The Burnley defence frustrated Leicester in a 0-0 draw at the Walkers Stadium.The Burnley defence grabbed their second clean-sheet in two away games as they frustrated Leicester in a 0-0 draw at the Walkers Stadium.
The Clarets had held high-flying Wigan in midweek, and Steve Cotterill's well-organised unit were impressive against a Leicester side reduced to ten men when Jordan Stewart was dismissed on 74.
The Foxes created little against their visitors, who had two former Leicester players in their sturdy defence.
Danny Coyne has excelled in goal, Frank Sinclair is already a fans' favourite, and both aided Burnley's relatively straightforward task of stifling the opposition.
Burnley had the better of the opening exchanges and Jean-Louis Valois, on his first start, helped carve out an opportunity for Richard Chaplow - only for the England under-21 international to fire straight at Kevin Pressman.
Gareth Williams fired narrowly over at the other end, and Coyne got down well to stop Jamie Scowcroft's effort after Dion Dublin's flick on.
David Connolly's poor strike-rate this season continued and he shot into the side netting when played through by Jason Wilcox.
Leicester's frustration was epitomised by the dismissal of Stewart, who kicked out at Ian Moore to receive his marching orders.
