Wolves and Leicester share the points in goalless Premier League draw


Wolves and Leicester held each other to a 0-0 draw in the Premier League as both sides showed plenty of attacking intent but lacked a clinical edge on Sunday.

Pedro Neto was energetic on the left wing for Wolves in the first half at Molineux, twice beating two defenders with ease before setting up team-mates, who were unable to convert.

Leicester’s only two shots on target came through the in-form James Maddison in the first half but both of his efforts from distance were saved by Rui Patricio.

Wolves started the second half brightly with Adama Traore using his pace on the flanks, earning bookings for Caglar Soyuncu and Maddison making desperate attempts to stop counter-attacks.

Wolves nearly took the lead from a corner when Ruben Neves’ blocked shot fell to Fabio Silva, whose side-footed shot was deflected wide by Kasper Schmeichel’s foot as the goalkeeper scrambled to deny the Portuguese forward.

Jamie Vardy was introduced half an hour from the final whistle as he made his return from injury, and the striker came desperately close to snatching a stoppage-time winner but put his header narrowly wide of the hosts’ goal.
