Going into Friday night's top-of-the-Championship clash with third-placed Watford, Leicester needed three points to obtain an all-important promotion play-off spot before the last game of the season. Their hopes were dashed, however, when they went 2-0 down in the 43rd minute thanks to an unstoppable 35-yard goal from 18-year-old midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah.

The game finished 2-1, with the superb effort from the Chelsea loan player keeping Gianfanco Zola's Watford in with a (slim) chance of stealing an automatic Premier League promotion spot on the final day of the season.

The home defeat left Foxes fans disappointed, and made their optimistic signs seem unintentionally depressing...
