Huddersfield manager David Wagner resisted the call for the use of more video technology after his side had a goal disallowed. Elias Kachunga was adjudged to have been offside when he headed home in the 61st minute, but television replays showed he was clearly onside.

Terriers striker Laurent Depoitre scored 40 seconds after the restart on his full league debut before Jamie Vardy equalised from the penalty spot four minutes later to secure Leicester a point.

When it was pointed out afterwards that his side would have secured all three points if referee Jon Moss had been able to refer to a video referee, Wagner said: "This is correct, but then we have nothing to discuss!

"Unfortunately today it went against us. Nobody likes to make mistakes, but they are part of the game.

"Maybe I'm too much of a traditionalist. I like the game how it is and I don't like to make too many changes, even if I know everybody likes to make the game better."
