Today's 'On This Day' looks at two draws as Leicester City, with one shaping the end of the season in 2012/13 season and one that saw Harvey Barnes grab his first goal in the top flight.

Barnes saves Foxes

Last year, Leicester travelled to West Ham United with the goal of reaching the final Europa League spot.

Michail Antonio headed the Hammers into the lead before the break, before Jamie Vardy equalised for his ninth goal in 10 games.

However, the home side looked set to come out on top when Lucas Perez tapped the ball into the goal after Pedro Obiang's fierce effort cannoned off the post.

After replacing Marc Albrighton after the hour, Barnes slid the ball past Lukasz Fabianksi, resulting in incredible scenes within the away end.

Play-offs still alive

Back in 2013, the Foxes travelled to Crystal Palace. The visitors required a victory to keep their play-off dreams alive.

However, Danny Gabbidon put Palace ahead with his first league goal in eight years. The defender pounced onto Stephen Dobbie's free-kick, leaving Kasper Schmeichel helpless.

Andy King's curling effort levelled for Leicester, but Dobbie restored Ian Holloway's team in the second-half.

The Foxes did rescue a point in the dying moments when Chris Wood made the most of Damien Delaney's slip and beat Julian Speroni.

Terriers Victory

Leicester hosted Huddersfield Town on this day in 1996, hoping to confirm their play-off position.

Goals from Steve Claridge and Steve Walsh handed the Foxes revenge for the 3-1 defeat earlier in the season.

In front of a 17,619 crowd, play-offs weren't confirmed on the day, but the job was made easier with three points.
