Leicester hold Everton on Premier League return

Leicester City twice fought back from going a goal behind to earn a 2-2 draw against Everton on their return to the Premier League.

Substitute Chris Wood struck late to cancel out Steven Naismith’s first half goal after Leonardo Ulloa scored on his home debut.

Irishman Aiden McGeady’s whipped effort gave Everton a deserved lead before Ulloa wiped out the difference less than two minutes later.

Naismith then saw a goal disallowed, as the ball went out of play in the build-up, before firing Everton ahead on the stroke of half-time.

Leicester began the game with just four players with any Premier League experience, but they showed spirit and determination to get back into the game, and it was Chris Wood – a player who looked set to drop down the league to Wolves – who came up with the goods on the 86th minute as he reacted to a deflected shot and netted Leicester’s equaliser.
