Leicester's David Nugent wounded by late Everton leveller
David Nugent described Everton's late equaliser as "a killer'' after Leicester were denied a crucial win in their battle against relegation from the Premier League.
The Foxes looked set for an unlikely three points at Goodison Park after goals from Nugent and Esteban Cambiasso cancelled out Steven Naismith's opener.
But, with two minutes of normal time remaining, Romelu Lukaku's diving header was diverted into his own net by Matthew Upson and the game ended 2-2.
Nugent, a boyhood Everton fan, said on Sky Sports: "Nobody expected us to come away from home and pick up points. To concede like that is a killer but it's a point on the board.
"I always dreamt of scoring at Goodison Park. Thankfully it got the team back into the game.
"Now we've got a tricky game at Manchester City (on Wednesday) but Burnley went there and got a result so there's no reason we can't.''
Cambiasso has been more used to fighting for titles in an illustrious career but the midfielder feels his side can get out of trouble if they continue to show the same battling qualities.
The Argentinian said: "If we work hard in this situation, I think we can stay in the Premier League.
"It's a hard fight but I think this time we understand what is important. It's a great fight to the end. We need to play like today and I think we have possibilities.''
