Craig Shakespeare believes his side are not yet safe from relegation after they surrendered a two-goal lead against Crystal Palace on Saturday. Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy looked to have set the Foxes on course for a comfortable victory at Selhurst Park before Yohan Cabaye and Christian Benteke salvaged a draw for the hosts.
Leicester are now nine points clear of the Premier League relegation places but Shakespeare is taking nothing for granted as the season draws to a close. Benteke's late equaliser was controversial, with Leicester claiming the Belgium international climbed over Yohan Benalouane to bundle in his goal. Shakespeare believes his side were unlucky to come away with just a point from the game but admits they paid the price for failing to kill off their opponents.
He said “We need more points because we're never quite sure what can happen in football, teams can go on a run - as we've proved. If think there's a tinge of disappointment because we got in the lead. When we scored the second goal it was [only] two minutes before they scored their first. Then, we had to have a bit of game management. If we could have seen it out a bit more then I think we could have possibly gone and won. Make no mistake - they caused us problems with their aerial threat.”
