A 66th-minute header from Daniel Amartey saw Leicester City’s final fixture of pre-season end in a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers at King Power Stadium on Saturday.

After a goalless first half, the opener finally arrived on 66 minutes, when substitute and Ghana international Amartey positioned himself perfectly to head home from a corner following a mistake from Blackburn stopper Fisher.

However, City were unable to defend their lead, and conceded their first goal in 260 minutes of pre-season action after Derrick Williams scored a header of his own.
