Craig Dawson Strike Secures Late Point For West Ham At Leicester. Craig Dawson’s injury-time header gave West Ham United a vital point in the race for fourth place, just as Leicester City appeared to be putting their recent problems underneath them.
After an FA Cup fourth-round hammering at Nottingham Forest and a defeat at Liverpool, the first meaningful questions about manager Brendan Rodgers were raised.
Jarrod Bowen’s 10th-minute strike punished the Foxes for a sluggish start. But they were given a glimmer of hope just before halftime when Aaron Cresswell handled James Maddison’s corner carelessly, with Youri Tielemans converting the penalty.

Leicester was energised and rewarded for their progress after 57 minutes when Ricardo Pereira headed home a Harvey Barnes cross.
West Ham, who were missing hotly debated defender Kurt Zouma after he became ill during the warm-up, had lost their minds but were able to salvage a point that retains them a spot ahead of Manchester United in fourth place. Dawson rose to meet Bowen’s corner and score with a curving header.
