Jermaine Beckford continued his rich vein of scoring form to earn Leicester a deserved point with a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough.
Beckford had done everything but score before popping up with his sixth goal in his last four matches by simply tapping in with four minutes remaining.
It had looked like a rare Tom McMahon goal would give Middlesbrough victory when he struck home a superb free-kick in the 79th minute.
Scott McDonald had earlier cancelled out David Nugent's opener for Leicester to send the teams into half-time level.
Nugent headed his 10th of the season in the seventh minute but McDonald struck 10 minutes later as he converted a loose ball from a corner.
The draw still saw Boro climb back into the npower Championship play-off places.
