Leicester City did well to recover from Jamie Vardy's red card as they earned a late 2-2 draw against Stoke City on Saturday.


The striker was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Mame Biram Diouf just 28 minutes into the game. Ten minutes later, Stoke took the lead when Bojan Krkic converted a penalty awarded for a handball.

Joe Allen doubled the home side's lead in first-half injury time, this time with Joe Allen tapping into an open goal.

Leonardo Ulloa pulled one back for Leicester with 15 minutes left thanks to goalline technology. Ulloa headed a cross towards goal and while Stoke thought Ryan Shawcross had cleared the danger on the line, the referee awarded the goal.

And the comeback was complete in stoppage time when Daniel Amartey met a cross from Christian Fuchs and headed home.
