Leicester captain said Wes Morgan: “We knew we had to keep calm. A point is a great result. To get from where we were 18 months ago to where we are know, I’m delighted.
“A lot of people wrote us off a couple of months ago, and I feel we’ve proved a lot of people wrong.”
Tottenham piled on further misery on Steve Bruce and Hull City with a 2-0 victory at White Hart Lane, which means Hull must beat Manchester United on the final day to have any hope of playing in the EPL next season.

Meanwhile already relegated QPR came from behind to edge Newcastle United 2-1.
Newcastle coach John Carver said after the defeat: “It was a mad 10 minutes in the second half and that was hugely disappointing. I thought in first half we were in control. They weren’t a threat, we were organised.
“We knew the result we tried to get today and had to get. We had to go for the win.
“Having lost, this is the best scenario with Hull losing. There’s one game left and it’s a do or die situation.
“We have to manage the pressure this week, focus and keep out of media spotlight. We’ve talked about some games in the last three, four weeks being the biggest and next week against West Ham is one of them.”
