Leicester defender Robert Huth admitted he feared a penalty would be given against him in the Premier League goalless draw at Middlesbrough.

Referee Robert Madley waved away Boro penalty claims after Adama Traore fell under the challenge of Huth in the 18th minute.

And the former Stoke defender told Sky Sports 1 afterwards: "I was waiting for the referee to give it. I've not seen it but I think it was a lucky one for us."

Huth's central defensive partner Wes Morgan added: "I think both teams didn't create much today.

"The quick turnaround, after playing on Saturday, meant there were some tired legs out there.

"On reflection it's a great point for us and a clean sheet is always good."
