Leicester City midfielder Schlupp voted man-of-the match in home draw against Yeovil

Published on: 26 March 2014

Jeffrey Schlupp was voted man-of-the-match for Leicester City in their 1-1 draw at home to Yeovil Town at the King Power Stadium.

The 21-year-old was instrumental for the side as they extended their unbeaten run the Sky Bet Championship to 18 games.

A dramatic stoppage time in goal ensure the game ended in a stalemate.

Yeovil were leading until the dying stages of the match after Joe Rall’s fine free-kick had given the Glovers the lead, but City dug deep and left it late to earn a vital point in the race for automatic promotion.

Kasper Schmeichel went up for the final attack and crashed a sensational header off the crossbar and down just over the line, but Chris Wood was credited with the goal by the referee after following up to make sure.

The late goal sees Leicester’s unbeaten run stretch to 18 games – a Club record in the second tier and the Foxes are still sitting pretty at the top of the Championship, three points clear of Burnley in second and 13 points clear of QPR in third.

    @sabacious german borned ghanaian schlupp can solve the left back position together with baba rahman. But rather we will be seeing harrison afful playing that position. No disrespect to afful but he is not a natural left back. Look at all the national teams coming to the wc,all the teams have natural left back. Germany has schmelzer

    He is not a midfielder but rather an attacker and left full back.he has been playing as left full back in almost all his appearance for Leicester this season. I think this guy deserves a chance to justify his inclusion in any of our friendly matches.
