Leicester’s limp towards Champions League qualification continued with a goalless draw against Brighton as Kasper Schmeichel saved a first-half penalty.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have now won only two of their last 10 games as they look to seal a top-four finish in the Premier League.

It could have been a fifth defeat in that sequence had it not been for Schmeichel. The Denmark international smothered Neal Maupay’s penalty after 14 minutes, holding on to the shot down to his right.

Maupay’s miss could leave Brighton thinking about what might have been as three points would have given them significant breathing space in the battle for survival.

Meanwhile, Leicester, who were strong favourites to finish third at the turn of the year, lacked a cutting edge throughout and are now looking over their shoulders at fourth-placed Chelsea – who visit the King Power Stadium in the FA Cup quarter-finals this weekend
