Brentford fight back to earn draw at Leicester

Leicester City's Timoty Castagne scores his teams opening goal during the Premier League match between Leicester City and Brentford FC at The King Power Stadium on August 7, 2022 in Leicester, United Kingdom.

Brentford produced a terrific fightback from 2-0 behind to secure a crucial point against Leicester in a thrilling match at the King Power Stadium.

A header by Belgium defender Timothy Castagne from a corner opened the scoring for the Foxes, the only Premier League club not to have signed a player in the summer transfer window so far.

Leicester were the dominant side with Youri Tielemans hitting the post before Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall doubled the lead 25 seconds into the second half.

Brentford hit back when Ivan Toney scored from close range after Rico Henry's pass.

Toney wasted a great chance to equalise when he headed wide after Leicester's Wesley Fofana headed against the post.

But Brentford were not done as substitute Josh Dasilva struck an 86th-minute equaliser, starting the Bees' second successive season in the top flight with a point.
