Leicester made to pay for poor finishing at Newcastle

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson was disappointed his side came away with nothing in their one-goal loss to Newcastle United.

There's often drama when Leicester travel to Newcastle, but no one predicted a wonky scoreboard, which delayed kickoff by an hour, would provide it. Usually it comes courtesy of a late-ish winner for the hosts, and in that respect Gabriel Obertan -- one of the Premier League's least prolific wingers -- didn't disappoint, as the Magpies won 1-0 at St James' Park.

Gabriel Obertan's second-half strike was the difference, as Newcastle picked up a much-needed win.
