Leicester City was held to a 0-0 draw by English League one outfit Fleetwood Town in the 3rd round of Emirate FA Cup at Highbury Stadium on Saturday early kick-off to earn a replay at the King Power Stadium.Kelechi Iheanacho and rest of Foxes team could not break stubborn league one side. Setting the Scene Ex-Fleetwood striker Jamie Vardy was left out of the Leicester squad by manager Claude Puel having failed to recover fully from a groin injury.First Half The first chance of the game comes to Islam Slimani gets a yard on his marker, but it comes off his thigh and flashes a yard or so wide. Nearly a disastrous own goal by Dragovic! He plays the ball back intentionally to Jakupovic, and he has to tip it wide as it heads for the goal the corner given, rather than an indirect free-kick in the area as Referee Hooper gets that wrong.
