides behind for a goal kick.

  14. 84

    Kane working hard, putting pressure on Cassetti. He ends up conceding a throw deep inside his own half. All unravelling for Watford. They must make sure they don't concede a second. Leicester full of confidence and crowd in full voice.

  15. 83

    What have Watford got left in the tank? They would have been happy to go back to Vicarage Road all square. They are all over the place at the moment, with Knockaert planting a header at Almunia at the back post.

  16. 82

    GOAL LEICESTER - NUGENT. Knockaert whips a free-kick from the left into the heart of the box. Nugent able to rise highest in the middle and glance a header into the top corner. Big goal for the Foxes.

  17. 81

    Free-kick given against Esktrand as he climbs on the back of Kane. He had no need to try and get to the ball. Cheap foul to give away as Knockaert lines up another set-piece.

  18. 80

    Briggs thinks he has won a corner, and gets one. Leicester were saying it was a throw. Schmeichel comes to meet the set-piece, and just about gets enough on the ball to see it to safety. He came flying through the air and was almost caught underneath the flight of the ball.

  19. 79

    I suppose the conditions have played some part tonight, with it difficult for either side to play pretty football in high winds and driving rain. I think both would have expected to offer much more, though.

  20. 78

    James into Nugent, but he has to turn back. Leicester go wide to Dyer. He feeds the ball inside, just in front of a run from King. Watford can't clear their lines. Leicester seeing plenty of possession.
