Nottingham Forest were denied the chance to blow the Sky Bet Championship promotion race wide open as Riyad Mahrez earned 10-man Leicester a point with a late goal as a drama-filled east midlands derby ended 2-2.

Billy Davies' hosts fought from going a goal down to Jamie Vardy's 29th-minute strike to take a 2-1 lead through a thumping header from Jamie Paterson and an Andy Reid penalty just before the break.

Nigel Pearson's league leaders were far from beaten however and, despite being a man light following Paul Konchesky's 60th-minute red card, snatched a 2-2 draw late on when Mahrez fired home amid a goalmouth scramble after Karl Darlow had saved Kevin Phillips' penalty.

Konchesky deal falls through

PA Sport understands a proposed move to Brighton for Leicester defender Paul Konchesky has fallen though.

The former England international's wages are thought to have been a stumbling block but the left-back also preferred to remain with the Foxes rather than join their Sky Bet Championship rivals.

Foxes release Wellens

Richie Wellens has had his contract with Leicester terminated by mutual consent.

Wellens had a year remaining on his deal at the King Power Stadium but last season found himself out of favour and has been told he is not part of manager Nigel Pearson's future plans.

Wellens has been training with former club Oldham this summer to maintain his fitness while he has been heavily linked with a return to another of his old teams, Doncaster.
