Leicester had their toughest test so far this pre season after they had to fight back from 3-0 down for a draw against Lincoln City.
Leicester City did not turn up in the first half and saw themselves 3-0 down at the half time whistle. Lee Franklington started the scoring for Lincoln when Rab Douglas could only parry Franklington`s tame 25 yard shot over his own head into the net.
Scott Kerr then put the Imps 2-0 up six minutes later, when he walked through the city defence and slotted past Douglas.
Douglas` day went from bad to worse when he brought down Mark Stallard for a penalty. Jamie Forrester stepped up to score the penalty and give Lincoln a deserved lead going into the break.
Rob Kelly decided to make a few vital changes and substituted the embarrassing Rab Douglas for the young Conrad Logan. He also substituted Ian Hume for Elvis Hammond, linking Hammond up with Chris O`Grady, which so far in pre season has looked Leicester`s most dangerous attacking line up.
The substitutions paid off almost instantly with Hammond and O`Grady linking up in the 48th minute for O`Grady to score from close range.
Only a couple of minutes later and Leicester had pulled the score back to 3-2. Again Hammond and O`Grady linked up well, with O`Grady repaying the favour and setting up Hammond from a cross.
Leicester finally managed to bring the tie back to 3-3 with an own goal from Phil Watts in the 79th minute, after Momo Sylla had delivered a dangerous cross into the box.
Leicester simply didn`t perform in the first half, but fans can take the positives from a good fight back from the team in the second half. The draw means that Leicester still haven`t lost in pre season. Their final meaningful game will be against Real Sociedad at the Walkers Stadium this Friday (28th July 2006).
